We are in a big need of volunteers from August/September. So if you are ready to use 2-3 months in our place to do gardening and cooking , we will be most grateful!
We are a private school, specialized in preparing and educating volunteers for development projects in Africa and India. The school is situated at 80 Km South of Copenhagen, a small town called Faxe – in nice surroundings near the sea.
The school was founded in 1994 and has since then educated students for action in the Southern part of Africa.
At the same place we also run a care home and a day school for youngsters with special needs.
The school has an absolute no-alcohol, no-drugs policy which also applies to guests :)
The school and it´s guests have access to a small fitness center, sports hall, music room, art room and table-tennis.
The school is run by us who are here, students and teachers, which means we shop, cook, clean, maintain the buildings and meet challenges together.
This also means, that when you are part of our community for a while, you will be running the school together with us.
We need to people to take care of our garden. We have a big park with fruit trees, berries and garden farm, where we produce food for our kitchen.
Then we need people in our kitchen, who will work with our chef cook, preparing healthy meals for our volunteers and Day school Children at our School Center. You will cook lunch for 20-40 people. We cook Scandinavian food, international recipes, Vegetarian and vegan food.
Minimum 1 month. Preferably 1-3 months
In your time-of (depending upon if it is winter or summer) you can:
1) You can go sightseeing in Copenhagen and other places of interest in Denmark. There are also many possibilities to enjoy the nature in the forest and birdlife.
2) You can swim in the sea, do trekking in the nature. Bicycling, fishing (fishing card needed), play volleyball outside, photograph amazing nature and much, much more.....
