WhenAll year round
December 31, 2020
Our partner association is located in Stoumont, in the Heart of the Belgian Ardennes. It is a quiet village, surrounded by forests.
It has already worked with volunteers. Each year, about fifteen interns come and help on the farm. The farm building belongs to the family. They make it available to the organization. It has bought another building in which work will be done. It will be converted into a residential center. Work Depending on the needs of the farm, volunteers can either take part to the pedagogical project or work in the farm. Those who will work on the pedagogical project will supervise groups. Those who do manual work will work in the farm (feed animals, clean the barn…).

Depending on the needs of the farm, volunteers can either take part in the pedagogical project or work in the farm. Those who will work on the pedagogical project will supervise groups. Those who do manual work will work in the farm (feed animals, clean the barn…). Volunteers must be aware that working in a farm can be very physical. It can be very tiring. Working with animals is a concrete job (feeding animals, cleaning the barn…) and not a romantic one (a cow is not a nice stuffed animal). They will help adults who work on the site. Workers will teach them how to do the different tasks. The aim is that they slowly become more and more independent. Work schedule will depend on the moments. In summer, there are sessions for children. During those sessions, children will have activities from 9 AM to 4 PM (Walking in the forest, taking care of the animals, making bread…). After 4 PM, it will be necessary to organize games, dinner, showers, night walks and breakfast.
