You will be based in our Volunteer ‘Big House’, a shared accommodation with five same -sex rooms each with two beds. Here you will enjoy breathtaking views of Tofo bay, as well as easy access on foot to the Foundation offices and the restaurant. Your Project Coordinators reside within the lodge and are on call 24 hours a day. The lodge is open from 7 AM until 11 PM and has 24h security on site, with further staff members who are always happy to help.

You have up to three meals a day which you order from the menu of our beachfront restaurant. Somedays we may also decide to BBQ on the beach. All food is cooked fresh each day, and is sustainably sourced. A lot of our staff and volunteers are vegetarians or vegans, and so we have a wide variety of options for everyone. One thing is for sure, you will eat well everyday in paradise.
