  • Description


    I did volunteer work last year in South America which was a great cultural, language and knowledge exchange. It helped me as a volunteer and the hosts in many ways especially with work/ and accommodation exchanged. Now I am in need of volunteers to help with some small projects. I am a mature person , easy going, I have two adult children one lives downtown and the other in the suburbs. I would like to visit Japan, Russia and Eastern Europe in 2021. It would be nice to learn a language or two.
