  • Description


    Ciao, we are a family of four: Mum and three girls. .
    We live in a small village 6 kilometres far from Lucca. We are peaceful and easygoing, the girls (13, 11 and 8 y.o.) love being with people and making new friends. Mum is on a wheelchair but she has got people coming to assist. I need help with the girls when they come back from school and during
    holidays . Our red house is in a "corte" or court in the countryside in a nice place that is calm and quiet. We have a little piece of land where we plant some vegetables. You can easily reach Ponte a Moriano train station, a little town 2km from our house by bike (we can provide it) or if you take the cycling lane you can easily reach Lucca in 25 minutes. Lucca is also connected by train and bus, several times a day.

  • Help


    I prefer an independent person full of energy, who is self confident, reliable and of course someone who loves children without being one of them. You should speak a bit of Italian to communicate with us four and with my
    Helpfully and nice parents who live next door to support me: the Super Nonni.
    Minimum volunteering period is one month to allow kids to get familiar with the workawayer.

    Anita Mora, 13 y.o., goes swimming twice a week, she reads a lot and she likes to stay with friends, she’s very curious therefore she asks lots of questions.
