Join us and become an active part of our family.
Every animal is special, and unique, just like we are. Each animal has its character, its habits and quirks, its good and bad days. When we get to know an animal in this way, we give it a better life in which it can reach its full potential.
Would you like to contribute to a better life for animals and bring children and nature closer together?
The volunteer program is designed for anyone who would like to gain experience with horses or with the bonding of children and animals.
Each volunteer contributes in their own way to the welfare of the horses and other animals on the property and to raising awareness about animals.
We offer a variety of options to suit your wishes, interests, passions, and skills. Whether you want to help with animal care, landscaping, or help with our ongoing programs, we have an opportunity for you.
The work we do at Kaja and Grom Ranch is demanding and responsible, and all ranchers are well aware of this. That is why we ask anyone who would like to gain experience with us to take volunteering seriously.
The volunteer will gain practical experience in the field:
– animal care (dogs, chickens, ducks, sheep, goats, piglets, horses) according to the principles of the King’s approach method.
– landscaping (paddocks, fence repair, renovation/repair of wooden buildings, garden, etc.)
– implementation of programs for children and adults following the principles of the King’s approach method.
Volunteering enriches an individual’s soul, body, and mind.
Did you know that research has shown that charity work has a positive impact on a person’s health and well-being?
When we start paying attention to others and stop thinking about our problems, our stress levels decrease. As a result, our immune system improves. Helping others gives us a sense of satisfaction, purpose, and positive emotions and improves our self-image.
Volunteering allows you to touch others, follow your vision and aspirations and be part of something bigger.
Through volunteering, you meet new people, weave new friendships and see things from different perspectives.
Volunteering gives you a wide variety of new experiences that allow you to choose a career that suits you, adapt faster, be more resourceful, take on more responsibility, and, as a result, get promoted more quickly.
Three Weeks Volunteeer Program
Join us and spend at least 3 weeks in our company. The first week is dedicated to gaining basic knowledge in the field you have chosen. For the next two weeks, we will do daily assignments or special projects together.
We offer accommodation and meals to a volunteer who will spend three weeks with us in exchange for help. Upon completion, he/she will obtain a certificate of completed volunteering.
You can come as a volunteer once or twice a week. In this case, we ask that you volunteer for a longer period, as we need quite some time to be able to coordinate and teach you our approach to animals, philosophy, and way of work. Only when your knowledge of animals is sufficient, you can really start to help and volunteer.
In this case, the volunteer receives a certificate after 21 days of volunteering.
Volunteering as a family is a special experience through which you can create unforgettable moments. Working together can bring you even closer as a family, and various work at the Ranch is an opportunity which brings out hidden talents that surely each family member possesses.
Spend quality time with children and show them your values by example. Children learn not only in school from teachers but also in their free time from parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, shopkeepers, and hairdressers … They learn mainly through observation and they imitate what they see. Through volunteering, you can show your child your positive values such as compassion, responsibility, gratitude etc. Through volunteering, a child also develops interpersonal relationships and ways of communication, the ability to lead or to follow instructions, and teamwork. Volunteering strengthens family ties while helping to improve the well-being and life of animals. In addition to the psychological, physical, and emotional development of each family member, we must not forget that volunteering can be very fun and satisfying. Even during the work itself, we can be amused by fun situations, not to mention the feeling when at the end of the day, pleasantly tired, you can see a completed joint project.
After completing the project, a family gets a certificate of family volunteering.
ATTENTION: the volunteer program for families is not a vacation package at the Kaja and Grom Ranch. The program is designed for families to participate in work and help with various tasks on the Ranch. On the first visit, we do not guarantee contact with animals (brushing, equility). In case you as a family participate regularly and repeatedly, we will also reword your participation by working with animals (brushing, equility etc.). It is important to understand that working with horses requires a certain amount of knowledge, which unfortunately cannot be imparted in half a day.
