Condiciones vida en voluntariado europeo Finlandia
accommodation is here in Kurjen Tila eco-village, in shared room with shared bathroom, kitchen and sauna. Because of the shared bedroom, we’d need male candidates (as the other chosen volunteer is male)! The work starts at 9am in the school and there’s possibility to get a lift from community members in the morning, but also the local buss works well. Volunteers with driving license would be good.
The volunteers will be living in our community house, pictured in the background image of this page. The immediate surrounding area is peaceful countryside of Vesilahti. Vesilahti is a nice small municipality of roughly 4500 residents, 35 kilometers from the third biggest city of Finland, Tampere. Kurjen Tila has strong connections with Tampere, most of our residents are employed within the city. You can research the surrounding area through google maps here.
Public transport between Vesilahti and Tampere is solid, but if the need arises we have a car permanently in the use of our volunteers.
Work is to be done mostly from 9-15 from Monday to Friday + 1-2 hours independent working. Lunch is offered at the school 5 days a week. There is possibility on saturdays to join community lunch in our ecovillage. Volunteers will get 80€ per month for groceries and 125€ pocket money for other personal use.
