  • Descripción


    Minimum stay for volunteers 4 to 6 weeks.

    Our project has various objectives: self sustainability, organic agriculture, animal shelter, horse guided empowerment, a retreat center and a production of native herbal products.

    We are located at about 4000 meters high, which means that everything is much more intense. Acclamation of beforehand in Puno is obligatory. Physical and mental strength is needed in this place. During the day the sun can be very strong but once the it goes down it gets very cold! We need help from people with discipline, willing to work and with a sense of responsibility.

    Auto-sustainability & organic agriculture
    Being already independent on water and electricity, we aspire to be as much as posible independent on food by the next 5 years. We have a piece of land where we can cultivate potatoes and veggies from the region and oats and alfalfa for the animals. We are experimenting and researching to cultivate organic.

    Animal shelter
    We currently take care of eleven horses, two Alpacas, four sheeps, chicken, rabbits, a cat and 3 dogs. With our shelter we want to provide a safe space for our animals, a place where they can live as natural as possible. We are an animal shelter; we do not ride our horses. We mainly do ground work and would like to prepare our horses to be able to work with children and help in therapy and coaching.

    Retreat center
    We are creating a special space for horse guided empowerment, familiy constelation with horses, meditation, yoga and traditional Aymara ceremonies and earth offerings.

    Production of native herbal products
    We are preparing to offer herbal tea, herbal esences, and more...

    Our vision is to connect humans with nature and life, to trust again and feel the wholeness and holyness of every being.

    Children are welcome to play freely and families can enjoy the landscape.

    We are a family with a 3 years old child, we would really love to have an exchange with other families with small children from 4 to 10 years....

    We are living in a stone house made with material from the region. We are 1km from the village of Chucuito. From the house, we have a direct view of the Titicaca Lake and Chucuito. The horses, sheeps, alpacas, chicken and the dogs are roaming freely around us. You will share a room with maximum 1 other volunteer. We have a separate volunteer’s kitchen and bathroom. There is no heating so it can get very cold at night and no WIFI! We have limited electricity with solar power and limited hot water thanks to a thermal heater. On cloudy days there can be no hot water! We offer hot lunch 5 days a week.
