Jungle Community Immersion

Teaching the Kukama Kukamiria Computer skills

You will be accommodated in a basic home stay in the Kukama Reserve where the members are descendants of the Kukama Kukamiria ethnic group. Their day starts early feeding their animals, going to the farm to pick up firewood to cook, and carrying water. During the day people spend their time preparing the natural fibers to make handbags, bracelets, dream catchers, traditional masks etc. Your host family will greatly appreciate, when you start helping them with their daily activities. You can even learn the craftmaship from them!

Enjoy Nature and Simple Life far from the Ammenities of Western Civilization

Since life in this rural town is basic, you will not find the amenities you are used to. As the experience here is flexible and personal, you have the freedom to take part in different activities during your placement, exploring sides of life in the jungle. This is perfect for those wanting to immerse deep with nature and find joy in the simple life. Your host family will teach you about wild plants used for medicine, food, and tools and will show you beautiful and relaxing views.
