  • Descrição

    Descrição

    Welcome to our Community Center, a 96 acre plot of tropical forest. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to public health in rural Bolivia. The center offers service learning opportunities for university students from abroad, and multiple day workshops for local village leaders, elected authorities, health care workers, and community health promoters. We are in the early stage of development, therefore our focus is on soliciting groups from abroad, constructing and maintaining the grounds and cabins with cleaning as needed. The center provides lodging in rustic cabins, with homemade vegetarian meals. Volunteers work in teams of two, to prepare the main meal of the day (lunch) for our normal weekday team (6 people). The outdoor classrooms connect the participants with the natural surroundings. We are focused on creating model systems for a variety of demonstrations including, water filtration, organic gardens, medicinal plant gardens, walking trails, dry composting latrines, and more. These models inform and inspire visitors to implement the model in their community, to improve the quality of health and disease prevention in their home and village, cultivating a culture of sharing and collaborating.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Bolivia is an amazingly diverse country. We are located in the tropical forest, surrounded by trees and animals. It is a peaceful refuge where you can reflect and focus, but also continuously learn from nature. The incredible diversity of animals, insects, plants, and trees provides you with the opportunity to observe and learn. Your time here will be filled with opportunities to experiment, build, garden, and put ideas into action. Our project is located 12 km from Buena Vista, a quaint town that has preserved its traditions.

    If volunteers are interested in participating in community projects (workshops, presentations, dry latine construction, etc) we coordinate with our staff to allow volunteers to travel to sites to see how our model systems are implemented. It is a great way to experience rural Bolivia and learn more about our organization.

    The ideal volunteers have knowledge, experience, patience, and creativity in organic gardening and permaculture. We have several garden areas (vegetables, orchard, medicinal plants and herbs) that need weeding, planting, harvesting, and natural, organic pesticides. These volunteers will help churn the compost, prepare seedlings in the plant nursery, and fertilize the orchard, as well as plant trees around the property.

    We also welcome "generalist" volunteers and those who have other areas of expertise (art, murals, mosaics, engineers, teachers, carpenters, builders, and much more!) Volunteers are invited to help with the following tasks: gardening (planting, harvesting, weeding), general maintenance (repairs, painting, power washing), nature path maintenance (raking, clearing branches, repairing bridges),carpentry, implementation of model systems (organic agriculture, water purification, renewable energy). PREPARATION FOR ARRIVING GROUPS MAY INCLUDE CLEANING OF CABINS AND BATHROOMS, MEAL PREPARATION AND SERVING MEALS, AND DISHWASHING.
    We are a vegetarian Center and provide locally grown ingredients for communal cooking in our large, well equipped kitchen.

    This workaway experience is for volunteers who are looking for more than just a place to sleep, eat, and work. We focus on teamwork, positive energy, and exchanging/sharing experiences. This is a community for people who are seeking to connect with nature, themselves, and the other people sharing this space.

    We rely greatly on the work of volunteers to keep our training center running smoothly. Any cancellations to our agreed upon on volunteering will affect our programs. Please consider this before applying.

    The center is located 12 km from the town of Buena Vista, down a dirt road. It is a fairly remote location with limited access to phone and internet. We arrange transportation to and from town for purchasing supplies. It is a humid, tropical environment with lots of insects and wild animals. We are located near the Amboro National Park, where you can hike along rivers and waterfalls, see tropical birds and wildlife, and camp. Buena Vista is a 25 minute drive away; it is a quaint, traditional town that offers a beautiful shade filled plaza, restaurants (with wifi), bars, a local produce market, locally produced cacao, coffee, and citrus and frequent cultural events.

    We welcome volunteers who appreciate nature, animals, and are conscious of their impact on the environment. We value honesty, respect, and careful use of resources, creativity, and coordinated teamwork. The Buena Vista market provides fresh local fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy products, bread, and dry goods. We shop twice a week at the market, to keep the kitchen stocked with the ingredients for you to prepare your own meals. The kitchen is fully equipped. Shared meals are encouraged. We are vegetarians and we ask that you refrain from the consumption of meat at our facility.

    The phone and internet access is restricted (due to available signal, not by choice!). We built a 30 meter high antenna tower to get the phone/internet signal, which works in the reception/office area only. You can purchase a modem stick (Tigo or Entel) for $40 USD to use for your computer, or simply use phone cards for your smartphone.
    There are motorcycle taxis ($4 USD one way) to and from the town of Buena Vista (12km, 25 minutes). We have a truck for coordinating trips into town and other communities nearby.
