  • Description


    We are a Latvian family with two adults and 3 young children. Need a helping hand at our home and support with taking care of children. We are both musicians and music teachers (classical guitar, singing.) hobbies:table tennis, movies, bicycles.
    We have a lot of experience with hosting people from other countries, because we also have our own organization-society for young musicians and we have been organizing a lot of international projects such as youth exchanges and European Voluntary service within our organization. But this is the first time we have decided to host someone privatly to make a difference in our family life.
    Our children are 3 and 5 year old girls and almost 8 years old boy. We are friendly, simple and open-minded.
    We own a privat music school, and our futures biggest dream is to renovate an old building that we own, to move our school to our own premises (instead of renting.) So we are seeking a balance between raising kids, teaching music, building school..
    We have had several great workaway hosting experiences; everyone has added something valuable to our family.
