Mission Volunteer Opportunities: Asia/Pacific
Location: Asian Rural Institute (ARI) in Nasushiobara-shi, Tochigi-ken.
Position: ARI Training Program Volunteer
Duration: 2 to 12 months
Estimated monthly living expenses: $500, including housing and meals.
Work Description: Volunteers will serve as part of ARI’s diverse and vibrant community and help support the training program. Each volunteer is assigned to a work section dependent upon their skills and the needs of ARI. Work assignments include livestock, crops and vegetables, office, meal service, maintenance and food processing. In addition to working in their assigned sections, volunteers are engaged in activities that contribute to the life of the community. The ability to co-exist humbly, work hard and live in an international and, at times, challenging community is a requirement for the volunteer. ARI asks that the volunteers be in good basic health, as much of the work is physical.
