Région: AlaskaWe live remote on the island of Kodiak Island Alaska at a decommissioned cannery that is only accessible by float plane or boat. My husband and I live on the property which is 29 coastal acres year round and own and operate several businesses from our unique spot; the main business we run is an Eco-Friendly company that uses Alaskan fishing line and re-purpose it into durable hand-woven, knotted, rope items such as doormats, pot holders, curtain tie backs, coasters, rope letters and signs and so much more. We are on the Essential mail service which allows us to sell our goods online and mail them every week. In the summer the mail service is twice a week and in the winter only once a week. We are trying to keep the old cannery buildings from falling into the ocean so there is about a 360 degree view of things to do here--but it never feels like work because of your surroundings and the views. Breathtaking is an understatement. Otters, whales, foxes, bears and just a few of the things that you will see while here. We need help with just basic "grunt" work around camp.

For the next summer season starting mid of May 2015 we are looking for a couple or two friends for a minimum of 6 weeks each.

We need somebody who is able to replace us once a week for one or two days, when the business is low. These persons should be able to communicate with people in English. It would be perfect if you are able to speak a little bit of German, but this is not really necessary. She/He should be reliable and work independently. Also we need help in the daily business, mainly in the mornings. Cleaning the rooms and preparing the breakfast. This position is ideal for a couple or two friends who like to take a time off of the stress of a city to enjoy the Winter in the mountains. Thank you very much for your application in advance.

Région: KarnatakaEvery child has the right to grow up in a safe environment. Unfortunately in India that's not always the case, especially when one is disabled. Many children who are disabled in India end up on the streets and they have to beg for money to survive. That’s why we build our children's home, to make a difference. We are a home for children who are differently abled India. The foundation has just moved to a new place and now there is place for 25 children. At the moment there are 18 children, but this can change any day, as more people learn from the existence, more children are applying. The new place, is very green, has a beautiful garden where the kids can play, they have their own bed, there is enough space for different teaching areas and the kids can enjoy their life like any other child. The children follow a daily schedule, which includes, teaching ( very basic), music, yoga, crafts and playing. The children get speech and physiotherapy, we try to give them the best education possible. We ask a lot from you, because we really are a ‘school’ now and that means that you have to teach the children. When the children's home was still run by an Indian headmaster in from 2001 until 2007, the children suffered a lot, they were beaten and abused daily. But since 2007 Shobha and Maartje from the Netherlands took over and are managing the children's home in a different way. The children are happy and will win a place in your heart for sure. They make you smile every minute and forget all your trouble. They will love you like their own sister or brother. Working with these kind of children gives you happiness inside. But it’s hard work and because it takes time to know the children, we advise you to stay at least 2 months and having experience with differently abled children or adults (especially in teaching them ) is a must.
