  • Beschreibung


    We are Gerben (54) and Ina (58) married, and about to return from Italy to Belgium. Gerben has worked as an Innovation Lead in Philips/Saeco in Italy and will start a new adventure in Philips Eindhoven. That means that we need help in our house in Zonhoven to make it home again after so many years living abroad.
    Our home is located in a quiet area, close to a nature reserve and to the university city of Hasselt. Ina is a writer and a writing coach, she has been awarded multiple times and has published over 10 titles, mostly coming- of-age novels. She wrote the script for the movie 'Little Black Spiders'.
    We are passionate about improving 'the world', more practical: to support young people in finding and realizing their ambitions. Motto: we make dreams come true.

    We have 4 kids, all living with their own family in Belgium and the Netherlands. Now we will need some help in maintaining our 6-bedroom house in Belgium and getting the garden in shape . In return Ina offers support in developing writing skills and materializing creative projects (for songs, novels, scripts, live stories, story telling) and Gerben coaches in personal development.

  • Arbeit


    We have identified 3 projects we would like to do with help of volunteers (not all together of course):
    1. To fully re-do our front garden, making it low on maintenance and pleasant to be in
    2. To restore the woodwork and repaint the house
    3. To renovate the garden shed
    For these projects we would welcome individual 'work awayers' as well as couples or friends travelling together.

  • Unterkunft


    We have a 6 bedroom house in which you will be most welcome and have your own private room(s), some with sink. We will share the bathroom. We would enjoy cooking together (Ina is a great chef, how about you?Learn the success of Belgian fries!), and sharing our meals. At the same time you will have privacy and time to finish your own projects. We love music, so for musical guests we have a piano, one drums, three guitars and other instruments.
