    Hi, we are Franco, Roxana and our little son Felix, 2 and a half years old, a family from Puerto Ingeniero Ibañez, in the Aysén-Chile region, is located in front of General Carrera Lake, the second largest after Titicaca, near Cerro Castillo National Park and the Patagonia National Park, 30 minutes from the southern road, our house is located between the Patagonian forests, lagoons and mountain ranges giving us a privileged place where it is very easy to disconnect from the modern world and return to contrast with the nature that surrounds us.
    We have a Camping and a Hostel in pto. Ibañez that we want to improve for the summer season, we have many projects that we are working on, that is why our time for these arrangements is not enough, we also have a field in Lapparent Lake 18 kilometers from pto. Ibañez in which we want to build a small family house, but we have to clean the place to begin construction.
    We have experience working with volunteers, since in 2017 and 2018 we worked on the construction of Path and fence arrangements in Lapparent Lake with a large number of volunteers, we liked the experience and we want to return to work with this system because they had an excellent result and an incredible advance, we are super friendly, we like to exchange experiences, we have knowledge of basic English, we want to improve our English and that of our son, we have no problem communicating we can learn together.

    The works would mainly be:
    -Organize camping for its operation delimit areas, cleaning and construction of bathrooms.
    -Improve the facade of the hostel with gardens and entrance fence.
    -Remove branches and firewood from the native forest of Lengas, Coihues, Ñires in the Lapparent field to build.
    -Small basic English classes for Felix.
    -Management of social networks

    The work is 5 days a week and 5 hours a day, in their free time they can visit the different attractions such as Ibañez river jump, surrounding lagoons, sighting of flamingos, swans, ducks, huanacos, among wild animals that exist, climbing in Roca, since in Puerto Ibañez there are countless routes all equipped, they can do kayaking and fishing, we have kayaks that we will provide to our volunteers for their free use, they can also track and explore landscapes.

    Answer us in Spanish thanks.
