Program Details

We take care of our animals every day in the morning. We use to do the same with farming works. Volunteers have to complete our following program:

- Feed the chicken and change their water recipients
- Feed our rabbits
- Feed our goats
- Work with us improving our banana plantation
- Dig and plant when it would be neccesary
- Help us making our natural coffee
- Help us bringing our ideas and work to improve our gardens, planting and taking care about all of them!


Volunteers should expect great love from all of us, staff and children, and we expect the same from you! You can also help us with your ideas to improve our lives!


Activities & Shift

We shall have different shifts of work depending on your choices and the needs of our staff, maybe one day we need to dig and plant and other one it would not be neccesary. We should have a meeting in order to manage the program when you arrive to make tasks clearer.


Rules

Volunteers must be respectful with the staff and children, we need respect and love of each other in our Foundation.
