Area: TuscanyWe live near Lucca, Tuscany - our house has 4 hectares of land. We are looking for help with clearing of the woods and general work with the olive trees etc. Also looking for someone to build a couple of garden walls etc - so some basic building skills would be a great plus! We are an English couple who live and work in Tuscany all year round - we have an estate agency in Lucca. Our 15 year old daughter is at home during the school holidays. Our house is 30 mins from Lucca and we have a lovely big swimming pool (120 sqm) in very pretty surroundings. We have a wide circle of friends who we socialize with a lot; love good food (Tuscan and international!) and wine. We have three cats - who live mostly outside - but are still very spoilt boys! Do send me an email if you feel you could help us out!
Area: Kathamandu - Dallu awas (near Monkey Temple)Access to education is not granted to every child in Nepal. Our team aims at providing a partial remedy to that unfortunate situation by offering proper nutrition, a comfortable lodging and a tuition to children from the Ganesh and Lantang area at no cost to the family. Even though our government has made significant progress in the last decade to build new schools throughout the country, the lack of formal teachers in many rural districts of Nepal is a major obstacle for children to access education. On that matter, the Ganesh and the Langtang regions – about 120 km north of Kathmandu – have not been favored. Only a small fraction of the children can buy their places in the few schools that have been established. We are presently hosting five children, all coming from different families, in the hope of giving them a chance to have a better future and, at the same time, fulfilling their parent’s most sacred wish. Our organization lives on donations from individual sponsors and your help, even if not pecuniary, is of great worth to us and to the children. Being away from their family undoubtedly affects the children, but knowing that some people care for them and put great efforts in their success is of an invaluable comfort. Everyone staying with us will experience the Nepalese culture, will have the opportunity to learn a little bit of the language and get a glimpse of the lifestyle and the traditions of Nepal. You will also be able to build your own judgement regarding Nepal's education system. We provide a safe environment to the children and to the volunteers in order for them to fully appreciate their stay.

Area: EnglandI live with my 2 children, age 5 and 8. We live about 100m from the water in a very pretty seaside village in Devon. We love the outdoors - the beach and nature reserve is right on the doorstep, with some fabulous cliff and beach walks nearby. The different tides, seasons and weather mean that the views are always constantly moving and changing. I love running, yoga, walking, gardening. Hoping to get into surfing at some stage, as it's apparently very good for surfing here. I like to eat fairly simple, healthy food, and don't drink much. But I do enjoy the numerous local pubs, with all their live music.
