About the local hosting organizationThe city council of Fa and its inhabitants are looking forward to host an international workcamp next summer. They already organized one last summer, and have been very welcoming to the international volunteers. In this remote area of France, at the threshold of the Pyrénées mountains, you may feel isolated or far from everything, but you will be welcomed and invited into the community of people living here. Through the work and the exchange with other volunteers and villagers, the participants will become part of the community of this little remote yet lovely place called Fa.
About the volunteer workYou will significantly participate in increasing the quality of life of the local residents. Indeed, the project is to build a bread-oven in a public space, on the village square, which will then be used for the different village festivals and celebrations. You will also work on other work of a different nature in the public area of the village, such as creating an area for recycling and another one for composting.
Local accommodationYou will set up your tents in the heart of the village (with access to bathroom and kitchen in a nearby building), and will have the opportunity to exchange with all the inhabitants who will welcome you and share their daily life with you in this remote area.
About the project locationFa is a village located near the Pyrénées Mountains in south of France. This village is inhabited by a couple hundreds of people who live in a spirit of community. Don't be fooled, remote doesn't mean quiet and cold. You will enjoy the rich culture of the area, the live-concert in the local café, the summer festival in the village of the area, and plenty of opportunities to discover the natural surrounding area. Even the mayor will give you a tour and share with you the history of the surroundings.
RequirementsProject open to French, German and Turkish volunteers
