    Hi!
    We are a travelling family living in Granada, we have two daughters, a three year old and a two year old one. We want our children to grow up surrounded by international experiences. We are looking for a person to share some family time with us. We live close to Granada's city centre, in a house we have just moved in. It has a patio and a space for a vegetable garden. We need to work both in the inside and the outside of the house. We can offer
    a private room to the person volunteering. We are both working as teachers so we offer Spanish and/or English classes as well as our home and 1 meal per day.

    We are looking for someone with mixed abilities, who is interested in construction, painting and gardening, but who can also cook and clean the house. Everyone does everything at home. And the most important thing, you need to love little children, as they can be very happy, but they also cry 😊.

    WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO SPEND WINTER IN GRANADA (2-3 MONTHS), WHO LOVES CHILDREN AND IS WILLING TO LOOK AFTER THEM (10 hours per week babysitting). 20 hours per week in total in exchange of accommodation, breakfast and lunch.

    Hola!
    Somos una familia de viajeros de España y Colombia. Hemos usado workaway como voluntarios en nuestro viaje por América Latina. Ahora, nos gustaría que nuestras hijas crecieran en un ambiente internacional, por lo que buscamos personas que quieran compartir un poco de tiempo con nosotros. Acabamos de mudarnos a una casa cerca del centro de Granada, con patio y un espacio para hacer un jardín / huerto. Estamos en proceso de reconstrucción, decoración y creación del jardín. El/la voluntario/a tendrá su propia habitación y baño. Somos profesores, así que ofrecemos clases de Ingles y/o Español, además de alojamiento y comida. Buscamos a personas a las que les gusten mucho los niños. Nuestras hijas tienen 3 y 2 años. Ellas van al cole por las mañanas, pero dos veces en semana nosotros trabajamos por la tarde, entonces el/la voluntario/a tendrá que cuidarla.

    Buscamos a alguien versátil, que le guste la construcción y el jardín, pintar y decorar, pero también limpiar y cocinar. Todos hacemos de todo acá. Y lo más importante, que le gusten mucho los niños porque a veces lloran 😊

    EN ESTOS MOMENTOS ESTAMOS BUSCANDO ALGUIEN PARA 2 - 3 MESES A QUIEN LE GUSTEN LAS PLANTAS Y QUIERA CUIDARLAS DURANTE EL VERANO. 2 HORAS DE TRABAJO AL DÍA 5 DÍAS A LA SEMANA A CAMBIO DE ALOJAMIENTO.

It's important that you also like cooking and don't mind cleaning, since in this Workaway you'll do a bit of everything.

    Estamos construyendo un jardín / huerto, que ahora necesita que lo riegue mucho y que le saquen la maleza.
