Area: Motueka/TasmanI live in a semi-rural area just outside of Motueka and need help in the garden (lots of weeding & general tidying up) and some cleaning the B&B room or in my part of the house.

Area: Nueva Loja - Sucumbios - EcuadorWe are a family that lives close to the Ecuadorian Amazon. If you want to join us, there are many things you can do, for example... social work in the city or in a school, organize adventures with teens, or help me in the garden. Strong, energetic people can help me with building projects. You will live in my family's home where you will share a room with a couple of other volunteers. You can use everything you want. We will provide you food and sometimes we will cook together, but you can always use the kitchen. My family just speaks Spanish, so it's your chance to improve your language knowledge. We all are really social and love spending time together, for example watching movies or just chatting.
