The objectives of the project are: - To encourage socialization and integration of young people with social integration difficulties. - To train youngsters on specific tasks and the acquisition of work habits. - To provide them with tools so they can develop skills, responsibility and autonomy. - To sell the produce. - To distribute benefits equitably among participants.
International volunteers will work together with the beneficiaries of the project, maintaining the vegetable garden, producing organic food, creating new plants and helping in activities related to the agriculture process.
Duration of the project: Minimum stay of 3 months is recommended so that volunteers can get involved in local projects, adapt to the new culture and feel the impact of their work.
