Area: Lower BavariaHello! My name is Karen and live with my 4 children and my animals (horses, dogs and cats and two cows) in a ranch not far from Passau, which is worldwide known as "The Three Rivers City", in the region called Lower Bavaria, one of the most charming areas of Germany. We are a small, family-run horse ranch specialized in the therapeutic field, outdoor (adventure and experiential) education and all that deals with coaching, the horse taking the role of a co-trainer. It is a very variable and interesting work with children and adults. Furthermore, we offer carriage rides and also the (adequate) transportation of horses. If you would like to work with horses, to learn more about them – and about yourself! – then you have found the right place. Sometimes the work can be hard, because of cleaning stables or building, so you should have the right attitude to work hard! We look forward to meeting you, no matter if you are rather manually skilled or prefer to take care of the household, garden and/or stable. I am sure that there is something for each one of you! you will be part of our family so we prefer people who want to stay for more than 2 weeks. it will take you a few days to figure out how everything goes and to get used to the daily ranch work so it is definitely better if you want to stay for a longer period. My daughters (20 and 11years old) and sons (age 15 and 18) will also enjoy your company. you will have a lot of fun with us because we are a lively family with lots of different interests and hobbies you are more than welcome to join in. The region offers very many leisure time activities, e.g. swimming, mountain biking, climbing, canoeing, etc. But of course there is also the possibility to discover our beautiful university town Passau, which is only 15 min away. Munich, the enchanting Bavarian capital, is approx. 160 km away and very easily accessible by train. We offer you full board and accommodation in an apartment with shower and toilet, plenty of fun …and surely an unforgettable stay! You can communicate with us in English, French and – of course – in German. We rely on your honesty, your vitality and strong motivation in supporting an exciting project. We only take non-smoker because of the kids and animals!!! we are looking forward to your message and hopefully see you soon on our beautiful horse ranch!
Area: AndaluciaWe live in Sevilla for several years. Also we have lived abroad for ten years. We are very agreeable, and kind people. My wife works in a hospital a little far from Sevilla and she comes at home on weekends. She is also a yoga teacher. We need people wishing to stay at Sevilla for several weeks or months helping us to maintain our garden (100 m2) in good conditions and to support in the cleaning of the house. We prefer people that are open minded, friendly, clean and a bit organized. Who understand that someone’s home is not a hotel and like to share with or help out others. We have 3 rooms available in our house and sometimes we receive tourists as we have our rooms in a holiday rental system. We have 3 daughters. We are supporting the educations and initial jobs of two of our older daughters in USA and Southamerica respectively. Our younger daughter is studying in the University (not in our town). She have studied in a High School in Ireland. Our house is in a very quiet neighbourghood at Mairena del Aljarafe, but very close to a metro station "Ciudad Expo", at 10 minutes of Sevilla center (by metro) . It is very comfortable for the sleep and taking care of personal business. Being close to a beautiful city it is easy to come and go by Metro. We like many sports, hiking, skiing, sailing, kayaking, paddle, swimming, walking, etc.

Area: Nairobi KenyaWe are a non-profit making Community Based Organization registered in Nairobi Kenya offers support to orphans and vulnerable children in slums area of Nairobi. The organization supports selected families with basic needs supply, fight drug and substance abuse in the community and distribute sanitary towels to needy girls in slums. Our organisation was established in 2009 with Former Street boy Erick as a give back gesture to the society for having survived the tough time in slum dwelling, street living and then eventually rescued and rehabilitated in children's home. In slum, where most people live below the poverty line, children’s education takes back seat. Poverty, underdevelopment, mass illiteracy, ignorance, rural backwardness and conservatism cause a majority of children in slums to be deprived of their basic right to education. Various other social problems such as child marriage, trafficking and discrimination leads toward the undermining of children’s right to Education. In this scenario, our organisation has been trying to ensure orphans and vulnerable children in slums have been provided with education support.
Area: Lalitupur, Kathmandu Valley and Sauhara, ChitwanLong story short, my husband and I co-founded a center for impoverished children, in 1995. Since then we have provided food, shelter, and education for over 1,000 children. Currently, we have 18 children, aged 5 years to 18 years. Some of their favorite things to do are drawing, jumping rope, playing football, dancing, and watching movies (Bollywood, Nepali, Korean...everything and anything really). They also have a special fondness for Michael Jackson, and some can even mimic his dance routines! :)
