PARTENAIRE

The organic farm community aeurooeKotthausenaeuro consist of approximately 50 hectare farm and grazing land, woodlands, different farm buildings and 4 houses build in regional style. The community consists of a variety of people, with different abilities, wishes, dreams and special capabilities. Currently we have 6-7 children and 21 adults living in our village. Chicken, sheep, goats, horses, cats and dogs are an integral part of our community and part of our voluntary community work. Inclusion with disabled people is part of our living and working within the community, farming as well as our organic food delivery organisation, aeurooeBiokisteaeuro. For further information please see http://www.hof-kotthausen.de/

TRAVAIL

This summer we would like to offer projects around the farm and the surrounding fields. We would like to renew the fencing of the horse paddocks and some of the grazing fields. Another project will be improving the sheep stable and painting it. Fun will be to create garden furniture out of wood pallets as well as restoring an old pony carriage. Also our agriculture field will need some attention, pulling weeds and hopefully harvesting our food that we use to cook our meals. If it is very hot a small pond will offer some cooling as well as short walk to our wood stream Lohbach. A wonderful bathing lake is within a short car drive and perfect for an evening swim on those hot summer nights.Volunteers are invited to prepare a wedding within the community and will be invited to celebrate this wedding together with the community in the last weekend.

LOGEMENT &NOURRITURE

The accommodation of the participants will be in bigger and smaller tents. In case of extended bad weather a big barn will also be available. A community kitchen with 2 showers and toilettes is close by. Please bring your own sleeping bags, sleeping mats (if possible) and towels.

SITUATION

Participants will be part of the community on a day to day basis and especially some evenings when the summer evenings invite to BBQ gatherings. Organic Farm live and especially day to day animal care will be integral part of the project. Additionally, the participants will have the opportunity to see therapeutic riding and are invited to share their knowledge from their countries.The farm village Kotthausen is 295 m above the sea level. Kotthausen has been mentioned first in medieval times around 1350. The region aeurooeBergisches Landaeuro is famous for its wet weather but has an amazing beautiful nature with stunning skies.

yap-cfd workcamps

ICJA was founded as an exchange program between the U.S. and Germany in 1949. The original mission of ICJA was to promote international understanding and to work towards a world in which tolerance and peace prevail. By the inclusion of various partner countries, the idea to form a development cooperation became gradually more important. Thus, the ICJA is founder member of the international federation "International Cultural Youth Exchange" (ICYE), which consists of several National Committees in 34 countries. In 1987, the ICYE received the award as "peacemessenger". In 2009, ICJA was furthermore approved as an official project of the UNESCO Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. ICJA is both, a sending and hosting organization for long term volunteers. ICJA organises volunteering services for German citizens of different ages in over 40 countries on every continent. ICJA simultaneously accompanies and supports volunteers from across the world working in social, political or ecological projects in Germany. Our volunteers usually stay for 12 months, in exceptional cases for 6 months. For further information, please consult our website: www.icja.de

yap-cfd started in the year 1923 as a circle of people engaged against the war. It expanded to an international union of people who try to build bridges of understanding and to mitigate misery. The main request of yap-cfd is to reduce national and cultural prejudices and animosity among people and to promote mutual tolerance.
