    Hello Workaway,

    My name is Salem and I am looking for one or two people to help us work at our desert camp and village home.

    While working in the desert camp our duties include cooking and serving food, cleaning and general maintenance.

    While working at our village home duties include website management and editing, marketing, answering and booking tourists' inquires and reservations, and email correspondence.

    Ideally, we would like volunteers with strong English language skills and a basic knowledge of computers to help us with day-to-day operations, especially when I am out of the house.

    For compensation I provide lodging in my village home and food. During free time you may roam the desert at your leisure. If time and availability permits, you may join in on any tourist excursions, or spend a night with a Bedouin family in the desert and experience the Bedouin lifestyle. You would also be welcome to come out to our Bedouin family camp and interact with our camels :).
