    Description

    we are sad to tell you that our original project ended, however, we still have accommodation available for volunteers to help out while enjoying Mexico city.


    We are a group of "God center" individuals in search of a peaceful and meaningful life learning from God, by that, I mean that we like to attend church regularly, we are learning Hebrew and we try to read the bible every day, this doesn't mean that we are closed to only accepting people of a Christian faith ( we welcome all religious and we look forward to learning from you!) however we do strongly discourage people that do not believe in God to join our project to avoid having any conflict of ideas.

    We are looking for someone with patience and optimism since we are starting over with new projects, however we honestly haven't done much, our primary focus lately has been our well-being, we follow a vegetarian diet, we exercise regularly ( we go running to Chapultepec and on weekends to the mountains) we go to protest, we are not as active as we used to be, but we still considered ourselves individuals full of passion for justice, the environment, humans and animal rights, only that our approch is more Christian.

    This opportunity would be ideal for a student that is coming to Mexico City or a digital nomad or someone that wants some quiet time, we are not party people, we do not do drugs or drink alcohol and lately, we haven't even been very social, that means that if you're looking for any of this things, we are not your best option.

    We ask for a minimum of 20 hours a week, we offer 2 meals in exchange and your own room ( we have space for 2 people) ideally someone will stay with us 6 months but the least we ask is 3 months.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Mexico city is one of the most exciting places to live without a doubt, a multicultural place with a vast number of activities to do in your time off, it has the major number of museums in a city in the world, all the time there´s something exciting happening from cultural events, art cinema, galleries, to local shopping, all kind of delicious food, concerts, arqueological places, anything can be find to do in here. The city is also surrended by natural protected áreas and small towns to visit.

    However if you are ¨grillero¨ like us, you will find Mexico city one of the most combatives places to involve to fight for good causes, where everyday there´s an organization protesting for human or animal rights, farmers marching for better working conditions, against big transnational companies,ect. We are part of different organizations and activisim is a big part of our agenda, we focus our main attention in ecology, animal rights, labor work, we believe all fights are connected and we try our best to be involve in all we can.

    There´s also the option to make money in your free time while youre a volunteer with us, you can make money teaching your native lenguage, you can use the space for workshops, classes, art projects, as long as is relative to our causes, youre welcome to organize what you wish. We also have events or full time schedulle were you can get pay.
