About the local hosting organizationOur local partners are the Nadoba conservatory responsible for managing the site, the village development committee (VDC), the club for FAGAD children on the site and the ministry responsible for culture.

About the volunteer workTheme : Creation of a bio garden to provide a better life on the site This project targets the creation a bio garden on this site, which will allow the production of vegetables and teach the youth to create a garden at their home. A way of eliminating the problems linked to food products on the site. Work to be done :  Collect manure, ashes and organic waste from the village;  Teach how to make organic fertilizer;  Initiation to bio agriculture on the banks of a water barrage;  Sensibilise parents to the production of vegetables and bio foodstuffs;  Sensibilise pupils in primary and secondary education to the production and the consumption of vegetables, especially bio.

FAGAD provide mattresses. The food is Togolese, African and European. All volunteers attend to tasks and can be assisted by local volunteers and ladies in the village

About the project locationLocation : Nadoba, Koutammakou. World patrimony of UNESCO Koutammakou, in the region of the Batammariba is 500 kms² and is composed of 4 cantons: Nadoba ( Kounadowou ), Koutougou, Warengo et Agbonté. Nadouba is some 620 kms from Lomé, in the north of Togo. The site was classified as a element in the World Patrimony of UNESCO in 2004. Benin is 4 kms from Nadoba. The Batammariba are farmers and hunters. They live in houses of clay bricks in the foem of a little castle, Tata, based on a special form of architecture. The language spoken by the Batammariba is called Ditammari which, by way of deformation, has become Tamberma. The prinipal belief of the Batammariba is animism. Fetishes, which they adore and are to be found at the entry to the Tatas, are in diverse forms. In accordance with the form, they can represent simultaneously thior ancestors with whom they communicate; the major exploits of hunters; members of the family still alive; the different ceremonies. Between the Batammariba living there is a very deep link with the dead. Effectively each and every living person owes his life to the breath of a dead person who wants him to join him in the life hereafter. We would say a sort of desire for reincarnation. The rites of grief for the dead are associated with a return to life and the secret names of the dead enclose a vital energy. The traditioinal dances are very often associated with the ceremonies. Leisure Undertake a walking excursion to discover Koutammakou ; visit the tatas and the fetish tree ; visit Benin ; visit the animal park of Sarakawa:  Possibility to discover southern Togo; excursion on Mount Agou ( the highest summit in Togo; 986 m ); Aného, town on the way to Benin whence it is possible to take an excursion to Togoville by way of a trip on Lake Togo, one of the largest in Togo and explore Togoville. Situated 22 kms from Togoville is the lake dedicated to sacred crocodiles and the site of thephosphate mine. At Lacata there is a lake of hippopotamuses.

Description:


Notre partenaire WF en Islande, qui a vu le jour en 2001, est une ONG sans but lucratif qui promeut des activités nature et pacifiques pour les personnes qui cherchent à devenir volontaires en Islande. WF envoie aussi à l’étranger des Islandais qui souhaitent faire du volontariat. Les principales activités offertes par notre partenaire local sont des chantiers, des programmes d’échange et des séminaires. Ces activités s’adressent aux majeurs d’âge.


Les chantiers durent généralement entre 10 et 14 jours, à raison de 20-35 heures de travail par semaine (5 jours par semaine).


De nos jours, la tentative d’atteindre une paix au niveau international est devenue une possibilité tangible et le développement et le renforcement de liens de coopération et d’amitié à travers le contact avec des personnes de pays et de cultures différents ont prouvé leur efficacité dans la compréhension et l’unité entre les nations. Le but de notre partenaire est d’améliorer la compréhension interculturelle en offrant aux volontaires étrangers l’opportunité de prendre part à des activités nature et pacifiques.


About the volunteer work


Tu effectues des  tâches environnementales dans différents villages de la municipalité de Fjarðabyggð, comme nettoyer le littoral, planter des arbres et plantes, démonter de vieilles clôtures, déraciner des lupins et autres plantes ou  encore retracer des chemins de randonnée.


