About the local hosting organizationRanis is a small village in the Thuringian Mountains, not far from Saalfeld, surrounded by beautiful countryside with mountains, green valleys, forests and meadows. During the 13th century a fortress was built on a hill near the village. The estate where the Guesthouse Papilio belongs to served as the outer bailey of the fortress. The "Guesthouse Papilio" is nowadays a recreation centre for children and teenagers. For more information and pictures you can check here: www.tour-papilio.de.
About the volunteer workInternational volunteers are invited to improve the grounds of a nice leisure centre. Tasks are likely to include construction and renovation works. One of the most important works will be building new animal enclosures. The host will appreciate your ideas and suggestions to build it. Another task will be redesigning a room where domestic animals are shown in their natural surrounding. Other environmental and construction works outside and inside are possible, please be open for any other work. Interest in artisanship and creativity are welcome!
