Since 2012, Sítio Folha d´Água has been offering opportunities for volunteers who want to get to know our holistic project and support us with various basic activities that contribute to its growth and smooth running.
We receive many volunteers from Brazil and all over the world in an exchange program that offers a simple existence with gratifying experiences. Volunteers are seeking a harmonious place that gives them the possibility of learning new things and allows them spiritual connection and creative expression — all of which they find here.
Volunteers actively participate in our projects, get to experience their “backstage” aspects and share in them with the greatest joy. Intercultural exchanges are an extra gift. When it’s time to say goodbye, the friends leave fond memories and take Sítio Folha d´Água’s ideals and objectives out into the rest of Brazil with them, out into the rest of the world!
The length of a stay varies between 3 and 6 weeks, to be agreed on beforehand during a period of conversations via Skype.
Necessary requirements are: being 18 years of age or older, sharing our interest in holistic activities, integrated and environmental awareness-related actions, and liking animals, especially dogs. Our little group of dogs is very sociable. They take care of us, just as we take care of them; they like to stay near us while we’re working and love affection. Some of them have special training as therapeutic dogs.
If you’re interested in participating in our volunteer and cultural/academic exchange programs, please contact us through the contact form, telling us your name, phone number, e-mail and Skype addresses, age, nationality, interests and special abilities; let us know your travel plans and in which specific area you’d like to contribute. Thanks!
