    Working could be in the form of day to day tea plantation activities - both on field, and in the factory. This will include from fertilising, plucking tea leaves, and manufacture of tea at the factory. There may also opportunities to work in tending to the vegetables and the fruit trees. This will however be seasonal and will depend on 'what grows when'.
    Since the estate has its own lower primary school, creche, and hospital - there is also an option of working here *** please note that working in these functions will need extreme patience since the workers are not fluent in English and hence will need to be adjusted accordingly****
