Área: UttarakhandOurs is an organization in North India that provides health care services to underprivileged women and children who reside in slums and villages. We are located in Dehradun, approximately 6 hours north of Delhi. This is an NGO that aims to empower women to increase their ability to make informed family planning and reproductive health choices. We provide reproductive health care services that will enhance the health and quality of life of the women, girls and adolescents in our target areas. Our programs address maternal, child, reproductive health and new-born health, as well as gaps in family planning and acute care needs. This program has been operational for 3 years and provided health care to over 70,000 women and children in the first year of operations. We accept volunteers from all backgrounds. Depending on the background, volunteers, will be asked to help in the field (health camps) and check vitals, help in registration, do lab tests or help in the education classes. Volunteers can also work in the office, doing administrative tasks, such as reviewing reports, contacting donors, data entry, writing letters, working on the homepage, organizing events and so on, depending on what activities are going on when the volunteers are here. Some volunteers have worked with the staff members to teach them english and improve their writing skills. Volunteers can also accompany staff to the high schools (if they are in session) for the adolescent reproductive health classes we teach in the schools. If the volunteers have a background in health care or health education, they would help evaluate the health care and health education. This can range from infection control audits to medication management. Accommodation is provided (but there are dogs). Food is NOT included.
Área: Canary Islands (LA PALMA)Ours is a project born with the desire to "awaken" the potential in all of us, accompanying through a holistic approach towards a new consciousness in this unique era of change. For that purpose we offer regularly retreats, workshops, conferences of all kind: yoga, meditation, bio-dance, ayurveda, etc The centre is mantained by a small group of volunteers. At the moment we have already 2 long-term volunteers but we welcome more people with specific skills. We have different projects in mind : - To build a big pond, a dry toilet and an outdoor kitchen for the tipi area and the future camping site. - To plant more fruit trees and vegetables. - Also we welcome people that knows how to promote efficiently this kind of centre outside canary islands. The project is placed in the east side of La Palma, near the capital and the airport. It's surrounded by mountains, forrest, and it has wonderful sea views but is over 400m2 so is not so close to the beach and can be a bit cold in winter compared to other parts of canary islands but if you like nature and a quiet life you will feel in a paradise. We work towards a sustainable environment and welcome people who knows about permaculture. See you soon!

Área: BromelyWe have been running a retreat for the arts (mostly yoga) at our family home here in Jamaica for ten years. The house has been in the family for five generations (we are anglo/Jamaicans). We have a close relationship with the community of Walkerswood - we helped start the now famous Walkerswood Caribbean Foods - the first to bottle Jerk Seasoning.
Área: KentuckyWe farm organically, mostly with horses. Live sort of self-sufficient lifestyle in off grid home, but have farm office with Internet access. Contact us for the link to our youtube farm/music video where you can see farm and meet us. It's different now with the children growing /going and we lost my wife in 2010. now only one child still on farm and they are now away at times now for school/work. Too short handed to continue as normal, but trying 'work exchange' for some extra hands while scaling down. Located in beautiful central Kentucky, one hour north of 'MUSIC CITY USA' (Nashville, TN). Lots of lakes, rivers and world's largest cave system. Mammoth Cave National Park. Also Great Smoky Mountain National Park, which is America most visited Park and is an easy drive. You can check them both out on line. We're not commercially farming now, just growing and preserving much of our own food and for our animals. We breed, raise and train border collies for herding. All of our animals have free run of pastures, except the Border collies we are training. Unless fully trained, if left unsupervised herding dogs will find and possibly harm livestock. So we need help exercising and caring for the dogs since they stay in pens. We also need help caring for the goats, sheep, cows and horses. We also have our own milk cow and sometimes milk goats. We make our own yogurt, can our own food ect. Have four horses for farming and occasional riding. Wild turkeys and deer and peacocks commonly seen. We heat and cook with woodstoves. Sometime we work hard; sometimes we do not. Summer days in growing season can be long and hard, but rainy days help balance it out. We normally take some time off for fun things. That said, life is pretty satisfying just like we are living, so it's not a 'need to get away' thing, we just like to go kayaking and other things too. Feel free to ask anything you wish to determine if interested in visiting and helping us. We enjoy working/interacting with others including those different culturally and spiritually. We've had visitors/helpers from several foreign countries and around the states; through a different work exchange It has been a great two-way experience so far. If you wish, we are glad to supply you with reviews from our guest since it was through another organization. Be wise...be thankful, JCK & Family
