  • Description


    Hello everyone!
    My name is Atallah from Jordan, I live in wadi Rum desert south of Jordan. My family lives in the desert as Bedouin Nomads, moving in the desert each 3 or 4 months from place to place.
    We have goats and camels and right now we have a lot of baby goats! We milk the animals to make cheese and batter and make sure that each baby animal drinks milk from their own mother. Also, we make sure that our animals are well treated and happy 😊
    In this period of the year we need 1 or 2 volunteers to help with my family taking care of the flock, for about a month.

    If you like animals, and are curious about new experiences, do not hesitate to contact me. As you will be living with my mother and sisters, we can only host girls (or a couple).
    In return of that help, you shall discover and enjoy the beduin way of life and culture, and explore the amazing desert we live in!
