The Arambha Project welcomes volunteers from all over the world. The work on the 2 hectare site is of different nature and we can use a helping hand, regardless of the knowledge, ability and fitness level of the people. For 20 hours of help per week, Arambha can be you home, where you can:







Is there a minimum or maximum age for helping on the land?

Age is just a number for us, there are no age restrictions. Different ages mean different levels of knowledge and awareness and that's why we even prefer a mixed bag.

Is there a minimum or maximum length of stay?

As long as the work assignment fits and the coexistence with the other volunteers is harmonious, there is no maximum length of stay. The longer a volunteer is part of Arambha, the more insight, knowledge and responsibility he will get. The project is designed for a long time and we are happy to have people with us who want to stay medium to long term. We have set 1 month as the minimum length of stay. The reason for this is that explaining and settling in takes a certain amount of time and it is time-consuming for us to do it over and over again.

I live on the island and would like to occasionally help out, exchange ideas and learn something, is there a way to do this?

Yes, we can figure out how both sides will benefit from each other.

Do I have to take care of my own food?

Arambha has an outdoor kitchen which is fully equipped for food preparation regardless of your nutritional philosophy. The volunteers have a community fund that is used to buy food and the rest is harvested in the fields. The whole thing is either prepared individually or there is a volunteer-chef.

How do I get from nature to civilization?

You can walk to Ribeira Brava in about an hour, where you will find a farmer's market, health food store, supermarkets, pharmacies, ecological laundry, a beach, restaurants and bars. In 10 minutes you can walk to a bus stop to get to Ribeira Brava from where you can take a bus around the island.

How do I get from the airport to the project?

By bus from the airport to Funchal Bus Terminal, change there, to Ribeira Brava, change there and direction Furna, up to the Bar "o Passarinho" stop. From there it is a 10 minute walk. Alternatively, there is the possibility to rent a car at the airport.

Do I have to bring bed linen?

No, bed linen is provided, but you must bring your own towels

I would rather sleep in a tent, is that possible?

Yes, there is a place to camp.

Do I have to pay anything for my stay?

No, nothing has to be paid for it. We consider it a fair exchange to swap one's labor for a stay in a very beautiful and transforming place.

Do I need any previous knowledge to be able to help with the project?

No, no previous knowledge is required, it is much more important that the motivation is right
