About the local hosting organizationThanks to this workcamp, you will be immersed in the heart of French rurality life. It is in our countryside where we can shake people's minds and work for the acceptance of cultural and human differences. You will live with ten international and French volunteers who chose to participate in the realization of a dream: building peace in the world. Some of them will stay in the village for 6 months, others will stay for 1 year. This group will welcome you at home for three weeks. You will be integrated into their daily life.
About the volunteer workEvery week, a big market is organized in the heart of the village, under a large market hall. One of the market stone walls is not very clean. You will be in charge of renovating the seals between the stones. You will be accompanied by a technical leader. On site, you will have the opportunity to meet the local people who will most certainly be delighted and pleasantly surprised by your initiative.
Local accommodationYou will sleep in the House of Companions with long-term volunteers, in large dormitories. You will have to cook in teams in the collective kitchen. You will have access to the sanitary facilities (showers and toilets) of the house.
