Area: BavariaDear workawayers, please no more inquiries for this year at the moment. But you are wellcome to get in contact for next year. Please look at our calendar 2015. We live in a small village about 20 kilometers south of munich, very near to „Starnberger See“ and not too far from the alps. Although we live in the countryside and our village is pretty small, the next railway station for the train to munich (a 30 minutes trip) is only 2 kilometers away and easy to reach by bike - even by feet in about 20 minutes. Also the lake „Starnberger See“ is not far away and also reachable by bike for a swim. Our family are 4 persons: me (50, formerly marketing manager and riding teacher), my husband (55, farmer) and our two daughters (19 and 21 years and both students), who still live with us. We run a small alpaca farm and live with lots of animals, which are an important part of our life: around 30 alpacas (which we breed), 2 horses, a nice 2-year-old white shepard, cat, some guinnee pigs, chicken). Our pasture is about 3 hectare.
Area: Midi Pyrenees, South West France.Hi, my name is Dorian I'm 48 years old, dual national, half french and half English. I teach Tai Chi Chuan 3 days a week in Toulouse, South West France, where I have been living for the past 24 years. I have just acquired a house in the mountains, the previous owners called it a chalet... but i's not made of wood, it could also be called a "Grange" because they were originally used to keep animals and hay during the winter. The house faces a local (mystical) mountain called the "Cagire" and is a 10 minute drive from the lovely mountain town called Aspet in the French Pyrenees. The nearest town with a train station is called Saint Gaudens situated 15 Km away from Aspet.

A family run vineyard and horse stud located in the beautiful Hunter Valley just 1hr north west of Sydney, where we train Haflinger horses and grow Sangiovese-Brunello grapes.

Area: Southern ProvinceThis project is an international NGO in Zambia. The main venture of the organisation is a boarding school for blind and visually impaired children with and without multiple disabilities in the Southern Province of Zambia, close to Mazabuka town. It is the only school of this kind in whole Zambia. The project is the ambitious project of a young Austrian called Barbara, who is organising the school alone. The construction for the international boarding school has already started in 2009, anyway, it will still take some years, until everything is really complete according to the plans. Anyway, some of the main buildings got ready, so that the school could open in September 2011. At the moment there are around 20 pupils in all age groups, since the youngest boy, Jackson, is just 3 years old, and the oldest student, Nancy, is already 29 years old. The students are coming from all over Zambia and also some kids from South Africa would like to join the school. Almost all the kids have something in common: They did not get any proper education before joining, since there are no proper schools for them in Zambia. The school has, for example, a whole group of kids enrolled who came from a special unit at a public school, who spend over 10 years in this school without getting any single Mathematic lesson, taught by a teacher without teacher certificate. One girl was, for example, one term in a boarding school, where she did not bath the whole term, simply, because nobody assisted her. The girl is blind and also suffering from Cerebral Palsy, so she needs some assistance with some daily tasks. Two of the older girls are coming from villages, where they were only sitting at home before joining the school and some unruly boys were taking advantage of their blindness and raped them, so they have already children on their own.
