    Last update on: June 20th 2019

    We are building our little community in the middle of the paradise island of Malapascua, about 3 minutes walk from the beautiful north beach.
    It's a peaceful area, with a lot of trees and plants and flowers, and we're building with bamboo and wood to keep the natural relaxing vibe of our place.

    Most people come to Malapascua for Scuba Diving, and that was also the reason I came here at first. I fell in love with this place, and decided this is where I'd like to build my dream place, that is all about the journey to the "Inside" in the form of meditation, and the expression to the "Outside" in the form of art.

    We would like to promote habits we collected during my journeys, hoping it will change people's lives the way it changed mine. For example, we're going to have Meditation and yoga classes, free of charge, a Vegan Restaurant, environment cleaning and maintenance, helping the locals, educating the locals to keep Malapascua and the ocean clean from plastic and waste, Art and Music lessons with the local kids, and so much more.

    You can expect a big nice tent with mattresses and sheets, a fan, and electricity plugs. We have a western toilets and showers build all from wood and Bamboo:)

    We have a bonfire every night, and a purple acoustic guitar. Vegan Breakfast and Dinner that are included in our conditions of volunteering. (Breakfast Monday - Saturday and Dinner Monday - Friday) and discounted lunch if you don't feel like eating out. We have our own boat which we use to explore the nearby magical islands.
    Mineral water, tea and good coffee are always available free of charge.
    We have a pretty strong wifi connection, and it is also free of charge.

    During the week our schedule looks a little like this:

    7:00 Morning tea and coffee
    7:30 - 8:00 Morning Meditation\Yoga on the beach
    8:30 Vegan Breakfast
    9:15 - 9:30 morning meeting
    9:30 - 11:30 work around

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️Long Lunch Break*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️

    14:45 - 15:00 meeting
    15:00 - 17:00 Art sessions and projects
    17:15 - sunset Beach Cleanup

    We have Yoga&Meditation on Saturday, but our work schedule is from Monday to Friday :)

    We also have some activities for break time and evening time, but they change often. We do Acroyoga and Sports of all kind, Diving and Freediving, Karaoke, Martial Arts, Dancing lessons, Disco&Parties and many others.

    Our conditions - We're kindly asking our volunteers to participate in morning Meditation\Yoga Session and the Art Sessions.
    In order to be able to provide meals and all the other services for free, we kindly ask our volunteers to participate with the ingredients&bills fee . We're only asking for 300 Philippine Peso per day (about 4.5 Euros)
    We serve 2 full Vegan meals from Monday to Friday plus a breakfast on Saturday. but it's not a must to join our meals :)
    We ask for 2-3 Hours work a day, from Monday to Friday.
    We are very open minded here in our community, and everyday we have meetings where everybody decides together on the next day tasks, and who should do what.

    It's our first project, so please forgive us for maybe writing too much or too little. If you"ll send us any questions, we promise to answer as soon as we can, to the best of my ability.

    Cheers Everyone! Keep Rockin' ;)

    Johnny & Lior



    P.S
    We support divers, and have a special program for Workawayers who wish to join a diving course or go on fun dives while staying in Malapascua. I ( johnny ) am a diving instructor, and highly support diving education of any kind, since it raises the importance of keeping our oceans clean and our corals safe.

    Another thing - we are committed to reply to every message, so if you applied with us you would definitely receive a reply <3

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Well, we have a lot of local volunteers and workers that are always happy to talk and share good stories. We have a place here for the local children to come and play and draw or build dream catchers, and we make sure to always welcome them to be part of a fun creation of art :)

    We use nothing but basic tools to build things which can be quite challenging. You could learn different forms of art from the other volunteers, building skills, and a lot about the Filipino culture from the friendly locals.

    Help

    Since we are just two months into the project, there's still a lot to do.
    We'd be happy to have open minded artists who'd like to bring a little of their creation and energy into our new home. But also, there is a lot of Physical work that needs to be done. So you could join our paid workers, Learn from them how to build huts and furniture. There are some beaches that we have committed to keep clean, and a lot of gardening work to be done.
    We have a place here for anyone who'd like to help, bring whatever you would like to bring, we are open for new ideas. :)
