According to Wikipedia, Tribewanted is a sustainable tourism and social enterprise project which began on Vorovoro Island in Fiji in 2006. In 2010 Tribewanted began operating its second project at John Obey in Sierra Leone. In 2013 they opened a further project in a traditional Italian ‘borgo’ or hamlet in Umbria called Monestevole and a Community Interest Company to crowd-fund further projects.
Tribewanted describes its mission as ‘to build sustainable communities in amazing places that benefit locals and visiting members; inspiring positive change within and far beyond the village.
And their most recent project is to find 10 volunteers to build an environmentally friendly tourist facility in Gonubalabala Island in the Milne Bay Province and show it off to the world as a model of low-impact development.
Tribewanted is looking for 10 intrepid pioneers who want to immerse themselves in island life and live differently for a little while. The organisation has partnered with the community of Gonubalabala and the Mailulu clan to bring volunteers an incredible island adventure and cultural experience.
Tribewanted supports the 20 island inhabitants’ goal of building a simple off-grid eco-tourism site.
More specifically, they are looking for an electrician, a doctor, a teacher, a permaculturist, a musician, a cook and YOU!
The period of stay is a few weeks they say and for the entire dry season on this idyllic island in the Samarai archipelago and build new tribe-homes.
Here’s the invitation:
Join us for a once in a lifetime
Why join us on Gonubalabala?
Become part of this beautiful Papua New Guinean village, get your hands dirty in the yam gardens, go fishing in canoes with the local fishermen, help out on new construction projects such as building compost loos or local style wood & bamboo tribe homes, or lend a hand in the kitchen
Immerse yourself in island life, customs and traditions that have been going on for thousands of years. We will be living 100% off the grid, with only the energy from the sun and lanterns at night, only the water harvested from the rain and only the food grown locally or freshly fished
2. Swim & Island Hop:
Swim with giant Manta Rays on the spectacular coral reef right off the beach, island hop to nearby deserted beaches
Fresh fruit, fresh coconuts straight from the palm trees, delicious coconut bread, home-grown yams & greens and fresh fish make for a traditional local diet
