    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We believe that if you study business/ administration/ power systems or something related this will be a good opportunity to put some knowledge to the test.

    You can also practice/ learn some German or Tagalog with us if that’s something that interests you.

    It’s also a great opportunity to travel around the islands and enjoy their beauty.

    You will get to experience life in the Philippines from both a local & foreign perspectives, rural life and being outdoors as much as you like!

  • Help


    Right now we are looking for help with the planning and installation of solar panels (whether on the rooftop or a dedicated area near the house). This is the first time we work on this kind of project so for the most part, help is needed for the initial studies and planning. If the same person can help us with execution, that would be great.
