Hallo Volunteer! :)

This is a project of travel for peace. We want to finish a huge peace center that many people can enjoy this place for different events. We are a peace organisation which so far arranges peace travels for Norwegian pupils, grown ups, has a well-fare project in Africa and wants to extend it's offer. Therefore we need our peace center.

Our vision for the peace center is to be a collecting point for future work on peace and human rights.

The old building (built 1911 - 1917) was a lung-hospice before. We are about to renovate it. Some rooms are already completed. In a few rooms there are only some details missing and others have to be renovated entirely. We have one skilled person but he can't of course do the work only by himself. Therefore we need you.

We want to finish some parts until August (and some parts later on), so the building and the surroundings can be used for grill-parties, as a hosting place for travelers and so on.
We really need people that want to work and do identify with our vision. We had some people before which didn't really came for work and that is why the peace center still is not completed. So please do not contact us if you are afraid of working.

I am a volunteer myself. I just finished studies in Germany. I came to Grendi on the 15th of July and with me came some really good and nice helpers. It works great so far, therefore I am looking for more fun people that can help us to work on the peace center!

The nature around the peace center is just fascinating. It is close to the water with a small sandy beach.

We have bicycles here that you can use as well as fishing rodes and tents. You can go hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, canoeing, rafting and so on. We also have two guitars here, some drums and a piano.

Check out the pictures to get a better impression of the place where we are.
We can arrange to pick you up either in Oslo or Kristiansand (which would be better for us)


I am happy to see you here!
