  • Description


    Single dad, I look for someone who can assist (quite minimally) with childcare with my youngest son (7yo).
    The expected work is modest enough to allow you to fit a part-time job on the side (even on the Swiss side with the possibility of very decent income).
    I'm very easy-going and hope to find people happy to spend some time with us.
    The house is located in a village just outside of Geneva so you can enjoy both the countryside feel and the city vibe.
    I'm more interested in people willing to stay at least 2-3 months.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our family is multicultural and very opened to the world.
    I'm quite handy and can teach various type of DIY. I'm starting to prepare my own van so I can teach you what I'm learning in the process.
    I'm into community-led projects (local currencies, co-housing projects) and can share a lot about these topics.
