THE PROJECT

This ecological project is focused on sustainable development and improvement of the environment in Mexico. There are 2 demonstration centres, one in the State of Mexico and one in the State of Oaxaca. The objective of the organization is to contribute to education and sustainable development, through integral programs which will promote self-sufficiency and self-development, especially in rural and extreme poverty areas.


YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER

Ecological volunteers working for this project will be assisting in the ecological center where training and schooling is given to the inhabitants on how to become self-sufficient in themes such as energy and water and how to build ecological homes. You will be dealing with a number of tasks, such as food processing, solar cooking, organic gardening, animal care and kitchen work. You will also be involved in marketing and promotion tasks such as giving workshops, making promotion- or business plans and so on.

For those volunteers interested in sustainable development projects, help is needed in poor rural communities where you will be involved in building homes, building dry toilets, installing biological gardens, reforesting, making compost, and so on.

Note that the above are just examples of your volunteer work in Mexico. Your exact responsibilities vary on a day to day basis according to the needs of a particular ongoing program.


WHAT THE PROJECT NEEDS

If you would like to work at this volunteer project in Mexico, you would need to commit for a period of at least 4 weeks. It is not absolutely necessary to speak Spanish; however, if your Spanish level is at least basic or intermediate, you will be able to communicate more easily with the local staff members and the inhabitants. It will definitely make your experience more enjoyable. Should you not speak any Spanish yet, we can help you to book a Spanish course in Mexico before starting your volunteer program.

The local volunteer organization is looking for flexible, creative and enthusiastic volunteers with an interest in other cultures. Special requirements for this project are an interest in ecology and sustainable development, and preferably a background in areas such as architecture/design, agriculture, biology, environmental engineering, and so on. You should be willing to help out in a variety of maintenance- and construction tasks and have good organizational and creative skills.
