    We are also in need of a person who can teach mathematics as it has proven to also be a challenge.

    the volunteer's tasks in this project will be to help with the everyday running of the farm and creating a brand image for our products (involves a bit of Marketing skills (not a must). you can still be involved in the sports programs but the main task will be in farming.

    We have managed to build a kiosk with which it aims at selling local products and help people of the area with scanning and printing and or also other communication related needs.
