    Description

    Hi, there! I'm Abraham, from Spain.

    Like most of us I've spent years wandering around different countries. And not long ago I finally decided that Colombia was the right place for me to do what I wanna do. I'm a primary school teacher, now trying to build up my future home and an educational project in this amazing country.

    After finding the right place I decided to buy a small piece of land in one the many Caribbean islands Colombia has. As I've already said, my goal is to build a small house which will be both my place and everyone's place. I want to create a cultural space on the island, giving locals the opportunity to have access to books, musical instruments, new food recipes and a international environment surrounded by nature. Since I believe in a FREE educational system, activities will always be free of charge for locals.

    The island is such an incredible place for nature lovers. It is only touristy in peak season. The rest of the year it is rare to find people from the outside. Not a single car, and just a couple of bikes, make this island the perfect place to enjoy the sound of the sea. You'll definitively love it!

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The Colombian Caribbean sea is a place of cultural exchange. There were indigenous people, and then the Europeans and Africans came to stay. Later on, a migratory movement from the Middle East also brought many people from countries like Lebanon and Turkey. It is a unique place on the Colombian coast, still not shaped by tourism. You will have the chance to fall in love with an island you will never want to leave. Let nature and Colombians make you fall in love again.

    Help

    Since I am starting from scratch I will need different types of help depending on the stage the project is in:

    1. DIY: I will need some help to build the house.

    2. Teachers and artists: we need help teaching kids between 5 and 15 y.o. (teaching experience is a must). Writing and reading are some of the skills that will be taught.


    It will be a maximum of 25 hours a week with 2 days off.
