Your Campus Connection


Historically, and even now, people have been searching for the true definition of a peaceful, harmonious, and “happy life”. In pursuit of the answer to this question, a group of people gathered in 1984 in what is now Sanan Village, an idealistic community which follows the philosophy of an environment-friendly, non-possessive society. As of today, around 20 families reside within this communal village, and the residents are encouraged to pay more attention to the preservation and conservation of the environment while also freely sharing public resources. People of village live together, work together and share together. The volunteers should follow their way of life. Main income of the village is chicken farming. Their organic products, mostly eggs, are sold at the market in the city and are popular with those who prefer eco-friendly products.
Those who are interested in a new, prospective way of living - one which is very different from a "normal and capitalized” life - may obtain some fresh ideas about their life through this program.

Volunteers will assist the villagers with organic farming, taking care of chickens, and household work such as cooking and cleaning in the village kitchen.
Various festivals are taking place often in the village. You may have chance to meet many people through those events.
In the chicken house, the volunteers will be taking care of the chicks, old chickens, feeding them and giving medicines. They will also work in the egg-selection-facility (collecting eggs). In the village kitchen, the volunteers will help prepare meals for the residents.

During the project, volunteers will be able to not only eat healthy and organic food from nature but also experience different way of life with warm-hearted locals.
You may have chance to learn Korean and Japanese too as you'll possibly meet a few Japanese residents. There will be further culture exchange through sports, cooking, and various activities.

Working and living together with other volunteers from around the world provides an excellent opportunity to make many new friends, learn about unknown places and culture, gain new skills and experience. Your time, energy, and enthusiasm can make a difference in areas where help is really needed.
