Area: Zona CafeteraOur project is located in the heart of colombia, surrounded by rivers and in an amazing setting. We started up this place a year ago in order to share these mountains. We are an eco-hostel with camping area, dorms and private rooms. Un proyecto agro-deportivo-cultural en el corazon de Colombia rodeada por ríos en un paisaje unico! Empezamos hace un año para compartir este lugar y la magia de nuestras montañas. Un eco-hostal con zona de camping, dormitorios y privadas.
Area: Anatoli, Ierapetra, Cretemy partner and I (from Scotland and England) run a donkey sanctuary in a remote location in the mountains of south east crete. We also have horses, a pony and dogs. We are a registered non profit organisation in Greece and as such rely on help from volunteers. We take in donkeys that are old, unwanted and often abused and they live their last days in freedom and knowing they are loved. The dogs we have here are dumped in the area and we look after them until we can find a new home for them. Some of them will stay with us forever. We have olive trees and would like to reinstate our vegetable garden with the help of volunteers. In the tourist season we sometimes get visitors who like to walk around and learn about all the animals and our work. We used to offer walks with the fitter donkeys and with help would like to do this again. This is an amazing experience. The area that the sanctuary is in is amazingly scenic but very rural and remote. I also make craft items to sell in monthly online fundraising auctions - so anybody with artistic talent willing to help by donating their work would be so appreciated. Whilst we would prefer single people, we can accommodate a couple but they must be happy to work independantly.
Area: Beside Corcovado ParkWe are the only hostel right beside, and anywhere around Corcovado Park. If you want to be immersed in nature, this is the place to do it!

Area: Himachal PradeshHi All, I am Simar from Patiala, we are family of farmers and also actively involved in running a few NGO's in the state of Himachal Pradesh and Punjab, we enjoy meeting people from the corners of the world and arrange their stay at our orchard in the hills and rural farm in Punjab where the volunteers can spend their time in various social programs being run for rural development, making them enjoy the feel of Real Rural India, helping them in understanding the various traditions, languages, festivals, folk dances and songs. I believe, that there is no better way to discover a country and people but to share their everyday routine, be a part of their home and adopt their lifestyle. Family: Belong to an old and well known family from Patiala. The family is well known for the efforts in social service in various fields in and around Patiala. As an organisation, some of these projects were started by my grandfather in 1967 and since then we have come a long way and our experience has shown us the significance of volunteer tourism for the success of our social and charitable projects. We enjoy the help and support of friends and acquaintances from all over the world who visit us regularly and have associated themselves with our cherished projects.
