A voluntary organization in South India – set amidst just over one acre of lush green vegetation. The aim of the centre is to promote a holistic and natural way of life and to encourage the promotion of health, happiness and peace to society, promoting sustainable development in order to prevent further deterioration of natural wealth. Activities include the following: running an educational centre for humanity and nature; preparing newsletters, books, information sheets and audio visuals; and conducting guided educative wilderness trips, nature walks and trekking for interested groups. Our interests also extend into rural development, cottage industry, farming, art and cultural heritage, flora and fauna, travel and tourism.

We open our doors to visitors offering them the chance to experience an alternative lifestyle and live within a traditional Keralan family. Most guests find this a most enlightening experience, far from the tourist crowd. During this time, we ask that you help in any way you can to the development and maintenance of the centre. Volunteers are our biggest need. We need administrative volunteers for planning and implementation of long and short-term projects such as nature camps and green health programmes. These volunteers would also help with international correspondence, computer work, preparing newsletters, booklets, leaflets and handbooks. Workawayers can get involved in alternative lifestyle projects, including herbal medicine, yoga, meditation and Kerala cooking. There is also an opportunity to teach English to local students
Workawayers will receive good home-cooked vegetarian food (fish and egg included) and basic accommodation at the centre. Single accommodation can be arranged if available.
