  • Description

    Description

    We are an organization, which works with trafficking survivors. We are recently relegating an organic farm, which will also serve as a future educational and therapeutic space for the survivors of trafficking and others. On the farm we will grow potatoes, cereals such as oats, barley, wheat and quinoa. We have animals such as cows, sheep, guinea pigs and we will have pigs, chickens and 2 horses for the therapeutic work. We are starting projects like permaculture, planting trees, recycling water and much more. The main work now consists of taking care of our animals in the morning and in the afternoon, establishing an vegetable garden, establishing a seeding station for trees, construction, repair and installation.

    Spanish skills would be great and we prefer volunteers who could dedicate at least 6 weeks to our project.

    Somos una organización que trabaja con sobrevivientes de la trata. Recientemente estamos relegando una granja orgánica, que también servirá como un futuro espacio educativo y terapéutico para los sobrevivientes de la trata y otros. En la granja cultivaremos papas, cereales como avena, cebada, trigo y quinua. Tenemos animales como vacas, ovejas, cuyes y tendremos cerdos, gallinas y 2 caballos para el trabajo terapéutico. Estamos comenzando proyectos como permacultura, plantando árboles, reciclando agua y mucho más. El trabajo principal ahora consiste en cuidar a nuestros animales por la mañana y por la tarde, establecer un huerto, establecer una estación de siembra de árboles, construcción, reparación e instalación.

    Las habilidades en español serían excelentes y preferimos voluntarios que puedan dedicar al menos 6 semanas a nuestro proyecto.
