The Experience

We are a small Belgian & Malagasy (from Madagascar) family living on a small island (Itamaraca) off the coast of Pernambuco in North East Brazil (an hour drive from Recife), and we are running apartment rentals in a luxurious condo directly on the beach. We are looking for volunteers to help us run our business (mostly cleaning, general maintenance), and take care of our son Lenny. He loves painting, stars and everything that shines.

Umas das mais gostosas experiência que tive voluntariando, ficaria muito muito mais tempo aqui . A Sthepanie é maravilhosa, conversamos muito muito , compartilhamos muitas histórias 🥰. O voluntariado é super tranquilo . Eu tinha receio por ser limpeza e eu não era muito fã de limpar e tals . Mas ela ensina certinho como limpar os ap e juro que eu gostei muito , ficava animado em por limpar e curtia muito o trabalho.
Quarto privado super confortável com ar .
Casa com um jardim incrível. Aaah gente , poderia escrever um livro de todas as coisas lindas daqui. Tô muito feliz ❤️

A experiencia no Manga Verde foi muito tranquila! Fui muito bem recebida por Stephanie e Lenny, lá me senti em casa. A acomodação fica em frente ao condomínio, onde era feito o trabalho. A localização é ótima, o trabalho tranquilo e bem organizado e a acomodação confortável. As praias e a tranquilidade dessa ilha são apaixonantes. As cachorrinhas são um xodó só

O voluntariado no Manga Verde foi uma experiência muito agradável. O local onde ficamos hospedados é bem em frente ao local de trabalho e conta com quarto privativo. Fomos muito bem recebidos e tratados pela anfitriã Stephanie e seu filho Lenny, uma criança muito inteligente e criativa. O trabalho no condomínio foi tranquilo e as atividades bem explicadas pela anfitriã que forneceu todos os materiais necessários. A Ilha de Itamaracá é um lugar encantador e nos pareceu muito seguro.

O voluntariado que fizemos no Manga Verde foi excelente! Nos são fornecidos materiais e condições de fazer a limpeza e arrumação dos apartamentos de maneira que nos orgulhamos com o resultado final! A anfitriã Stephanie e seu filho Lenny são pessoas maravilhosas, dessas que a gente leva no coração para o resto da vida. O quarto e a casa onde ficamos são muito confortáveis e adequados a uma estadia muito agradável. Passeios e acesso aos vários lugares da ilha são fáceis. Recomendamos o voluntariado!

Una experiencia increíble.Stephanie es super organizada con las tareas, flexible con horarios y siempre atenta a que te sientas cómodo. No hubo sorpresas, o si las hubo, todas fueron positivas! Fue nuestra primer experiencia, llegamos llenos de miedos pero basto el primer día para que nos de la confianza que necesitábamos! Muy respetuosa, si pasas algo por alto en las tareas te lo comunica de la mejor manera. Amamos sus comidas, el pan en el desayuno, sus mascotas y sobre todo a su hijo Lenny con quien nos divertimos mucho, con solo diez ańos es un chico muy inteligente. Ya los extrańamos!!
