  • Type of work Agriculture and Construction Projects As a volunteer you can join grandfather in the mornings on his agricultural vehicle to carry out the rice from our own Ricemill. This is a great way to get to know the villagers and earn their trust. You can cut the bamboo in the woods to build hats, fences or furniture for our V2T Village, or even work with concrete. You can help with the rice harvest, threshing, mowing or cultivate our herb garden. You may drive our tuktuk or go by bike to take care of your errands. Further, you can work with the animals, for example with the water buffalos or learn about pig farming in our pigsty. Depending on the season you could even go fishing in the pond.
