Help us with our website in Saint Lucia!

Program Details

Our volunteers have their own private cabin, and also receive free breakfast and dinner. Our family consists of my mother (73) and myself (41), and my 5 year old nephew also spends a lot of time with us. Balenbouche Estate is a historic sugar plantation which we have converted into a retreat center, heritage park, eco lodge and restaurant. There are 2 beaches on property and many attractions within a 10 - 30 minute drive. The South of St. Lucia is an amazing place to visit and explore. Weather is pretty good year round, the best time is between December and June.

Activities & Shift

We would like to change from a custom word press theme back to a flexible default theme, and improve our online presence overall as well as organic search results. However, instead of you doing it for us, I'd like you to actually teach me to create and update the site myself. I already have some experience and am keen to learn more. Some of the work can be done remotely before or after your stay, so you can take advantage of your time on the island. :-)


We are looking for someone with a high level of experience in web design and SEO, since we already have basic knowledge ourselves.
