Région: CaribbeanI am chairman of an organization which administers a homeless shelter and rehabilitative day program in Port Antonio, Jamaica. The shelter, Portland Rehabilitation Management (PRM), is an NGO providing shelter, food, medicine, and other rehabilitative services to the homeless. We currently serve 15-20 clients, (roughly one third of the marginalized homeless population of Port Antonio), who have been socially displaced often due to many of the following factors: • Mental Health Issues (mostly schizophrenia and bipolar disorder) • Physically Debilitating Condition • HIV/AIDS • Drug Use Disorder • Displacement resulting from ex-offender or deportee status or circumstance. • Abuse or Exploitation We are an NGO charged by the Portland Parish Council, to develop, fund and administer a rehabilitation program for the homeless persons of the parish of Portland. Our aims are: 1. To meet the basic needs of the homeless persons in Portland; for shelter, food, clothing and medical care. 2. To deliver a Day Time Rehabilitation Program to empower our clients with social and independent living skills and opportunities. 3. Reduce the number of homeless and socially displaced persons in Portland. Current projects: building a female dormitory, expanding the garden, building a chicken coop We would welcome any volunteers with experience in the health field, especially in medical and psychiatric care. In particular we could use volunteers with experience in substance abuse counselling, motivational interviewing and recreational therapy. Other helpful experiences include but are not limited to marketing, NGO development, fundraising, and farming. If you feel that you have certain skills (personal or professional) that could benefit the shelter, you are more than welcome as long as you are compassionate, willing to work with marginalized populations, and have good interpersonal skills.
Région:I am urgently looking for a young and responsible girl who could take care of my 4 years old boy Max after school for the summer (July and August and if possible June as well but not a must). We live in the South of Turkey (Bodrum) in the nature and only 5 minutes away from the beach, we are French natives but also speak English and German.
Région: GraubündenHi We are a family of five with 3 boys (10, 11 and 13 years old). We live in the eastern county of Graubünden near Chur, the oldest city in Switzerland. Our home is located in the centre of the small village of Zizers, about an hour by train from Zurich and a ten minute drive from Chur. The town is located in the countryside, with public transport right next to our house connecting to surrounding towns. My family owns a small farm and vineyard on the outside of the town where the boys like to help out on when they are not busy playing ice hockey. In our spare time when the boys are not playing hockey we also enjoy cycling, hiking, street hockey, swimming and skiing. There is a lot to keep you busy around here, there are lots of bike and walking trails up in the mountains behind the village with some breath taking views. There is a ski resort only ten minutes drive from the town which is also great for hiking trails in the summer time, as well as a train station in town connecting you to places all over Switzerland. We prefer native english or italian speaking volunteers, to be able to help our boys practice and continue learning both of the languages. We ideally would like female, non smokers.
Région: Scotland**WE HAVE DECIDED TO HOLD OFF ON TAKING WORKAWAYERS UNTIL 2015** This is due to us not being able to provide a level of accommodation we are happy with this year, we are working on improving the accommodation. Enquiries are welcome from January 2015 onwards. We are Scotland's first ever chilli farm and currently the most most Northerly chilli farm in the UK - possibly Europe! We are a family run food and art venture that is expanding all the time. Carl grows all our chillies in our chilli tunnels and takes care of our current farm expansion project. Tricia turns all the chillies into lovely chilli food products. Finally Stacey runs a fused glass workshop creating chilli inspired glass gifts.
Région: TuscanyHello! I am George and I come from the UK. I have been maintaining this rural ex-farmhouse in this beautiful national park here in Tuscany since 2006. Normally i live with my girlfriend Ava and her son Aron, but this summer i am alone working on my farmhouse in Italy...and i need help! I'm an outgoing social person. I like nature, music, gardening, building things, and i like sharing good times with people. I enjoy the crazyness of life and the challenges that it gives me, and i always try to turn the hard times into lessons to develop and progress. Together with friends and occasional visiting family members we manage a small veggi garden and take care of the farmhouse called Casalino. In the summer months i host various retreats so need help preparing for this. I am interested in 'Living off grid' and living in harmony with nature. I use workaway because i always need loads of help, but also because i love hanging out with interesting people from all over the world. About the place..... Casalino is in an incredible part of Tuscany which is considered the "Hidden Tuscany'. In contrast to the rolling hills, vine yards and the olive groves of classic Tuscany, here it is much wilder and mountainous and we are surrounded by lush forests. This old farmhouse is situated in an area in the north-east of Tuscany called the Casentino, close to the border of Emilia Romagna, in Italy. The house literally in the middle of the woods and is perched on the side of Mount Montopoli and overlooks the stunning view of the Valle Santa. It lies within the national park of Monte Falterona and Campigna. The many footpaths leading through woods, fields and rivers covering the mountains makes it a pleasure to explore the environment. Being so submersed in wilderness away from civilization, it very much creates a feeling of retreat or escape from day to day ´normal´ life. Reached by an old stone road only accessible on foot and by a 4x4 vehicle. We invite you to come and stay with us between these dates... from April 22nd to September 2014
