STARTING NEW PUSH:
Need volunteers and funding:
People needed in Nubian villages to help with creating an eco-style of living.
We are looking for any volunteers who would like to visit and stay with local families and exchange their life experiences to help the villages live in a sustainable way.
If you want to do something worthwhile and really make a lasting change to the lives and environment of the villages come and stay with us.
We need to:
Clean up the streets and creating clean public spaces.
Create ways to lower the use of plastic and promote recycling and waste management. The Nile which is close and is the soul of the Nubian people is filling up rubbish which is in turn deposited into the Mediterranean and then oceans. We need to reduce what ends up in the river.
Plant trees and create parks/gardens and maintain them.
Promote gender equality so that women can better manage their lives.
Teach English. The best way to learn is to speak English- just by being here you will do this.
We need many things and many skills so if you have a passion for something we will try to accommodate you.
Most of the Nubian people are poor but generous and kind. You will be taken care of in terms of food and a place to stay. There is Wi-Fi around and the phone signal is good. The house may be very basic to your eyes but if you can look and live beyond this then you will not find it lacking.
You will be met at Aswan train station and hosted for a night and then placed with a family or place that is suited to you.
We kindly ask you to contribute to the house you are staying with, if you can. This doesnít not have to be a lot, a few euros would make a big difference to the quality of your stay as the family will do the shopping and therefore cook and help you in any way they can.
If you canít help with money please let us know, you are still more than welcome. Your work would be the exchange.
In your free time there is the sailing on the Nile, the city of Aswan, the desert, horses, camels and good people to have a laugh with.
Please note that we move here from Italy in 2018.
