    Spring/summer 2021 - help whit puppis.

    At the moment I am looking for volunteer helpers (not ones who expect pay in exchange for your help). You will be given a free place to stay and food while you are here. I could use a pair of extra hands for small projects, building, maintenance, renovation and wall painting, indoors cleaning and so on. Please tell us what your work preferences are and we will try to match that up with our needs (i.e. do you prefer inside or outside work). I need to translate some English text into different languages - especially Russian, Hindi, Arabic and Chinese, but also other languages
