    I am living and working in Rajasthan, India for three months and need someone to help around the house, childcare and home-schooling my 8 year old son. You will live with us and have a shared room in our rented house. It doesn't matter what nationality you are but you will need to have good English to help my son. You should also be fun, inspiring and be willing to get involved with our family life and Indian culture.

    You must love animals (I work for an animal welfare charity), children, and India and have a positive attitude. There will be opportunity for plenty of free time and short trips away to explore this amazing country. I have been visiting this area on an annual basis for 11 years, so I know the area well and have many contacts and friends. I will be working at a local animal charity.

    My son's particular strengths are maths, languages and music (he is learning guitar), he will have some regular school studies as well as 'life learning' through activities and experiences. He will be doing studies based on the English national curriculum and online learning. If you can help him with music, and any other skills you may have, that would be great. He loves Lego, puzzles and technology. He currently has a local tutor for maths.

    We are vegetarian, and would prefer a vegetarian helper (the town of Pushkar is vegetarian also). Don't mind if you smoke as long as not in the house or around my son.
    You will receive accommodation and shared meals in return for your help. We have a modern, private house a short walk from the main bazaar of Pushkar. You will be sharing a room with my colleague, an Anglo-Indian woman. We have a balcony and large rooftop. You must be responsible, conscientious and be able to provide references.

    Although we will require help for 3 months you do not need to come for the whole time. I would prefer a commitment of at least one month though to cause least disruption to my son's routine.

    If you have skils in social media, marketing, website design and seo, video production then these may alos be useful for the charity.

    Do get in touch if you would like to know more or have any questions.

    What else ...

    There will be opportunity to either accompany us on excursions and trips to places of interest, or to have some time off for yourself and experience other things the area has to offer. In Pushkar there are places to study yoga, dance, music, cooking, jewellery making and more.

    It is a very chilled out place with many foreign tourists, shops, cafes and restaurants.
