    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am sure anyone can learn a lot from us – how to make a perfect coffee, draw a mindmap, find a box full of toys in a forest, how to extend a short walk into some real challenge or how to wash your hair without a shampoo: ) We can learn Polish, talk about geocaching, the history of our region, to show monuments, nature reserves, local attractions. We are also very social life and certainly you will know many interesting people. We are happy also to share our knowledge and experience we have as parents and professionals in our fields (Kosta miner and Mirela is a teacher).
    In the neighborhood there are two other families hosting volunteers, so there is opportunity to meet other volunteers and joint tours

  • Help


    Homeschooling takes us a lot of time, which and so we have little with three children. We need help with the children, at home and in the garden. To help with the children, we would like volunteers to: play with the children, spoke English or any other language (not Polish). In the house we will treat volunteers as family members and we will endow his duties as the other (cleaning, assisting in the preparation and clean up after meals, shopping etc.). In the garden we have a lot of work with trees, shrubs and lawn.
