About the workproject

We need 4 volunteers

We are starting a volunteers program in Yucatan and need your help to make the best experience. You will be living and working mostly in Casa LAN which is the autosustainable volunteers house we are building in Merida, Yucatan. The tasks will go from gardening, cooking and some construction tasks. But mainly you will be helping to develop the whole volunteer experience. We will be visiting Mayan communities in which we are currently working and develop the program for those areas as well. You will get to know the Melipona Bee, the mayan house and gastronomy. We are located 36km from the beach and we are surrounded by incredible natural, cultural and touristic activities.

Hi! I am Diego and I am starting this new project called "Casa LAN" following my dream of a more sustainable future and enjoying the process of it. I have lived abroad for some years and had the opportunity to travel to a few places around the world. This gave me an open minded and problem solving mind orientation. I believe that bringing fresh minds from around the world can allow us to bring solutions to local problems - thinking globally and acting locally. I enjoy sports, travelling, eating and specially having new adventures and challenges.
