My first experience on Worldpackers and Oveja Verde set the bar high. They respect the requested 4 hours per day are open to any project ideas that volunteers suggest. This is a great base camp for exploring Araucanía on weekends, and the volunteers here can give some great tips about where to go and how to arrive. I came with the main objective of improving my Spanish, and I absolutely did thanks to the generosity of the folks here and the social atmosphere. The only negatives were that the bathroom and small kitchen got messy easily, though this changed when more volunteers arrived to help.

I had a wonderful time at Ovejaus. The tasks were very open-ended and you could work at your own pace.

One of the very best volunteering opportunities that you could find on WorldPackers. Volunteering here feels so rewarding. Everything is very organised and exactly as described. The people are great and they quickly welcome you into their family and makes you at real ease. The are plenty of tasks you could choose that could make a social impact. Oveja Verde is the heart of Victoria with plenty of things to do. The stay is comfortable, the food is great and there is fast WiFi on the property as well. Highly recommended.

Los miembros de la oveja verde siempre están dispuestos a ayudarte en lo que necesites... Lo recomiendo 100%, y más si te gustan las artes y conciencia medioambiental.
