  • Description


    Somos un pareja Colombiana y Italiano viviendo cerca una pueblito en los montañas de caldas. Tenemos una segunda casita en el pueblo donde hospedamos voluntarios. Buscamos ayuda enseñando inglés a Leny y ayudando Andrea con construcción de varios proyectos. Solo queremos gente responsables en quien podemos tener confianza a dejar en nuestro casa en filadelfi solos. Si te vas a quedar más de un mes puedes quedar solo o invitar otra personas a tu gusto. Queremos que los voluntarios cuiden bien la casita y dejar lo más limpio de cuando entran. Los voluntarios son responsables por sus propio comida, papel higiénico y servicios.

    Seria genial si tienes tu perfil inglés a hacernos un introduction en español explicando que puedes contribuir y qué habilidades tienes.

    Todos que vienen tienen que limpiar todo la casa, incluyendo el suelo, la cocina y el baño en la ultimo dia antes de tu salida. No importa si estas aquí dos días o un mes.

    Leny es un persona muy alegre, divertida y activa. Andrea es un tipo relajado. Nos gusta conocer gente buena y relajado de alrededor del mundo.

    Filadelfia es un lugar muy bonito, tranquilo y seguro.

    We are a Colombian and Italian couple living near a small village in the mountains of Caldas. We have a second small house in the village where we host volunteers. We are looking for help teaching Leny and assisting Andrea with the construction of several projects. We just want responsible people whom we can trust to leave in our house in the village alone. If you are going to stay more than a month you can stay alone or invite other people to your liking. We want the volunteers to take good care of the house and to leave it as clean as it comes in. The volunteers are responsible for their own food, toilet paper and bills.

    It would be great if you have your English profile to make us an introduction in Spanish explaining that you can contribute and what skills you have.

    Everyone who comes in has to clean the entire house, including the floor, kitchen and bathroom on the last day before your departure. It does not matter if you are here two days or a month.

    Leny is a very cheerful, fun and active person. Andrea is a laid back guy. We like meeting good and relaxed people from around the world.

    Philadelphia is a very nice place, quiet and safe.

    We have a little house in the village independent of us. It is small without divisions between kitchen, living room and sleeping places. The volunteers live there alone but we like to socialize with our volunteers and share meals and talks.
