  • Description


    We are a Colombian couple, Victoria and Felipe, who are creating a recycling culture in the community of Urabà in Antioquia, the best corner of America for improving the environment. We are working with some local canners in the surrounding areas and with local people. Our goal is to teach to local people how to recycle in the easiest way, giving them some benefits of our project and the opportunity to reduce their waste.
    We are a young company trying to make the difference by creating an ecological community in an area that has no recycling awareness and has many needs.
    We need your help to raise awareness for our project so we can share our ideas with the world to develop the recycling culture here, and to improve the living standards of our community.
    Our mission is to exchange knowledge for recycling.
    The place is located in a small village called Carepa, 5 hours away from Medellìn.
    We are creating an ecologic community, be part of it!

  • Hébergement


    There is a shared bathroom with other volunteers.
    The house is in Carepa as is the workplace.
    Food is not included, the idea is to buy food and cook together (sharing the cost 50-50), this is a good way to share specialties of our Countries! A good thing, Victoria has a farm where we take a lot lot of fruits, eggs and vegetables for free.
    We also set up a brief schedule for the cleaning of the house, its only things like sweeping or mopping but is important to keep our resting place clean and has to be distrubuted fairly.
    We have internet at our home.
    *****Please note, we are now charging a fee of 8 US Dollars per week per person, this contributes to the maintenance of the accomodation and any left over goes to the project, for example, paying the workers*****
    By the way, we have 2 lovely cats...