Les tâches effectuées dépendent également des conditions climatiques, ce qui explique pourquoi l’organisation WF est si flexible. Même s’il y fait souvent bon, attends-toi à une météo parfois peu clémente. Ce chantier est idéal pour ceux qui raffolent des activités en extérieur et des défis physiques. Tu participes aux activités 5 jours par semaine, et ce à raison d’environ 6 à 7 heures par jour.


Local accommodation


Tu loges dans le bâtiment communautaire d’Eskifjördur. Le lit est fourni, mais tu dois apporter ton sac de couchage ; une connexion internet est disponible.


Special info about the food


La nourriture est comprise durant toute la durée du chantier. Toutefois, chacun doit participer aux tâches comme la cuisine et le nettoyage. Comme il est toujours agréable de découvrir de nouvelles saveurs, tu es encouragé(e) à amener des recettes de chez toi.


About the project location


Parcourue de glaciers datant de l’ère glaciaire, la côte Est arbore de longs fjords étroits aux rives escarpées et aux pics dentelés qui contrastent avec les terres cultivables de l’arrière-pays. Les ports naturels, aux allures de villages de pêcheurs pittoresques et aux routes interminables, offrent une vue magnifique sur le paysage.


Fjardabyggd est une association de villages des fjords de l’Est de l’Islande. Elle comprend les villages d’Eskifjördur, Fáskrúdsfjördur, Mjóifjördur, Neskaupstadur, Reydarfjördur et Stödvarfjördur. Dans cette région, tu peux observer les caractéristiques qui font de l’Islande un endroit unique au monde : des fjords spectaculaires à la faune aquatique riche, une grande variété d’oiseaux et un nombre incalculable de chemins de randonnée, tous aussi stupéfiants les uns que les autres. Tu auras l’occasion d’explorer la région durant ton séjour.


About the leisure activities possible


En tant que volontaire, tu as accès aux piscines locales chauffées par géothermie. Coutumes islandaises, les piscines naturelles ont toujours joué un rôle social clé dans la culture du pays. La plupart des piscines permettent de nager à l’intérieur comme en plein air et disposent de jacuzzis et saunas ou hammams. Hveragerđi est réputé pour ses beaux paysages pour les randonnées, dont une rivière chauffée par des sources chaudes. Notre partenaire organise aussi des week-ends d’excursion à prix raisonnable vers les plus belles régions et merveilles naturelles que l’Islande a à offrir. L’excursion t’emmène voir des phénomènes et paysages propres à l’Islande : lagunes, chutes d’eau, régions volcaniques et géothermiques, glaciers, geysers, champs de lave, sources chaudes, chaînes de montagnes en rhyolite, trous de vapeur et même icebergs. 


L’Est de l’Islande est aussi parfait pour la randonnée. N’oublie pas de prendre de bonnes chaussures de marche.

Les vols internationaux arrivent à l’aéroport de Keflavík (KEF). WF propose une option minibus entre Reykjavík et l’Est de l’Islande pour un prix raisonnable (180 euros pour le voyage complet de 1 400 km, mais ce prix s’élève à 160 euros pour les projets avant juillet). Le trajet vers le chantier passe par le sud du pays tandis que le trajet de retour passe par le nord et l’ouest vers Reykjavík si les conditions sont assez bonnes.

About the volunteer work


Sur ce chantier, tu participes à des activités à raison de 6 heures par jour afin de rendre les maisons plus confortables : tu rénoves, peins, nettoies et répares des choses  présentes dans les maisons de l’organisation partenaire et dans la périphérie d’Eskifjördur. La maison principale d’Eskifjördur, ancienne école du village, a été construite il y a plus de cent ans. La maison à Stodvarfjordur servait de banque locale du village. Ces deux maisons étaient situées dans de belles régions qui offrent une vue panoramique magnifique des fjords et des montagnes. À présent, elles servent de logement pour les volontaires. Ne t’inquiète pas, vous serez surveillés et gérés par un charpentier professionnel !


Ce chantier te permet de passer un séjour incroyable en Islande aux côtés de volontaires issus d’autres pays et de vivre une expérience hors du commun où vous allez tous ensemble partager vos connaissances tout en développant  leur créativité et en abordant problèmes environnementaux et apprentissage interculturel.
