Startacus is all about people doing things for the greater good and with Tribewanted entering its' third series, we thought it was only fair to let everyone know about this hands-on project, that takes ‘doing sometribewanted good’, half way around the world..

In essence, Tribewanted is a social project that builds a ‘tribe’ of local communities, partners and members (from all over the World) to co-create a new and sustainable village, somewhere in the world.

Co-Founder Ben Keene, who was previously interviewed by our sister site TheEmployable previously has just launched series 3 of Tribewanted based at the returning John Obey Beach in Sierra Leone.

In October 2010 the first members of the tribe arrived at John Obey Beach, 20 miles south of the capital, Freetown, and began to build a new community alongside the local fishing village. The first two seasons saw the building of 5 cal-earth domes, the sea bright solar tower, beach kitchen, first three VIP Shacks on the lagoon, and permaculture gardens.

Just as importantly they started to build a partnership and friendship with the fishing community of John Obey. 30 full-time earth-builders, carpenters, cooks, farmers, gardeners, managers and guides led the development. They will continue with earth-building and community projects with the new season starting October 2012.

Check out the Tribewanted website and if you're a self starter, who perhaps fancies doing something good with others, this might be worth a trip if you have a few pennies to spare....
