For people who want to join our work

Friends of Mambo

"Our preceding six weeks at MamboViewPoint had been extraordinary and deeply influenced us very much. With friendships formed and the beauty of the place  always inspiring, it is a place to which we would love to come back"
The owners of MamboViewPoint, Herman and Marion, are social entrepreneurs and are happy to invite people who intend to put energy in their project. Although there are some pre conditions. One is that in general our friends have to take care of their own income. MamboViewPoint is happy to support positive initiatives but is not able to pay salaries or even costs for stay. In general we can advise you to do the same as we did ourselves and are advising our fellow villagers: let inspire you, there are many possibilities for setting up a business or getting funding.
