Area: BonaireCURRENTLY NOT LOOKING FOR ANY NEW VOLUNTEERS. We are a young couple, Sarah (Dutch) and Sam (British), living on an amazing property on the Caribbean island Bonaire. The property is a National monument, with the only fresh water spring on a very dry island. It used to be a big farm with both crops and livestock. And we hope to restore that! Since mid 2013 we have started hosting volunteers and since then, we have made a lot of progress. We aim for the most sustainable and low impact lifestyle, which is why we are looking for volunteers, it is hard work! We live mostly off the grid: solar panels, water from the spring, cooking in a solar cooker/dutch oven harvesting from our vegetable/herb garden and fruit trees. But we are not there yet! We are experimenting with dutch oven baked breads and have many other ambitions.

Area: La LibertadOur empowerment center is a project under a Swedish NPO in Trujillo, Peru. Education is important for everyone. Therefore, we offer our children free education through activity to enable them to have a better today and future. It is one of the most important means of empowering our children with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence necessary to participate fully in the development process of our world. Huanchaco is a beautiful surf district North of Peru with a great vibe. Just a couple of minutes up to the mountain behind the church in Huanchaco is a little community named Cerrito De La Virgen. The area is a very low income district with no running water or electricity in most houses. Some of the kids do not go to school because of their private situations. For our school to be present in this area the kids are more than excited to come over and have fun with us a couple of days a week. We are a new organization that opened on the 14 january 2013. Today we offer 2 ldays a week of classes for the children - Mondays and Wednesdays 4pm to 6 pm. We also work as free extra resource at a public school in Huanchaco to reach more kids - Tuesdays and Thursdays in the morning 10 am to 12 am We have a women's project that meets two days a week for workshops and craft production -Tuesdays and Thursdays 3 pm to 5 pm We have writing and reading classes for the women 1 day a week -Tuesdays 2-3 pm Children's Classes The classes are english, health/environmental awareness, arts and crafts and whatever skills classes the volunteers come with. Ages 6-18 We also have a playing area where the smaller kids can hang out if they do not have classes. During summer which is mid december to end of february we offer all our classes in the morning, 3 days a week. Our main goals of the project - Keep the kids off of the streets - Give them the right to be kids, even if it is for an hour a day, by taking them out from their homes where they have big responsibilities. - Educate them -learning english will open so many doors for the children in the future to give them better opportunities. - Simply have fun! Women's Project The women's group consists of 6-12 women each meetings and is one of the more challenging projects. We have started a social enterprise with these women and during our meetings we meet to make recycled jewelry and knitted products. These products are sold in Peru, Sweden, and the U.S. to provide a salary for the women to support their families. The volunteers are responsible for collecting the products, keeping record of each product, representing the women, and creating a fun and stable environment. With it being a very new project, starting in January 2014, there is still a lot of groundwork that needs to be done. It is important that the volunteers who come are advanced in Spanish, patient, culturally open, and are flexible. It takes time to build trust and stable relationships with the women in this community. Hours: 12-15 hours a week for all our projects together Goals of Women's Group -Create a stable and safe environment for the women -Help the women understand their worth, value, and talent -Represent the women and create a unified community -Create a sustainable environment for the women to support themselves and their families -Have educational workshops of cooking, nutrition, health, arts and crafts, and self-love - Currently, we are collaborating with volunteers to achieve our goals-and we need your help to continue bringing hope to our community.
