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:
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.
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.
Yes, we can figure out how both sides will benefit from each other.
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.
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.
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.
No, bed linen is provided, but you must bring your own towels
Yes, there is a place to camp.
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.
No, no previous knowledge is required, it is much more important that the motivation is right
We live in a time with rapidly changing conditions and what was considered safe for a long time is now at least carries a question mark. Whether real estate, stocks, physical metals, crypto currencies, where the journey is going is not exactly known. It seems like two parallel societies are developing. One strives for progress at all costs, wants to advance technologically as quickly as possible, the other chooses the "magical path" and tries to preserve and improve old knowledge and tradition. Regardless of which of the two directions you belong, both need healthy food. In the foreseeable future, we hardly will be able to avoid eating, which is why the money is well invested here. We are working on increasing the size of the project, technically improving it, protecting species, working with really sustainable building materials, promoting natural energy generation, learning fundamental things for children and finding ways to support people with health problems.
