    Hello! My name is Shyam and I am the CEO, founder and president of this organisation. The organisation was founded in 2012, registered with the Registrar of Societies Malaysia and is one of the most successful non profit organisation in Malaysia focusing on ending homelessness. We're seeking motivated volunteers to join us as we establish our farm from the ground up. This is a unique opportunity to be part of something special from the very beginning. Be prepared for hard work, sweat, and the immense satisfaction of creating a thriving agricultural space.

    Here's what you can expect:
    1. Farm Hands - 2 weeks min
    Primarily land clearing, but may also involve planting, weeding, basic construction, and other farm-related activities.

    2. Social Media & Content Creation - 2 weeks to 1 month minimum
    To create content of all the action in the farm & organisation
    - Wordpress, Facebook Ads, SEO, Instagram, Broadcast Channels, Tik Tok - ability to use and operate DSLRs & action cameras, familiarity with content creation, ChatGPT, Canva, Otter Ai (not necessarily all)

    3. Petsitting - 2 weeks min
    - 2 rescue dogs and a cat. They need lots of cuddles so please only enquire if you are comfortable around animals and/or fur. They require one walk a day (30 mins in the morning) and are on home cooked diet (45 mins prep & cooking time).

    5 hours of help per day, 5 days a week - Wednesday to Sunday

    mix quad bunk bed with shared bathroom/toilet.

    Meals - self prepare (unless we have a volunteer who cooks for everyone)
    We provide for breakfast - pancake flour, oats, coffee & tea. Stuff you add in it are under your own purchase. For lunch - pasta, rice, cooking oil, cooking gas, salt, pepper & some spices, some vegetables.

    Location: Our farm is situated in Ampang.

    Language: We primarily communicate in English.

    Bus stop, self service laundry, restaurants & grocery store are 5 mins away.

    What we're looking for in a volunteer:
    High Level of Discipline & Structure: You thrive in a structured environment and can manage your time effectively.
    Independent Worker: You're comfortable working independently and following a set schedule.
    Strong Work Ethic: You're not afraid of hard work and take pride in a job well done.
    Team Player: While independent work is key, you're also happy to collaborate and contribute to a positive team atmosphere.
    Positive Attitude: You bring a can-do attitude and a willingness to learn.
    This is a fantastic opportunity for those who enjoy a challenge and want to be a part of building something special. If you're a self-motivated individual who thrives in a structured environment, we encourage you to apply!

    We enjoy work life balance but also value our home space and volunteers who understands that this is a professional space are welcome to apply.

    The organisation residence is undergoing repairs and a renovation so please note that most of our projects are ON HOLD.

    Expectations for volunteers
    Please only enquire if you have taken all the necessary steps to keep yourself safe and are fully COVID vaccinated (we may need proof of vaccination). We have a strict safety policy, and we look for helpers who are mature, professional, proactive and able to learn quickly and follow instructions. As an NGO we really seek people who will have added value and wont need too much guidance! Discipline and respect are the key words here so if they don’t describe you then please give this a pass. Your behaviour influences a lot of the local people's ideas about the western world so we ask you to be sensitive to local culture and customs. You must have a broad mind for cultural differences as we work with people with all kinds of backgrounds.

    ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY (your accommodation is at a Buddhist monk's house)
    - We have a curfew from midnight to 7am.
    - Volunteers are required to cover their knees and shoulders at all time. Female volunteers, please wear your bras.
    - No drugs, no smoking and no alcohol allowed in the house (including medicinal marijuana).
    - No footwear allowed inside including indoor slippers.

    Please apply only if you are professional, culturally sensitive, respectful, have the ability to adhere to a routine, timetable & structure to tasks, can be with minimum supervision, mature and discipline orientated.

    The work that we do
    We are a local registered non-profit NGO on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur and are looking for some volunteers to help. The NGO works in the local community to support vulnerable and marginalised groups including the elderly and disabled, children with special needs, refugees amongst others. We focus on social innovation and aim to create sustainable solutions for individuals and households so that they can be self-sufficient. Experience working in the sector is a bonus but not a requirement, however, it is critical that rules and guidelines are strictly followed when working with all beneficiaries who must be treated with respect, dignity, and compassion.

    What else…
    Above anything else, we seek to help the people around us and to do that to a high standard we must be a cohesive, friendly and generous group of individuals who share the common goal of helping other people – and animals!
