Area: Cianjur-West JavaVolunteering is a chance to sleep in a local, Indonesian-style house, sample fresh, home-cooked fare and socialize with a group of inquisitive and friendly young Indonesians. Cianjur-West Java is a small town located in between two big cities, Jakarta as a capital city and Bandung as a province capital city. I and my friends, mostly English teachers would like to invite any volunteers to motivate and improve our student's English ability, because Cianjur town is off the beaten track, there is hardly any tourist around anywhere you go.
Area: GuanacasteWe are in the process of creating a revolutionary "think outside the box" new model for sustainable monkey and wildlife rescue centers, run entirely by volunteers. We are currently working on producing food to feed the volunteers, using organic permaculture methods. We also will be needing to construct more housing or "cabins" for the volunteers, using recycled and natural building materials. The founder of the farm is Vicki, who has a strong love for animals and is driven to see this succeed in becoming the model to follow for future sanctuaries and rescue centers. We are in our infancy and have many ideas, projects and dreams and welcome hard-working driven volunteers with positive attitudes to help us with their own knowledge and skills. We need immediate help in fund raising and in developing products to sell to support the growth of the farm. We could also use help with our permaculture design and implementation. We have a small scale successful aquaponics system, a few small planting beds, a straw bale garden, a small food forest and some animals: horses, goats, pigs, egg and meat chickens, ducks, parrots, cats, dogs, rabbits, and tilapia. We do raise and process our own meat here, so this is probably not the place for vegans. We would like to set up cheese production, bee keeping, expand our aquaponics systems, and build more housing for volunteers in addition to large pens for the monkeys and other wildlife we will rescue. We also would like a humanure composting toilet, a wood burning pizza and bread oven, electrical fencing, a natural swimming pool, a duck pond and many other special projects. In addition to needing people with permaculture design experience, we need people with experience in welding, electrical work, solar power, plumbing, aquaponics, farm animal care, wildlife and monkey rescue experience, marketing, fundraising, bee keeping, building with recycled materials such as "eco-bricks" and glass bottles, composting toilets, electrical fencing and we're open to ideas. We really are just getting started and still far away from being sustainable or having a well structured program. We are working very hard to become more and more sustainable and feed ourselves and the volunteers, but for now we just can't. We do have "day old" food donated to us daily by a local bakery, super market, and fruit and vegetable stand. We ask that you provide the rest of your own food. Food costs in Costa Rica are very expensive. What we do have, we share.

Area: VictoriaWe are a family of 2 women and 2 children. Our kids are aged 10 and 12 and love having people come to stay, especially people willing to play cards or board games! Rachel works full time for a not for profit training organisation and Amy works part time coordinating a toy library in the inner city. Both kids are at school 5 days a week and in their spare time they enjoy reading, playing on the computer, sports and cooking. We also have our 18 year old niece living with us who studies at a nearby university. We don't eat meat other than fish and seafood and we like to cook healthy meals. Our house is only about 8kms from the city centre and we are very close to public transport. The tram that runs past our house travels through fitzroy to the city.
