unterwegs auf Reisen
We (Joachim & Jolien) are a young couple, living together for the past 5 years.
We studied together at Ghent University from 2012-2017, and moved to Brussels for work afterwards.
During our studies we started volunteering for different local organisations:
- Jolien assisted in organising events to boost local, young entrepreneurs.
- Joachim assisted in offering strategic advice to local non-profit organisations to tackle socio-economic problems.
In 2017, we volunteered together in Cape Town's townships (South-Africa) where we taught in the schools.
After 2.5 years being professionally active in several companies, we will take some time off to volunteer in a peaceful place.
We are a positive, open-minded couple dedicated to support our hosts' projects.
In exchange, we would love to learn new skills and widen our world-view.
We are good communicators in three languages: Dutch (native), English (fluent), French (upper-intermediate).
Jolien has some basic Spanish and Joachim is taking some time to learn it as well.
Through our education and professional experience, we have developed strong analytical and interpersonal skills, but we would love to offer help in the following areas as well:
- marketing & social media
- general help in b&b (reception, breakfast, etc.)
We are open-minded and learn fast, so it's not an exhaustive list.
This is what we helped our past Hosts with:
- construction (painting, building, landscaping, etc.)
- gardening (irrigation system maintenance, sowing, landscaping, swimming pool maintenance , etc.)
- cooking vegetarian or vegan tasty food on a daily basis (even non-vegetarians compliment us)
- online marketing (social media, content creation, website creation, etc.)
- teaching & babysitting ("24/7" presence during the lockdown for a 5-year old girl)
