  • Description

    Description

    We are a non-profit organisation based near by Madurai in a beautiful Ecopark, Tamil Nadu (India). Our main activities are microcredit for the women, Spirulina-based nutrition program and a capacity building center for children and women.



    We are a little community here, the team is amazing and the atmosphere is ideal to work and learn about South India culture. We are on our way to build a little corner of paradise here, with a meditation center, a green park of fruit trees and medicinal plants, an organic garden, a green fitness trail, a plastic recycling unit, and a waste-free campus.
    All these projects have started already, but need motivated hands and minds to contribute!

    My name is Aurélie (French, English and Spanish speaking) and I have been working in different positions since last year. You can learn a lot here and there is soo much to do!

    Actually we are (urgently) looking for:

    (1) Waste management organizer
    His/her mission will be to manage the collection point, work on education material based on WasteLessIndia (partnership with this Auroville project), contact local scrap dealer for each material, recycle on-site, and achieve a zero-waste campus.

    (2) Community manager
    She/he can understand all our projects, visit the field, meet the teams, do through all the work done and manage our social network.

    But it could be something else of your interest, other things to do, so feel free to contact me.

    We are a dynamic team, looking for dynamic people to help us grow this place to be greener, cleaner, healthier and be a holistic center for the women and children to learn and grow.

    Looking forward to hearing from you, travelers!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Here the air is fresh and healthy, you would have access to all the facilities of the Ecopark (meditation center, green fitness train, all the park, yoga space, local cantine, wifi) and would be an integrated part of our team.

    In the morning you can work form 9 to 13h and then we have lunch all together at the cantine. In the afternoon you are free and if interested you can learn from all the other programs.

    Though this place is ideal to live and stay, if you want to know around I am happy to go with you or you could also join the field staff to visit the villages. We are more than 20 people working here, all local people expect me.

    (3) Organic agriculture
    We are planting trees and starting a kitchen garden with organic compost. So we would need people who have some knowledge of agriculture.

    (4) Children activities organizer
    We have around 10'000 children visiting Ecopark each year. We need people to plan activities for them.

    (5) Video/photos
    As a training center, we need a photographer and video maker to help us develop our didactic material. We also need to explain our work on social media.

    (6) Fundraiser
    This is always a critical point and is time consuming. We need someone to do the application and contact matching establishment for grant.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    It is a common space for volunteers with separate rooms, and mosquito net in the windows.There are 2 well-equipped bathrooms so each one has his/her "own".
    There is a kitchen with all the necessary cooking material, shelfs and storing places.

    The volunteers have made reforms so it is now very colorful confortable. It is basic but very cosy.

    Lunch is included. We have a cantine that cooks amazing vegetarian South Indian food. We eat all together at 13:30.
    We have tea time at 11:30 and 16:30, with small snacks depending on the day.

    Breakfast and dinner is your own responsibility as there is not yet a cantine service in the Ecopark. You will have all the facilities and tools to make your own food (or have what other volunteers cook!)

    Autres infos...

    To come to the Ecopark, you can take an auto (tuktuk) from Madurai, should cost you around 200 roupies. You can also take the 44 bus to Kadachanendhal, then walk 10 min or call me and I'll arrange pick-up.
