We are a local NGO that operates in the Amalfi Coast (UNESCO Site), engaged in projects about environmental protection, sustainable development, youth, local traditions, international volunteering, natural building and so on.

Our office is in the village of Tramonti, surrounded by nature, located in an area of around 3000 m with a nice garden, some cultivated terraces, camping area and our old barn which is becoming an ecobuilding, insulated with natural techniques (straw, clay, lime, canes) and with an outdoor eco-kitchen.

We are looking for people to help us with some practical jobs, such as to trim the grass around, to collect wood, to complete the electric system and many other "maintenance" activities (fix the fences and wooden steps, help an old lady in the garden, pick fruits and herbs, etc.). Sometimes we might even need help on some other local/international projects with volunteers or to create media content for documenting the activities of the association for communication purposes.
We are content to receive help for at least 4 to 6 hours per day, 5 days a week, depending on the things that needs to be done. Sometimes it is possible that there is more work, sometimes there is none. According to the type of activity we might host people for a period of 1 or 2 weeks.

Helpers will sleep in the attic of the office, while kitchen and toilet are just downstairs, with a lot of space and wifi. In the ecobuilding (which is just outside the office) there are showers with hot water.

The Amalfi Coast area is quite famous and considered to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. Nearby on the coast you can visit the towns of Amalfi, Ravello and Positano but it is also possible to reach easily the famous Isle of Capri. One hour from here there are also the archaeological sites of Pompei and Ercolano, and also the city of Naples is within reach.
