    Want To Stay For Free In Goa? Only If You Volunteer At This Art Community

    What Is It?

    Saraya, an eco-stay and art community based in Bardez, Goa, is giving you a chance to explore the other side of work – waiting tables at their cafe or helping at their farm. {Maybe you could stay there and even visit this scenic dam while you’re at it?}

    How Does It Work?

    While they have paid accommodation as well, we’re more keen on their volunteer program. Their volunteer program is ideal for people looking to take a break, a sabbatical between jobs or making this a way of life. You can help them out with the maintenance of their farm, art gallery {if the renovation is on} or just wait tables at their cafe. A volunteer needs to work for four hours a day and Saraya takes care of your accommodation {in dorm}, meals and tea.

    If the volunteer program doesn’t excite you much, they also have the eco stay where the tariff in off-season starts at INR 900. The tariff includes breakfast access to community spaces, a meditation pond and one could also attend workshops at their art centre.

    So, We're Thinking...

    If the city life is bogging you down and dampening your spirits, take a break and do this for yourself. It’s not a huge investment and you get to see Goa in a different light.
