Área: San Pedro SulaMy sister Angela is a honduranian singer and founded the hostel in 2005. At this time there were no hostels in San Pedro Sula. She realized that there were a lot of backpackers coming to San Pedro Sula and opened the first hostel here. She moved to Tegucigalpa and since three years I, Loret, am managing the hostel. We have 8 dorms with 8 beds each. But there is also the option to have a private room. We have a spacious kitchen, a living room with tv and wifi.

Área: KeralaSarang is a center for learning sustainable lifestyle. The main campus is located on a remote hilltop and has been developed as a live textbook for environmental re-generation, soil regeneration, watershed management and natural farming. Our family is a growing alternative school. We have 9 children living & learning with us, from age 6 to 20 years. Gopalakrishnan and Vijayalekshmi, the founders of the school have relocated to a sub-campus for the student's art studies. Gautham, the couple's son, his wife Anuradha were supporting the school through their work. In June 2013 their tiny family, including 3 year old Hiranya and 4 month old little boy are planning to move up to the farm. We intend to work on construction using wood, repairing a well, removing soil from a check dam reservoir and cultivation of seasonal crops. On our list is also the documentation of biodiversity on the farm and a comparative study with the adjacent area. We would love hands to share the work of building a truly sustainable center for learning.
Área: SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS AND ISLANDS. ARGYLLDAVID AND ANN Hi! we are a retired,married,pair of grandparents(now great grandparents) "HELP WANTED WITH BUILDING REGS!) carpentry, carpet fitting, roofers! plumbers!.decorators! electricians! WE LIVE IN HOPE !!! living in a big house on the waters edge, by the side of the Clyde ,on the Pedestrian Promenade looking south towards the Islands of Bute, Arran, and Cumbrae. We need help with getting our house in good order, including painting the outside of the house,(done now-apart from the woodwork), we have a large garden and also need help with sorting it out. Mainly cutting back weeds and bushes. It's a wild garden, full of birds but other folk don't like it, it's too wild! lots of hard work ! We need someone to help us decorate the house, and someone with painting and decorating skills, knowledge of the art of wallpapering would be most welcome, and do some small running repairs, including woodwork, some carpentry skills would be an asset, and painting, We are pensioners, and our family has flown the nest and we cannot afford to pay for this work, I am disabled, and Ann is diabetic, though we don't let little things like that slow us down ! but we live in the "gateway to the highlands" at the start of Scotland's first national park, right on the shore edge. the area around here is very popular with tourists but the area is so big ,you never see the tourists. the history of scotland surrounds us, just 100 metres from the house is the memorial to the massacre of the lamonts by the campbell clan. the drive from here to glasgow airport (unless you take the ferry-which is quicker!) is probably one of the most fantastic scenic drives in the world, going past 7 lochs,including the bonnie ,bonnie banks of loch lomond. Ann is an excellent cook and plenty of food will be available,We have a large sun-deck facing south down the river(sea)(fiord) and enjoy having a weekly bar-b-que, there's enough room on the deck and in the conservatory for 20 or more to have a party. but would lke volunteers ASP. SUNSET PICTURE WAS JUST TAKEN FROM THE GARDEN DECORATORS, CARPENTERS, SHOVELERS STILL NEEDED . ALSO-------------------Anyone good at web design? and formulating a strategy for marketing the hostel to folk from outside the uk. who wish to learn english? ---------------------LATEST NEWS .....anyone out there capable of wiring a fire alarm? the above two are really important-must mustn't expect too much, we all live in hope though ! just uploaded pics of house-before and after, thanks everyone! as an extra incentive all workaways wll be able to return for free when we have the hostel open, for the same number of days they have helped. plus we are going to keep open one or 2 places for workaways even after the hostel is open ,to continue to help with ongoing maintenance. UPDATE after work we all went for a short drive, 2 spanish ladies, 2 americans, one polish guy, and david, ann stayed behind to make dinner and one of her fruit pies. we went south to Toward lighthouse,looking across the kyles to the capital of the isle of Bute, Rothsay. and round and along the shore edge of loch striven, joe p. one of the workawayers took the 4 pics. we've just downloaded went to pucks glen couple of days later, 2 spanish ladies marta and sonia,and joe P and david Mc. ladies did the circuit, guys disobeyed orders and went to the top ! pics are not of pucks glen but from the hilltop over it, naughty boys, host david stayed at the carpark. WE WANT TO TURN THE HOUSE INTO A TRAVELLERS HOSTEL WITH LANGUAGE TUITION. ALL YEAR ROUND-SO A or SOME SEMI PERMANENT volunteer POSITION/S WOULD EXIST. however we are still welcoming anyone who wants to come and help, SO CONTACT US AND TELL US WHEN YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME AND FOR HOW LONG. AND WE WLL REPLY WITH AVAILABLE DATES I HAVE ADDED BUILDING TO THE JOB LIST AS THERE ARE SOME JOBS A GENERAL BUILDER COULD DO-NOT BECAUSE WERE BUILDING ANTHING NEW, ! we are following workaway site rules, 5 days working, 5 hours, we now have 1 hour for breakfast from 8 til 9 work 9 til til 12, lunch, 12 til 1 then work 1 til 3. dinner is generaly a late dinner around 7 or 8 PM, USE FULL QUOTE FROM "work-away site- advice to hosts@ " Food is normally included in the exchange, and in most exchanges the tasks of cooking and clearing up are also SHARED. This means that you are not expected to prepare three meals a day for your volunteers!" though we do-but appreciate help in doing so ! these hours were decided by the first workaways here, and are always subject to discussion. and are variable according to weather and mutual agreement ! we are also of the opinion that the other site guidance of "start with 5 days and then continue if both agree" is a good idea! though it's a very short time, it does allow each party to find out whether it's going to work, though if you're not a mickey taker we would envisage that a longer time would normally follow on. we don't follow folk around ,checking if they are working, as folk come here to help, and so expect them "to play the game"
Área: HvolsvöllurWe are a farm on the south parts of Iceland, 10 km from Eyjafjallajökull. On our farm we breed horses and we also have a very successful turf company. Our turf company is a family operated, and it has been from the year 1960. During the winter time we train our horses and we are also going over and preparing our machines and out buildings for the summer. The people that are living here is Guðmundur, who is the owner of the farm. And at the moment it´s one staff member, Kim, who has been working at the farm for the last 4 years. We also have 2 dogs, witch Kim owns. There is also 2 cats and 60 horses here. During the summer time it´s usually more staff members working here. Because the turf company is mostly operated during the summer, we also operate the turf company during the winter but in a smaller scale. We are also in tree planting during the summer. We have planted over 100 000 trees and there is a lot more to plant.
