This is a one-of-a-kind experience to live and work with Rastafarians in their village in Jamaica. Rastafarians promote a culture of one love and oneness, and believe that nature is designed to take care of people, so they cherish natural eating, wellness, and environmental preservation.

The program is a unique opportunity to interact on a day-to-day basis with Rastafarians in the village and learn more about their culture while contributing to their various tasks. If you are keen on anthropology, sociology, Rastafari music, drumming, organic farming, and history, then this project will excite you. It will be a lived experience because Rastafari is not a religion but a way of life. Negative energy, words and ways of living are reframed to positivity.

If you are adventurous, prefer a non-typical type of volunteering experience, and keen to learn more about this authentic group of positive thinkers, then this is the project for you. Volunteering on this project will give you a deep understanding of the Rastafarian culture and way of life, and help you to appreciate simple and wholesome living.
