    Description

    Hello, dear workaway volunteer!

    Greetings from sunny Puglia,

    I am Valeria, I have a master's degree in international relation and now I am a mom of a small - 8 months old baby girl.
    With my husband and my baby child we are living in Poggiardo (LE) south Italy.

    Poggiardo is a small town in down Lecce province, very safe and calm. With my family, we are living in a house and we can provide you a well welcoming, private room with a bathroom and exit to the upstairs kitchen.

    Even me, even my husband are people that enjoy being surrounded by new cultures, discover new ways of living. We are people that have intercultural understanding, tolerance, and empathy that we acquired during our work because our work is always engaged with travel.

    Since we are living in Poggiardo a small town, we want to provide to our child the possibility to be surrounded by multiculturalism from a young age.

    We are looking for a volunteer female (preferable) that has a background in psychology, pedagogy. education in general, and experience with working with kids.

    Your tasks as a volunteer will be
    taking out, holding the baby, going to the supermarket, keep clean the spaces for the baby, sometimes going to finish some administrative tasks for the family (going to the post office and similar).

    We are offering you a:
    - room with a private bathroom,
    - exit to the upstairs kitchen to cook by yourself
    - food money (150 euro per month, which is enough because the standard is low in our place)
    - possibility to discover Puglia and the traditional Italian culture that you can find only in the south part of Italy,
    - enjoy the sea (only 5 km from Poggiardo)
    - meet new people and learn the Italian language and Lecce dialetto

    Be sure that as a volunteer, you will be accepted and included in our family, and though it is the local society. We will include you in our family lunches and dinners, taking part of birthdays and holidays festive. As well you can interact with the local society of Poggiardo because the people are very warm and want to know about the other cultures as well.
    This possibility is for a long period of time of 6 months with a chance to be extended.

    We are waiting for your applications :)

    Saluti
    Valeria, Matteo, and baby Eva
