Peru - Eco Truly Park



Dear

You are welcome to participate in our volunteer program. We hope that we can provide you with the experience to live in a community and learn by helping. Here you will find special people that will do their best to make you feel comfortable and at home; you will have such an experience that you might want to stay here forever and never leave. Below is a brief description of the community. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.

*Please read this carefully.*

Best Regards

Eco Truly Park is a beautiful Peruvian Pacific coast ecological, artistic community founded on Vaisnava principles, strategically located on Chacra y Mar beach, a district of Aucallama, in the province of Huaral, one hour by bus or car (63 km) north of the capital city, Lima.
We live together according to principles of non-violence, simple living and elevated thinking, and visitors can learn and experience how it is possible to live happily in harmony with nature, others, and themselves. We are looking for people that are basically open-minded and want to practice tolerance, compassion and patience.





The architecture and values of the community is in part inspired by Indian traditional teachings and lifestyle. We are the first lively ecological educational center in Peru and have inspired similar successful projects in neighboring countries such as Chile, Ecuador, Colombia and Bolivia. http://officebap.com/directory/ The community is located at 2.5 m above sea level and consisted previously of completely sandy, unworkable land, but in the last 18 years we have developed a unique organic awareness cultivation and ecological program run by an increasing number of residents and volunteers, with the goal of becoming fully sustainable and self-sufficient.

Today our community is visited by the people from Lima and all over the world, who are able to experience an alternative way of life. The surrounding area of Huaral has thus been positively influenced in terms of the development of ecological consciousness. According to recent professional studies, Eco Truly Park programs have become a model of sustainable alternative solutions for the extreme poverty that impacts more than half of Peruvian citizens (over 14 million people) living in rural and urban marginalized villages. Nowadays, Eco Truly Park is also recognized as an important tourist destination by local government and the Peruvian media, receiving over 75,000 visitors since its inception.

Usually the minimum requested time commitment for volunteers is one month, as it is costly for us to train and provide services to new volunteers. Some of our volunteers can only stay for a few weeks, so we understand that people may be time limited and accept short stays (minimum ten days) on a person by person basis, if you would like to stay for only a few days, there is the option to stay in our hostel.

Volunteers are allowed to stay at Eco Truly for as long as they wish. To get the most out of their experience, we estimate interns will want to commit themselves to at least 4 hours/day. Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to join us; the only requirement is that you are enthusiastic about working with our community. Our basic accommodations are separate shared rooms for men and women; if you would prefer a separate, individual room in our hostel, we can provide that service for a slight cost.



We have a number of workshops that you can take advantage of including yoga, art, and vedic philosophy. You are also more than welcome to help out in our kitchen, vegetarian restaurant or bakery (operational 2 days a week). If you are willing to get dirty, you are can work in our organic farm with our biodynamic agronomist who also imparts theoretical and practical classes on organic agriculture, preparation of humus, and composting. More than anything we hope that you make new friends, and have the experience of a lifetime.







The nearest town is only 15 minutes away by car and provides Internet (about 1 sol per hour) and international calling service. There are also some small shops closer where you can by most necessary items. We do have a machine for laundry as well as sinks (if you want to wash clothes the old fashioned way and conserve energy).

In this moment we don't offer Spanish lessons but we do have a number of English speakers, and it is a very good place to practice Spanish in the performance of daily activities. People come here from all over the world, so we try and help out as much as possible to accommodate language difficulties.

We have a computer in our office that is available to for limited use, but we do not have available Internet. Electricity in Peru is 220 Volts, alternating at 60 cycles per second, so you may need a voltage converter.





Basic things we suggest that you should bring with you:
-A sleeping bag
-Toilet Paper.
-A book with a pen
-We recommend you to have an mp3 player. We love to share our music, audio books, and Vedic Philosophy classes.
-An ID Card , personal documents.
-And the will to be open minded and happy.
-NO drugs including alcohol and cigarettes please.

Remember that you are coming to join a group of people living together: this is a community group and it's a non-profit community. To know more about how we live please check out Oida Therapy at http://www.oidatherapy.org/. There you can download a book on the topic. There is an Vaisnava Ashram here too.

How to get there...
Our "Eco Village" is strategically located on Chacra y Mar beach, a district of Aucallama in the province of Huaral, one hour by bus or car(63 km) north of the capital city, Lima.
How to arrive: if you are in Lima , take a taxi to "PLAZA ACHO" at the end of "Abancay Avenue" , there is a bus station called "TURISMO HUARAL". We recommend that you take a taxi. The TURISMO HUARAL bus costs 5 soles.
You can take the taxi from outside of the airport , it is less expensive and you can bargain for a lower price. Maybe 20 or 15 soles. The taxi service from inside the airport is a bit more expensive but also more secure.

Eco Truly Park is located at the end of Pasamayo Road about one and a half hours north of Lima by the sea at "CHACRA Y MAR BEACH". Pay attention, as you will have to get off the bus at "PARADERO OVALO".
You can tell the bus assistant to advise you when you get to "PARADERO OVALO". From there you take a Taxi (5 soles)to "CHACRA Y MAR BEACH".
There you will see the big mud constructions (a traditional Indian structure called a Truly).
We will be waiting for you. You can call us at:

Hello dear manager , please upload the information of this article: And erase: "There is no minimum time" Volunteers may stay at Eco Truly for as long as they wish.

And please erase this :

Usually the minimum requested time commitment for volunteers is one month, as it is costly for us to train and provide services to new volunteers. Some of our volunteers can only stay for a few weeks, so we understand that people may be time limited and accept short stays (minimum ten days) on a person by person basis, if you would like to stay for only a few days, there is the option to stay in our hostel.

Thank you for your help
