Unlike many other organizations, Moradas Verdes does not change a participation fee. Yes, this initiative in just beginning, and yes, we need founding, but what we require the most are committed volunteers.
Long time ago, I wanted to be a volunteer myself, I wanted to help others and change the world. I did my homework; I did the research, sent the application forms to several organizations and aid programs in different parts of the world. Many of them did not even answer, others said "thank you" but "no, thank you". Still others told me that my Bachelors degree in International Relations was not useful, they needed people with real skills. (Doctors, carpenters, builders etc). And then, there were the one that actually said yes. The problem was that I had to pay huge amounts of cash to work for free to help others. Since I did not have that kind of money, I was not good to help others. I felt frustrated, stayed at the same job and the world did not change.
Here, we all fit. It is up to you, with your help there will be open spaces so that the people that really want to help can find something to contribute to relevant projects. This way, different people might learn new skills and gain experience on Earthbag Building while working in rural areas and communities. There are also opportunities to work in making the organization run. Join us!
Meanwhile, you can already help us. If you wish, you can:
Tell everyone about the work we are doing. Let your friends, family, relatives, work mates know about Earthbag Building. Place a link on your website, blog, facebook, twitter, where ever!
