Area: MaltaOur Vision Our Mission is to Raise The Vibration Of Our Planet! The Deepest Yearning of every human being is to find Happiness and Contentment in life. Our vision is to make this happen; to make this World, our World, a Better place for all and to share the Joy of being Alive. As a first Principle towards the accomplishment of this goal we have adopted Ghandi’s words: ‘Be the Change you want to See in the World’!! It is evident that Life, Consciousness and Society are fast evolving. We share the call with so many like us to be the Change, we so much want to see in our society ...and in doing so we show the way forward. At the heart of our vision, is connecting human beings with nature and offering a different life perspective. The NGO has created an impact centre in the middle of Zebbiegh Valley in Mgarr. This is an outdoor centre open to the public, providing a space in nature for individuals to connect to nature and as a community through music, art, conscious education & healing. The space benefits those who wish to organize events, workshops, retreats, hold talks, meditate, practice yoga, embrace creativity through music, art and nature. It is a space for those who wish to live life in Harmony with themselves and others in the environment. -A platform to connect people through nature, music, art, holistic therapies and spirituality. -Impact and conscious education centre for volunteers, students, visitors and the community. -The development of projects and interaction on the land and design is based on long term sustainability and permaculture principles/ethics. -We aim to leave a positive footprint by enriching the land and through this interaction facilitating personal self-growth and healing. -Through demonstration encouraging learning and inspiring those who interact with the land to apply knowledge to their own lives and projects. Why us? This is a energy centre, a space with a concentration of energy. Anything passing through this space can be catalysed at a higher force, our intention for the space is to collectively create something that can bring us forward together at a faster and more effective rate. History: The Creativity space started to be developed in December 2012. The space started off as a space where people could come to practice art in nature. Soon enough, our community felt the need to hold holistic events out in Nature, it soon became evident that a waterproof shelter was indispensable for regular activity. A bamboo geodesic dome was constructed, over time the land grew and developed into what it is today. Current Temporary structures: The few structures we have all use natural materials and natural building principles. They aim to be self-sustaining, renewable and facilitate a more natural connection to the earth that shelters us! Our Eco-Farm, which is a privately owned 12 hectare farm; It is owned by a family. It has a large vineyard and over 200 olive trees. The farm has recently converted to an organic way of farming. On Vincent's farm, we are starting to follow a model of an ‘ecologically and socially sustainable community’, thus focusing on the environmental regeneration of this site based on an ideology of sustainable living and permaculture principles. We aim to promote self-sustainability, and therefore aiming for this land to generate its own food and energy.
Area: Tacloban, Leyte, PhilippinesWe are a registered US charity that conducts disaster relief and recovery work both in the United States and around the world. Our work is powered by volunteers and our programs focus on making the most effective use of our volunteer labour pool. Our volunteers work extremely hard and maintain high quality of work but it can one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. On Friday, November 8, 2013 one of the strongest typhoons on record hit the island of Leyte – and neighboring islands – in the Visayas region of the Philippines. Dubbed a super typhoon, Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda) was responsible for over 6,100 confirmed deaths, damaged or destroyed homes numbering in the 100,000s, paralyzed local governments and economies, and crippled transportation, power and telecommunications systems throughout the region. Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) affected a 200 km wide swath of Leyte, and in response All Hands Volunteers launched Project Leyte in the city of Ormoc. In the response phase we cleared debris, removed fallen trees, repaired a hospital, demolished unsafe structures and salvaged building materials to give families the means to begin rebuilding. We have now shifted focus to the city of Tacloban and as we make the transition into longer term recovery we are now engaged in the construction of temporary shelters to be used in the relocation of over 10,000 displaced families still living in tents at evacuation centers. We are also rebuilding a 2-classroom school, developing safe cooking stations in local IDP camps, and constructing permanent shelters in the city. Volunteering: We currently have opportunities from September 1st through November 30th, 2014 This is a new listing. The previous projects in Mindanao, Project Pagatpat, and Project Bohol are now closed.
