Programa detallado

Volunteers work 4½ hours in the morning on different activities, depending on your skills and our necessities at the time

We provide volunteers with comfortable accommodation in female or male dorms which include linen, hot water, and Wi Fi. There is also a cozy common area for you to relax and chat with other volunteers. You will receive three delicious vegetarian and/or meals a day during your stay.

We ask you to collaborate with us by participating in volunteer work for four and a half hours a day. The cost of the stay is approximately 8$ per day or 20.000 COP. If you stay 2 weeks or more, you will only pay about 6$ or 16.000 COP per day. As we are a monastic community, we do not generate an outside income and your donation helps us preserve our way of life.
