Program Details

This IS a volunteering project we ALL make part of and we will treat you as family here in our HOME-BAKERY. We are in this world to help each other. You help me and I help you. I help you and you help me. Then we become friends, family, humans!

We are located in Praia de Itapeva, Torres - Rio Grande do Sul. A wonderful place for lovers of the sea, nature and extreme sports. We are very close to a beach known for its natural beauty, and many other beaches. In addition you can enjoy or better know a type of healthy and functional bakery. Inclusive you can learn how to make our breads and cakes and take it to your life!


Activities & Shift

The work is 5 hours a day/5 days a week.
Usually from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.(stoping one hour for lunch).

Basically it is helpings us on gardening and cleaning in general, cooking, cleaning the kitchen after meals, playing with the kids, building something in the yard, etc...

We need someone responsable, respectful and PROACTIVE to help keeping the house clean and tidy. You have to like children and animals. If you choose to volunteer with us, you should keep in mind that the little ones require a lot of love, playfulness and patience.


Rules

Sadly we prefer the volunteer to stay for ONE WEEK only.

DRUGS AND ALCOHOL ARE FORBIDEN during volunteering and inside the house.

The place where the volunteer slept and the toilet used by him or her must be cleaned on the same day of departure, before leaving.

The volunteer needs to be PROACTIVE and show real interest on helping... We don't like people standing in the middle of the way "just wondering" during theire volunteering time, while the family is working hard. We will try always to be honest and objective in communicating and assigning tasks but we'll be always open to new ideas and REAL actions.
