We build early learning eco-friendly children's villages and big, bright futures

volunteer village

fws's volunteer village has been designed to provide comfortable and safe living conditions for our dedicated volunteers, while being sensitive to the local environment.

The systems we've created here mean we can lead by example within the local community, being sustainable in our use of resources.

When our neighbours and staff see our volunteers using compost toilets (pictured below) and drinking rainwater, it greatly increases their acceptance of these relatively foreign concepts.

Combine this with organic domestic gardens, bucket showers and other sustainable living techniques, we’d like to think that our volunteers return home more educated and understanding of the world around them.
