Ancient Ways

Image_201901251516

Ancient Ways is a small grassroots nonprofit, located in Lacomb, Oregon, which is dedicated to helping the people of Zimbabwe. Historically, we have provided services in two separate areas of Zimbabwe: "Nhimbe for Progress" in Mhondoro and "Jangano" in the Dewedzo Mountains, reaching over 2,200 people, including nearly 1,150 children, as well as assisting the NGO Tamuka in Harare. Our current focus is on the children of Nhimbe for Progress and the construction of wells for the extended families in Mhondoro. We operate a preschool with about 75 children and a Monthly Care program for over 300 maturing girls. We are very skilled at making a large impact with few resources.

Currently, we are in great need of a volunteer who can offer 2 hours per month to focus on website backups and Word Press updates to stay current with website maintenance requirements, which can be done from the comfort of your own home. This would free-up our part-time Executive Director to focus on fund-raising to keep the programs going and to further expand them.

If you have these skills and have been looking for a way to use your volunteer time to really make a difference, we might make a great fit! Please contact Jaiaen Beck at gogreen@ancient-ways.org and read more about us at www.ancient-ways.org or chat with her at 541259-HOPE.

The Ancient Ways' mission is to learn from and preserve the traditional ways of indigenous peoples around the world, and throughout time, by exploring their art, music, and cosmology, so that we can educate and encourage people today to develop ways to live which are more environmentally and socially sustainable.

Description

Ancient Ways is located in Oregon 's mid-Willamette Valley, and is based in Lacomb, a rural area in the foothills of the Cascades. The organization, as a community, is an ever-changing organism. The local people who have created this network extend east to Sweet Home, south to Lebanon and Eugene , west to Albany , Philomath, and Corvallis and north to Monmouth, Stayton and Salem . This includes those who have been brought together by sharing the sweet sounds of Zimbabwean music, as well as those who find connection in the heart of Ancient Ways as a center for healing of both our planet and ourselves.
