The Experience

For this work and circumstances, it suits mostly male volunteers because of the physically-demanding work. Ladies who are in a big urge to find a place to stay have to know that the circumstances are not very easy and that one has to be willing to accept renovation surroundings due to the re-construction state of the house. The works are diverse and we have a garden filled with construction materials that need to be rearranged.

I’ll admit I’m not perfect. Now, Maida is a really kind and sweet woman who just wants her volunteers to feel good, but her greatest quality is also her greatest weakness. She tries so hard that the volunteers feel good, that she stops taking care of herself, making her tired and with a lot of pain. This makes her feel not good. When your host is not feeling good, it’s hard for them to create a “feel good” environment for everyone else. Advice: stick to what is said in the web page and make no deals in word with her (she will forget or modify the deal). More details, private message. Good luck

My biggest mistake was to give in to Santiagos constant asking to go traveling during the time he was supposed to be helpeing after a free weekend. He wanted to leave because he didn't get along with the two other helpers.
None of this was my change but O tried to avoid stress for Santiago and they all left one week earlier not being able to make the agreement work.
I was not asked and my schedule was not respected.
So please Santiago, keep your own commitments and don't give others advises.
That was exactly why the other two volunteers didn't get along with you. You were the youngest of all of us but you felt like leading the work without being experienced in any of the tasks.
Please advise yourself in the future.

literal un hogar lejos de casa, maida es una persona muy especial, piri (mi perrita) y yo nos sentimos muy bien recibidos y no solo eso, me alegra decir que tengo una gran amiga en esta parte del mundo y un motivo para regresar.
ella es comprensible, casismatica y mil cosas mas. aprendi mucho de ella y estoy seguro de que lo seguire haciendo por que ella es de ese tipo de personas que quieres mantener cerca.
muchas gracias por esta primer experiencia como voluntario.

Maida es un mujer muy especial es directa inteligente, fue una lastima que mis habilidades no son las que ella necesita para continuar su proyecto, pero ella me recibió con los brazos abiertos, mostrándome una nueva forma de ver al mundo.
espero utilizar lo que aprendí con ella.

una experiencia excelente llegue como un voluntario y me fui con una nueva amiga.

dios te llene de bendiciones Maida.

Mi experiencia en lo de Maida fué maravillosa!
Fué mi primer voluntariado y realmente lo pasé muy bien.
Maida es una gran persona que siempre está pensando en el bienestar de los demás.
Me sentí siempre muy acompañada y cuidada por ella, preocupandose de que me sienta bien.
Entre nosotras nació una gran amistad que seguro va a durar por el resto de nuestras vidas.
Si ella me acepta volvería nuevamente.
Gracias!! Muchas Gracias Maida!!!
