  • Description

    Description

    We are a family with 3 little girls aiming to build our ecofriendly house in a very small village situated in the north west of Córdoba. Around 60 inhabitants, 100 free horses, mountains and creeks are surrounding us. Next public transport is about 22km by dirt road (cities even a bit more). The city of Córdoba is about 120 km from our place.
    We have a little NGO called "Ser Humanos" working in and on social projects.

    Help

    Come over and help to build a natural stone wall :-) Most of the stones are already on site, so it's "just" about putting them together. We would like to build up a team of 4 workawayers more or less to join our two fix construction workers, so that this work can be done in a smooth and pleasant way for all involved.

    Once this wall is finished we need help with the rest of the construction of our new home: this could be preparing mud bricks, washing glass bottles, cleaning and tidying up construction places, etc.. Childcare could also be helpful
    Please contact us with any questions you have!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We believe that a place like ours helps to find peace with you and the world surrounding you.
    You can learn about a group of young families that is trying to build up a sustainable, self-supplying community (within an existing not self-supplying village), respecting nature, animals and human beings, educating their children in a healthy and respectful way.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Your accommodation will be in our old home, 10 minutes walk to the construction area.
    It's the ancient guesthouse of our village, living conditions are simple, but there is a lot of space, 4 bedrooms, hot shower, WiFi and a table tennis table. The youth use to come around; some to help, others to play or use internet.
    You share the accommodation with one or two of our fix construction workers.
    Very close to the construction area are a community vegetable garden and the swimming pool (nurtured by the creek flowing through the village): great places to enjoy in your free time.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We ask for honesty and sincerity. Honest communication in human relationships works best, we are open to listen to opinions, criticisms and suggestions. Our NGO has received more than 90 volunteers in 6 years and the overall experience is very good. Right now we need more than anything help with the construction of our new home. We'd appreciate volunteers who does not smoke (or at least doesn't show this habit to our daughters), the house is smoke free.

    Building up this house means that our current home will serve in a better way for the purposes of Ser Humanos.
