ABOUT UBUNTU FARM

The farm is run by Greg Mitchell and his wife Sarah – mainly operating as an animal rehabilitation centre for a wide variety of wild African animals – with some animals roaming freely and some in cages. It is a 110 acre farm located on the edge of the spectacular mountains surrounding the town of Badplaas (Bath Farm) in the province of Mpumalanga, South Africa. 

The farm consists of a lodge that operates as a weekend getaway for city folk, with log cabins to accommodate around 40 people, and a swimming pool.

The farm has crystal clear fresh mountain water and all the basic infrastructure to expand into many projects. 


First Phase - Starting in January 2017

The first phase will focus on foundation building – supporting the existing animal rehabilitation activity while creating new projects to support it. This is normally the hardest part of starting any volunteer programme – but also the most exciting part, where life-long friendships are forged and miracles happen every day.

We need to be very selective in the first phase of volunteers for the creation of a solid platform for all the intended projects to come. While people will be chosen for their specialised skills everyone is expected to help and get involved in all areas of activity, where it may be needed. 


  We invite volunteers with the following skills to join us:

PLEASE NOTE:

This is NOT a job offer as some have mistakenly seen it, and neither is it a place for people to come live for free, to escape their personal problems. This is an opportunity for those who want to take a few months off from the madness of the world, to come contribute towards building and creating something new and unique in the world – and in the process maybe find their true-self, as is often the case in these situations. We need real skills in people that will not be shy to get their hands dirty.

Contributions by VOLUNTEERS
Unfortunately we cannot afford to feed and house everyone at our own cost – so we have made it as affordable as possible for everyone, especially for those using currencies like the US$, EURO or GBP. By becoming a volunteer in this project, you will not only help build something unique, but also contribute towards laying the foundations of future sustainable community projects. 

Volunteer contribution is $30 per day – Which covers accommodation; three meals per day, coffees and teas – and other basic necessities. Cigarettes, alcohol and other personal habits will be for your own account.
