    Volunteers are also expected to help me with tourists doing translations and also explaining about the region and the tours.
    There`s also some work to be done with some water dams that have being abandoned for a while and are now full of sand that must be shoveled away to store again water from the rainy season for ours animals.

    We start in the morning by breakfast around 8:30 am at 9am we start work. We need our volunteers to reply to emails in english and help with webpage editing for example the facebook and work away pages for our business. We then eat lunch and go back to work on the internet. Some times volunteers will be required to spend the night in our desert camp the work includes, helping with tourists/ cleaning/ preparing food etc. You will never do more than 4 hours of work per day.
