    Our Mission

    Ours is a self-sustainable traveller’s community. It started as a dream to have a place in Goa for travellers, created by travellers, self-sustaining, and basically an island of bliss in this ocean of a city. Located at a beautiful building in a safe neighbourhood of the city, a little distance from the airport and railway stations, and closer to serene beach. We are trying to build something amazing.

    With a few long term residents, and travellers coming and going all the time, the place oscillates between feeling like a busy travel junction and a communal home. The community operated kitchen feeds 10-20 mouths every day while maintaining and upgrading the building all the while.

    Our focus is on creating a creative conscious hub in anjuna Goa made up of artists, musicians, travellers and adventurers.

    We currently have a hostel with private guest rooms on the ground which act as a source of revenue for the community. However, as the community becomes more self-sufficient we intend to convert the dormitory rooms into something meaningful.

    We’d love to host and connect with like-minded people and travellers who’d want to be a part of, or help shape, this effort and help take it towards its aim

    Create Learning Environment !!

    Creating is one of the most fulfilling things we can do together as humans. That's why we invite and encourage those with a skill to share it with other guests, creating a learning economy that has so far yielded some amazing outcomes. Trying something new and discovering an untapped talent within is just as rewarding as passing your passion for art, music, dance or culture to someone else. From soap making to impromptu jam sessions, each of our locations aims to offer a space and materials to facilitate workshops.

    - Choose Your time
    - Flexibility in working with other volunteers
    - Learning nature
    - Sharing your talent
    - A clear mind, who wants to learn and thinks while he or she works.
    - Help people in decision making by helping or showing them a path.
    - Honesty, since it is a main challenge which you will face with yourself and others.
    - Help yourself and other people on decision making which you or they will earn by following their intuition.
    - Alien commitment
    - Love in a way that you will only judge yourself to grow and not judge others by their way of living.
    - Patience - In the way you think of the future.

    Our day doesn’t start very early, and doesn't end at very late.
