  • Description


    Our project is a poultry farm, where eggs are produced for distribution and sale in different points of Santiago. Also, this farm has plantations of fruit trees and recreation spaces, which need care and maintenance. Which is what requires the greater work of the volunteer, that is, work in activities related to the production of eggs, harvest and care of the plantations and other elements of the farm.
    This farm is located in the metropolitan region, in the valley of Curacavi 40 kilometers from Santiago and 80 from Valparaiso.
    In this place I live with my family, we are 7 people in total. We have three houses, one I live with my husband and two children, the other the caretaker of the farm and his family and the last one is available for volunteers, with all the basic services and spaces for their entertainment and relaxation.
    We only expect from the volunteer, his greater disposition and proactivity to the work and care of the farm, as well as a high degree of adaptability to the required activities.

Lo cual es lo que requiere del mayor trabajo del voluntario, es decir, trabajo en las actividades relacionadas con la producción de huevos, cosecha y cuidado de las plantaciones y otros elementos de la granja.

    En este lugar vivo yo con mi familia, somos 7 personas en total. Contamos con tres casas, una la habito yo con mi marido y dos hijos, la otra el cuidador de la granja y su familia y la última está disponible para los voluntarios, contando con todos los servicios básicos y espacios para su entretención y relajo.
    Solo esperamos del voluntario, su mayor disposición y proactividad al trabajo y cuidado de la granja, así como un alto grado de adaptabilidad a las actividades requeridas.
