We are currently going through a transition period and due to cuts in funding, we are finding much difficulty in continuing our services to the community. Our current goal is to generate funding independently here on site. We seek to renovate and decorate a number of buildings for using them as guest rooms. From here our guests could explore the beautiful Wayanad region, take part in daily yoga and/or meditation classes, Ayurveda and massage therapy or simply just enjoy relaxing amongst the tranquility that nature offers here.

Volunteering needs

Volunteers with good marketing and advertisement skills for our clay jewelry shop.
Film makers for assisting in our projects such as solar home lighting systems, etc.

Yoga/meditation trainers to provide classes in our center.

We are humbly requesting help from website makers to host the website.

We are seeking long-term volunteers for a period of 1 - 6+ months to help with our construction/renovation projects:
*We would most welcome skilled construction workers/teams and carpenters to help finish constructing a building situated on the site. We have plans drawn up by an architect to construct this space into seven guest rooms with bathrooms and a communal area. This will require a lot of work to complete. Therefore, we have a preference for those that can commit to a longer stay. The building is currently partially constructed consisting of outer walls and inner support posts only. We need to finish the structural construction and install electrics, windows and plumbing.
*Painters, decorators or furniture makers to renovate the dormitoriesí walls and furniture and to decorate the on-site Ayurveda centre.
*Volunteers with skills in gardening and/or landscaping to help us develop a small fruit and vegetable garden. We plan to turn some unused land into a vegetable garden which volunteers can maintain throughout the year.
*Volunteers to manage and help grow our internet presence: We need help in advertising and marketing our holiday accommodation and ayurvedic packages.

We need someone with good written English and IT skills to help managing emails, accommodation requests from our listed websites, creating publications, Facebook updates and possibly a blog.

Another future project includes the construction of a number of tree houses around the grounds that will offer a unique stay experience. We ask for anybody with experience in treehouse design that can offer their knowledge and ideas on how to bring this plan into fruition to get in touch.

We also very much welcome short-term volunteers to help with more general, ongoing jobs and lighter work such as maintenance of the grounds, small painting and gardening jobs, photography, Facebook/blog support and building/arranging a library, shop, lounge and communal area. Unfortunately at this time, we cannot provide short-term volunteers with free accommodation and food but can offer them at a discounted rate.

If you have any skills that are not listed above but you feel you might help us, bring our plans into fruition, please donít hesitate to contact us, as there might be something that can be arranged for you.
