  • Help


    Our community has very beautiful natural landscapes and is full with wild animals, but is in desperate need of clean up projects and education in sustainable farming and living. There are many unemployed people who just need a little help started something for them and their families, they are all willing and able to do anything and do it with a smile. We have our own 'Rastarant' where we could always use some extra hands. If you are a musician or have any special talents in entertainment we can really use your help. We also need people who can teach language , and sustainable living techniques to help prepare them for the tourist who will be coming to their village.
