    At this point we are looking for different positions, such as carpenter, electrician and internet/blogging in social media and on our website, besides the main work which is helping on the eco farm. We are particularly interested in people with teaching experience as we offer English classes for our Lao staff as well as with children in the local school.
    The job should be a combination of hands on work helping to build up the project and also educate local staff.

    Minimum stay should be 3 weeks - which can be extended. At the moment there are about 20 people working on building up the farm and the village on the site - from end of November on we have rooms for 8 volunteers .
