Hello there! My name is Marketa (24) and I’m living in the eastern part of the Czech Republic - Beskydy mountains, not far to the Slovak border. I work in the forrest kindergarden - kind of alternative respectful pre-education, where kids are in the close touch with nature.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Alternative pre-education experience
Permaculture garden, wood, cleaning, cooking, maintaining around my house
Forrest kindergarden - there is always a lot to do. You can help with maintaining around the small house, some cleaning, work with wood, help with the permaculture garden and of course play with kids - I would do one day when you would tell them something about you and your country, maybe cook something special. I would translate of course :) it all depends on you, what you feel like. You can also try to teach kids english or any other skill you think you could share.
Maybe some time spent with disabled people, if you want this kind of experience - my mom runs a non-profit organisation, which organizes trips, funny weekends and kind of “kindergarden” for mentally disabled people (13-40 yo) - you could join us for a weekend and participate on the program, get in touch with these ever-loving people and have interesting experience. It’s not about the work as much as about the experience :) again - depends on you.
First you would have to stay in the living room or tent and when you help me to manage another room (takes 1-2 days), you can stay there. There is just some mess as an old TV, mattrasses - I need to put them away, it’s not much work. Maybe I will manage it before you arrive.
The veg food at home will be provided, we will switch at cooking.
