Do you want to live more simply and with socially conscious people? Are you reluctant to leave the city because the nice places seem like social deserts with alien languages? Do you want to spend less time paying your overheads and more time doing whatever you want?
We are a small group of tele-working professionals planning to spend the coming winter working in a warmer, cheaper, and more relaxed setting.
We invite fellow social entrepreneurs to join us and share facilities such as wifi, cook, scooter, etc. We are looking for people who are engaged in some professional work (rather than just holidaying), and keen to spend time among like-minded people and support each other professionally and creatively.
The house chosen for the centre is near the village of Mandrem in the far north of Goa. It is next to http://www.atmangoa.com
Residents (October - May) will contribute 2000 Euros for the 8 months
Non residents will contribute 150 Euros per month (from November) for internet, proper workstations, daily meal and some transport & seminars. 1/3 off for payments made before end of September. Accommodation can be found very close by from around 100 Euros per month. A good meal can be had for one Euro.
Jo - Worked in London in CSR for a number of years before deciding that London was not conducive to sanity. Spent the last 2 years freelancing for an international NGO specialising in training and consultancy in Cross-sector partnering for sustainable development. Relocated to Goa a year ago, and have been blissfully happy tele-working from my sea-view terrace.
Jem - Works in Geneva and Brisbane as a consultant and academic, on responsible enterprise and partnerships for social change. Wanting more low-key time to write a book, develop a wild portal idea, and focus on just a few clients. Also wants to learn yoga and how to cook good curry.
Matthew - Spent some years doing IT with non-profits, but didn't like the affluence and complacency of Geneva life. Now working on software to help communities use complementary currencies in their own web sites. To this end I have recruited Nick...
Nick - Likes work, peace, people and dancing.
