  • Description

    Description

    My name is Ivone and I'm one of the founders of an holistic education project located in a village 12 Km from Vila Verde, 12 km from Ponte de Lima and 20 km from Braga, Portugal. A small group of children gets together every day for a learning experience about the world, nature, maths, languages, etc., and themselves. The educators are teachers, parents and volunteers and are learning as much as the children about relationships, life and education.
    We need help in our work with children, vegetarian cooking, gardening, website, social media, video creation, taking care of a land we are buying to build an eco community/retreat centre,
    etc..

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They will be integrated in an holistic education project in Portugal where children are respected, in a natural and beautiful environment.

    We expect that this exchange might benefit our project as much as it benefits the volunteer, becoming an experience of true learning and sharing. We are a community, a "soul family".
