Greetings HelpX Community!
WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS TO COME TO GRAN CANARIA FROM MAY TO SEPTEMBER
we are in a valley called Barranco de Tasarte, 1 km from the beach.
we would like to find a person or a couple or a family, interested in taking care of our house, water our few plants in the garden and feed 2 cats and 1 dog.
From next May untill June, and if you like to be more, can be untill October.
If you write Blablabla and Sumus on youtube you will see our place.
We offer accomodation, but if you will like to agree in having some possible reservation we can share the incomes at 50%.
write to email@example.com to have more info.
We are looking for volunteers for:
- Tasarte, Gran Canaria, Spain (Guesthouse)
- Faro, Portugal (Guesthouse)
- Bari, Italy (Bed n Breakfast)
We are looking also for good web developers for our work in progress website.
Volunteers will be asked to work 5h a day 5 days a week. It’s flexible, some days you may need to work more, sometimes less. 1 month minimum stay.
In exchange we offer a bed, simple breakfast and dinner. Lunch is not provided.
Basic Internet connection is also available so you can connect with friends and family.
Flexibility is really important.
Work starts at 10:30 am and everyone is asked to do at least 1h30 hours of cleaning. Then there are different tasks during the day (watering, feeding animals, laundry, reception, showing people around the hostel, helping making dinner, washing up after, ect)
What the location offers volunteers:
Tasarte is beautifully located overlooking the ocean and is a peaceful place away from touristic areas. This is a secluded getaway spot for those looking for self-reflection and personal growth. There are many hikes all around the island and several towns you can reach by bus to fulfill your exploration desires. The weather is constant Spring-like conditions so this is ideal for those desiring to escape the winter conditions in the Northern Hemisphere. We are 800m from the beach, 7km to the closest supermarket. Tasarte is a small village located on the southwest area of the Gran Canaria Island. There are buses to Puerto de Mogán and from there you can connect to the main city of Las Palmas, amongst other areas.
/Faro, Pt, works from June to October.
We are still looking for a big house with land and water. we have many contacts and from 2016 we will start new projects.
Bari, It, works from May to September.
We are still looking for a big house with land and water. we ound 2 wonderful locations in Apulia (Puglia) and from 2016 we will start new projects.
Back to Gran Canaria, now >>
The first week is a trial week, we offer a bed in a dormitory, and teach you how everything works, and at the end of the week, we see together if you would like to stay on.
Volunteers must speak basic Spanish and fluent English or fluent Spanish and basic English. Any other languages is a plus.
If you have your driving licence and are over 25 it's even better!
For all locations >>
Secondary duties will be associated with the NGO. We are in need of Web Development, Grant Proposal writing/submission, Social Networking, and an Outreach Project to find Global Community Support. As there are not always guests to be checked-in or rooms/areas to be cleaned/managed, the remainder of any hours leading to 25/week will be spent on the NGO. This ensures you are never without duties to complete your exchange of hours but the living areas will always be your main focus.
This volunteer experience is for individuals wanting to live simple lives in a simple area. You can indulge in the city life by using your days off to travel into Las Palmas as BlaBlaBla has an exchange with local hostels on the island for our volunteers to generally stay for 5 euros for a dorm bed (with availability).
This help exchange is meant to provide for your basic necessities while offering the opportunity to help positively change the world by becoming part of an organization seeking Self-Sustainable Communities through Environmental-based and Basic-Needs projects.
Thank you for your interest and consideration, please contact us for questions or volunteer requests.
