Area: North CanterburyWe live in sunny North Canterbury on a quarter acre with our two delightful children, Nathan (9yrs) and Ella (7yrs), chickens, tropical fish, a dog and a cat. The beach is 2 minutes away over the sand dunes, 15 minutes walk to great cafe, 10 minutes cycle to the pub, 7 minutes car ride to local town (Amberley), 50 minutes drive to Christchurch. We have a list of half completed projects a mile long. Can you help? John is English and I dragged him back to NZ with me after we got married. We did some travelling in Europe and Africa and loved it. Meeting new people in new places was an important part of travelling for us. Having you to stay would be a great oppotunity for our children and us to learn about the world and other cultures.
Area: Gin Gin / BundabergWe accept members of Workaway.info, all year round. There are olive groves, orchard, vegetable gardens, flower gardens, dams, dog, donkeys, and poultry. Work includes all aspects of property management, olive groves, and our B&B. Our place has four guest bedrooms (2 doubles and 2 twins), so we can accommodate up to eight, but we normally prefer to only take one or two WorkAwayers at a time unless our current projects require more. We also normally prefer those who have done Volunteering or WorkAway before, as we have found that they appreciate what we have to offer and look after things with greater care. If you would like to do Workaway with us, feel free to email or ring at any time. You can read what others have had to say about their stay in our Guestbook and view them working in Photos at our Webpage (please ask for it when you write to us)
Area: Mbale, Eastern UgandaEstablished in 2009, our growing NGO addresses the need for community empowerment amongst the marginalized and vulnerable people of Eastern Uganda. Our primary focus is to holistically rehabilitate and restore victims of social injustice. We enable communities through primary and secondary education, vocational training and income generating activities, palliative care and financial development support for peasant farmers. Our teams currently operate 3 nursery schools, a secondary school, a HIV outreach project, a carpentry workshop, a horticultural farm and an empowerment academy, all of which accept volunteers who work alongside the local communities. Whether you have an applicable skill, or you simply want to contribute to the aid initiatives in Africa, we openly welcome all. You can work for as many as the projects as you wish, for as long as you wish. This flexibility will also allow you to see the local area – Sipi Falls, the source of the Nile river and Mount Elgon; trips that we can help you organise to make your visit to Uganda a memorable one!

Area: West Crete, GreeceWe are a group of friends who own two pieces of land located close to each other in the villages of Prases and Sembronas, in the county of Chania, on the island of Crete, Greece. The land is full of mainly chestnut trees, there is a forest area and a small river that runs through it. The landscape is pristine, wild and there is not much luxury provided other than the beauty of nature, a couple of settlements and outdoor facilities. We are aspiring to create an eco community.
