If you would like to spend longer living at our beach camp why not volunteer? We need people with skills in teacher training, hospitality management, microfinancing, sports development, wildlife conservation, tourism development, nursery or primary teaching. We would also be happy to talk to you about your background and experience and identify a project we need help with.
There is still a lot of work to do here but our philosophy remains the same- our profits from the beach camp support local childrens’ education. We need permanent brick buildings for the nursery classes, we need more funds for additional teachers and we have limited teaching materials in the classrooms. For longer term goals we would like to set up a local women’s micro-financing business so that our community women can make an independent living and have the finances to send their children to school on a long term basis. We also need funds to create better sanitation in the village, we need to build a 9 cubicle toilet block – as currently we have no facilities at all for 3000 people!
