Builder – We need volunteers with building skills to help develop our planning, training and construction processes in the village.  It remains a constant challenge to train local workers and we need someone who loves being on site and can help us develop our foremen and supervisors.  If you have construction experience, then do please consider this.

Business Leader – We have now established 6 businesses. Each has its own USP’s, marketing and production issues.  If you understand business we need you to come and coach our business heads and help them understand profitability and grow the businesses.  This is what will make the village sustainable and provide income to support education and healthcare.  If you have business acumen, we need your help.

Team leader – If you are organised and great with people, we have a whole series of jobs that come our way that needs someone to pick up.  From showing visitors around the village and hosting teams who come to help, to helping us manage those moving to the village and communicate well.  This does not need a major track record.  It just needs a willing heart and common sense.

Builders/Plumbers/Carpenters/DIY lovers

The expansion of our building program is coming and we have opportunities beyond the village to build low cost homes.  There are few in the country with the basic skills we need to lead and train on the projects.  You may be able to come for short or longer times.
