The Experience

Volunteers will supervise and coordinate activities with the Guardianes del Ambiente, persons with different mental capacities who complete compost projects, visit a psychiatric hospital, and help with eco-construction using eco-bricks (plastic bottles filled with non-degradable materials). We also host workshops teaching people how to make eco-bricks.

Sinceramente deixou muito a desejar. Não queria ter que falar isso mas creio que nós viajantes somos uma comunidade e temos que nos ajudar. O espaço não cumpriu com os requisitos básicos anunciados. A cozinha não era equipada, não tinha gás, o espaço muito desorganizado e café da manhã fraco. Além de não deixar claro quais eram as tarefas.

Viajero de turista, disfrazado voluntario....no pretenda beneficios si no ayuda en nada. Lo alojamos en pleno centro en departamento privado con baño y cocina, hasta le servimos el desayuno tres días seguidos, a cambio de NADA .Y esto no es un hotel, es una FUNDACIÓN. Lamentamos por los voluntarios genuinos que quedaron sin espacio por haber confiado en este fraude.
