  • Description

    Description

    It is an eco project in rural place at Antananarivo, Madagascar. The optic is to develop the community of farmers towards sustainable development through sustainable tourism, in mountain locality.
    On its top, the mountain offers a panoramic view on all the capital and its surroundings.
    My way is to introduce and to perform permaculture to the people. My work is focused on living this field and managing tourism in the localities by leading a cooperative there.
    All we do, everyone can do. The cooperative produces agriculture products and handmade, raises animals.
    The work in place where the project is about to help for constructing eco place, design it in and out.
    Now, we have one house half finished. We no still touch at the interior design.
    All around, we just have magnificent view and cultural tradition mixed with some modern life.

    The workawayer can chose our domain, in a gite in the middle of the mountain without population in a traditional house in raw soil and woods. It is a gite specially designed for the project.
    Also, we have the volunteers family hosts in the cooperative. A majority of the members have a family and live in the village bellow the mountain.
    In all the cases, the food will be cooked by someone in the cooperative and the volunteer can learn and try to cook with the members.

    We offer 2 meals (breakfast and dinner) a day for 15-20 hours a week.
    Workawayer can sleep all nights at home.

    What else ...

    The area is really calm. My life is to go there five days on the week to manage the project of sustainable tourism and maintaining the gite in construction (2019). My degree is about sustainable tourism so I have some guiding experiences. And arts, music and sports inspire my steps in this life.
