WindAid

Upcoming Programmes

Are you interested in renewable energy, wind turbines, environmetnal issues, development projects or simply volunteering your time to make a real difference in the world? Then volunteering with WindAid could the perfect experience for you.

WindAid is a non-profit social responsibility organisation based in Trujillo, Peru and we run environmental development projects building wind turbines for communities in Peru without access to electricity.

As a volunteer on one of our projects, you will be involved in building a wind turbine from scratch and then spend the final week of the programme living with the community while you install the wind turbine. The programme offers the opportunity to get involved in hands-on engineering, learn more about wind energy and international development projects or just experience life in another country. Volunteers do not need any previous skills, just an interest and enthusiasm for renewable energy or a desire to make a difference to the environment.

The dates for our upcoming programmes are:
6th June - 8th July 2011
26th September - 28th October 2011
7th November - 9th December 2011
30th January - 2nd March 2012
26th March - 27th April 2012

Each programme is limited to 8 volunteers and places do fill quickly so if you are interested then contact us as soon as possible.
