    We are a small local social enterprise, it is located just 40 minutes west of Luang Prabang, Laos by boat ride. Our organization focuses on sustainable development and providing hands-on agro-ecological education to rural communities to empower their lives.

    We are in the process of constructing an eco-home made from mud. Furthermore, we wish to construct an eco-toilet and demonstration center to model eco-friendly ways to perform agriculture. This building will serve as our headquarters and after completion; we will work to support rural farmers in nearby Pak Lueng village.

    Volunteers will get to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity to work very closely with Lao local people in our project site along the mighty Mekong river and the project that aims to conserve rich biodiversity of Lao's forests.

    Our project gives people new job opportunities and teaches them the skills necessary to perform agro-ecology in a way that will also benefit their livelihoods. The project site is quite isolated and has an "island" type feel to it because the only neighbors around are a 5 minute boat ride across the Mekong.

    Alojamiento

    From now until the end of October, we can provide tents with good bedding set inside as accommodation it feels like campfire experience in Lao jungle on the Mekong riverbank. Please come prepared knowing that this is a rural village and therefore you will not find air conditioning, or heated showers. We provide good food (Lao food and some western food) that we cook together. After construction of the eco-home is completed in October this year, we can provide simple accommodation including a bed inside of a shared eco-home. There will be access to a shared toilet, bathroom, and kitchen with other team members. Don't worry, we are all very clean and friendly! We can host a maximum of two volunteers.

    Since our project is depending on a small grant and funding, we don't have enough budgets to support our volunteers living cost. We would like to ask you to pay 40,000 kip per day per person for food and accommodation providing by our project.

    Our project site is located about 40 minutes outside of the beautiful city of Luang Prabang. In Luang Prabang, there are various temples, museums, and handicraft villages to visit.

    We are located about 30 minutes by boat ride away from the famous and very beautiful Kuang Si waterfall. In your free time you may visit these tourist destinations, or just relax by the Mekong and enjoy a simply Lao lifestyle on our property.
