  • Description


    I'm Kaouther (52) from Nabeul (Tunisia), where I created a shelter for stray dogs and cats 2 years ago, I have about 60 lovely animals (30 dogs, 25 cats and four turtles). The dogs have a big space to live and are in general calm and peaceful, even with the cats ;-). We provide them bigger seperate areas, where we give them food, water and if needed medicin. Every dog and cat have of course vaccination and there is a nice veterinare in Nabeul who helps us.

    I live in Nabeul near the center and Im everytime available all the time to help. I can show and help with friends to come easy from the capitol to my shelter. We buy a sim card and all you need to have a good stay here. For europen persons everything is very cheap (for example big pizza for 3€, public transport for 1,5€/h,....) It is so cheap because its supported by the government.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Tunesia is a great place with a unique nature, very fresh and tastfull vegetables and food in general. The people are very interested and hospitable. Tunesia is a mix of a lot of cultures (arabic, frensh, italian, maltese, berber,...) with a focuse on education. We have a lot of Universities - unfortunaly most people want to go to europe - so its good when we make a little exchange ;-). A vollunteer from Austria (Mario) we had said that the best of Tunesia are the very welcoming people, the great nature and weather as well as all you need is easy affordable

    It is important that the dogs have someone to go for a walk and to play with them. As well as giving water and crocets. Regularly cleaning the house will also keep not much time. I have an employee for half day. If you have a hand for tools that would be great to fix little problems with the fence, some doors and general maintenance. If you are more for IT you can help me to build up a youtube channel, fundraising side and so on.
    The most importand is that you have fun with your stay and motivated for new experieces :)
