Workaway works on word of mouth and local publicity.. If you like the idea and want to do your part in helping promote the site then please print out a poster and display it in a noticeable place.
Good ideas of where to hang a poster would be; Backpackers, youth hostels , travellers bars , small hotels, local notice boards...anywhere where you think travellers might benefit from seeing the workaway message.
Thank you so much and have a great time travelling :)

Area: EnglandWe are a family with 2 teenagers who run a small farm in North Cornwall. Both John and myself teach part time in FE. We are looking for someone to learn some skills in exchange for some help with projects we are currently undertaking. Our main business is servicing garden machinery and making CIDER (Yes really). John is a trained blacksmith and welder and we also keep bees, rare breed poultry and teach a variety of agricultural subjects. We are expanding our cider making business and as such are a little stretched around the place just now.
Area: ArdecheWe are guys from germany and we live in an old farmhouse in the mountains on the border of Nationalpark Cévennes in Department Ardèche/Southern France. A small holidayhouse for guests is included. We are on the wild countryside of Ardeche, ideal for people, who like nature and retirement. We are looking for one guy (we have only place left for one volunteer, no couples, sorry) who will help us with construction and building works. You dont need to be experienced but you should like to work with concrete, stones, wood and earth. If you like building and constuction work, it will be here a perfect place with a lot of space to realize your creative ideas. In the summer period (april - october) we are also organizing hiking and adventure sports weeks for groups and we cook for them. Only in these group weeks we need sometimes additional help in the kitchen and for cleaning. Not really important, but you should know: This is a gay community place, most of our guests and we are gay men. On your free days you can join the groups for hiking, cycling or kayaking or just relax on our qiet place in the mountains. There is the possibility for you to discover Southern France, the real deep country side in the mountains, to meet a lot of nice people, to learn how to construct walls and houses and enjoy an alternative, independent and down to earth lifestyle. Please note: - there is no internet access - there is no public transport, we will catch you from the next bus or train station, but if you dont have your own car or motocycle, you cant go anywhere on your own (next villiage is 16 km away)
Area: DhadingI am Ajay, age of 35, I am founder and Principal of our academy, Vice- Chairman of the Prominent Welfare Society, Scouts Master for Nepal Scouts ( SCA Troop) and involved in local clubs with social services. I have a Master's Degree in Political Science, and a BA Degree in English Literature from Tribhuvan University. I have been teaching for ten years. My wife Bina, age of 28, is an administrator at the Academy and works in local women's groups as the leader in women empowerment issues. We have five year old daughter "Eminent Rimal (Sanskriti)", she prefers her Nepali name "SANSKRITI" which means culture. She reads in Class one at the Academy. I founded the academy in 2007 after a final wish from my father, who was a pioneer in bringing English education in to rural parts of Nepal. Sadly during the political crisis his school failed and he asked me to continue his dream of bringing education to all to develop communities. It is a government registered English medium school 4 km from our home which is located at the side of river Dharke, Dhading. Our place is one hour drive from Kathmandu ( 25 Kilometers) and on the way to Pokhara. We currently have 200 students that range from nursery to class 10 (age4-18). We want to develop our community by educating young people through active involvement in education, health, agriculture, languages, cultures, lifestyles, music, games and sports, the environment and its sustainability. Our Academy Mission • We provide qualitative education to both under privileged and privileged children irrespective of colour, creed religion and castes. Further, the students get ample opportunities to achieve their goals, establish social norms and values, and develop moral character in this ever changing world. At the academy, we believe in an education based on proper caring, counselling, love , positive thinking with a rounded curriculum. Our curriculum is based on significant lessons of mental and spiritual well-being, a direct involvement with nature to learn about sustainability of the environment, as well as music, sports, personality development, elocution, organic farming, project work, poetry, scouting, creativity and services that have been provided to the students by utilizing limited and locally available resources. At the Academy we provide our students the tools to unlock their potential and the freedom to explore the success in life in this ever changing world. The wealth of skills, knowledge and experiences that are brought by volunteers really builds a multi-cultural link for our students with the wider world. We welcome volunteers with mutual understanding, cooperation and a willingness to share food, cultures, lifestyle, languages, skills. Therefore creating a world wide network. Our Achievements: • Yale University's Service Project "Reach Out Spring Break Trip 2012". had been successfully completed their Trip at our Academy which helped students to learn many valuable lessons. • Participated in the Junior Wushu World Championship in Singapore and Asian Championship in China • 11 Gold medals at school-level Wushu games and 1 Gold medal in National Wushu Championship, including the best player award. We have excellence performance in educational activities by using limited resources. We are keen hosts and provide a traditional family experience for our volunteers. We hope to broaden our mutual understanding of other cultures, languages and lifestyles and share ideas to make our academy a success.
