  • Description

    Description

    We are an unschooling family seeking help with refurbishment of our flat and with child care.
    There are 7 of us, Martin (46), Zdenka (40), four boys (12, 10, 7 and 4) and a baby girl living in a nice neighbourhood in Prague. Martin is a sociologist and Zdenka works as a translator and interpreter of English and French. We have chosen a lifestyle of unschooling, which means that our children do not go to school, follow their passions and learn incessantly through living.

    We inherited an old apartment where we live in at the moment, but it still needs some refurbishing. We would like to welcome workawayers who could help with various refurbishing works in the house and mainly with the kids - share their passions and interests with them, play with them, talk to them. If you are into gaming, anime, superheroes or fighting, you will be their hero:).

    A few years ago, we travelled as workawayers to France and Italy as a family and as it was a great experience, thaat is why we decided to host other workawayers in times when we do not travel ourselves. We think that meeting new and interesting people is so beneficial to our children, everyone has so much to offer. We want the opportunity for our children (as well as for us, the parents) to meet various adults with various passions, interests, and backgrounds.

  • Help

    Help

    We are looking for joyful, passionate and positive people who would enrich our lives.
    More down-to-earth, we need help with the refurbishment works, as well as someone to spend time with the children, introducing them to their hobbies, passions, culture, simply making their lives rich and joyful. General help at home or cooking would also be appreciated.
    At the moment, the bathroom is already usable, but not finished. We have two habitable rooms, the rest is functional, but partly old and ugly, though sanitary (toilet). Water, electricity, heating with no problem.
    We can welcome up to two workawayers at a time (but very modest ones) as the apartment is really small and there are lots of us. One would probably be ideal. Still, it will be a bit noisy and crowded, to not come if you love silence and a lot of personal space most of the day.
