  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We expect people willing to work and learn, willing and open. It is important that you know and speak and understand Spanish as many people do not know English here and that makes integration difficult. Our lifestyle tries to be natural but we do not leave aside that we have to earn a living with what we do, we are entrepreneurs and we do not limit ourselves to living with the minimum. If you are looking for a hippie experience we may not be able to offer it. All the life we ​​have worked in the city and after traveling and to make exchanges to learn, we decided to bet for our project, in which we are working with determination today.
    We prefer proactive people and want to enjoy learning, working and of course having fun. This area has a lot of variety of people to know, as well as different initiatives in progress.
    Due to experiences with other volunteers we prefer to warn that homework is shared and that initiative is expected to help without having to remember it every moment. It is also important to come with money so that you can go out and socialize from time to time. Internet only available in bars and library, at home we do not have.
    For any other query, do not hesitate to ask.

    Esperamos gente con ganas de trabajar y aprender, voluntariosos y abiertos. Es importante que sepáis y hablar y entendáis el castellano ya que aquí mucha gente no sabe inglés y eso dificulta la integración. Nuestro estilo de vida intenta ser natural pero no dejamos de lado que tenemos que ganarnos la vida con lo que hacemos, somos emprendedores y no nos limitamos a vivir con lo mínimo. Si buscas una experiencia hippie posiblemente no podamos ofrecértela. Toda la vida hemos trabajado en la ciudad y tras viajar y hacer intercambios para aprender, decidimos apostar por nuestro proyecto, en el cual estamos trabajando con empeño actualmente.
    Preferimos gente proactiva y con ganas de disfrutar aprendiendo, trabajando y por supuesto pasándolo bien. Esta zona tiene mucha variedad de gente a la que podréis conocer, así como diferentes iniciativas en marcha.
    Debido a experiencias con otros voluntarios preferimos avisar de que las tareas de casa son compartidas y que se espera iniciativa por ayudar sin tener que recordarlo cada momento. También es importante venir con dinero para poder salir a socializar de vez en cuando. Internet sólo disponible en bares y biblioteca, en casa no tenemos.
    Para cualquier otra consulta, no dudéis en preguntar.
