    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    On a daily basis the volunteers learn about themselves, about others, about the indigenous culture with the close links we have with the children who are the first target audience of our educational and cultural actions. We offer the possibility for volunteers to meditate with us every day, to learn how to cook vegan. But also to plant, forest and cultivate organically.
    There is also learning to build a house with organic materials
