Hi, my name is Kia and I live in Aljezur, on the southwest coast of the Algarve.
I have three kids: a girl (16) called Alea, and two boys (13 and 12) Max and Tobias.
I am looking for help with my two boys for the summer, from the 15th of June until the 15th of September, for 3 days a week, mainly from after lunch until the afternoon, for 4-5 hours, just going to the beach with them or playing ball, going on walks.
I also need help from the 24th of march until the 16th of april...
The boys both have a very rare genetic condition which characterizes by non-verbal communication and an intellectual and cognitive delay. They are both happy kids and easygoing and very used to being with other people around and I am actually hoping for a male helper for them, who can go to the beach with them and play ball and surf a bit because they love some proper physical activity that I cannot deliver.
A driver's license is needed.
Additionally, I need someone to help me sometimes with small house chores or handyman tasks, when the boys are at their father's place.
I have a small translation agency and run rentals, so I work from home.
During vacation time, they are with me for 3 weeks and then 1 week with the dad. So from the 15th of June until the 15th of September, they are with me almost all the time. During school time they are 21 days with the dad and 9 days with me.
I can offer you your own cozy apartment to live in and we can definitely share some meals, but mainly food would be on your own. I attached some pictures of the apartment to the folder.
I am looking preferably for a couple that could stay from the middle of June until the middle of September, in order to build a longer relationship, I think that would be more rewarding for all of us. But if you can only stay 1 month, that is also fine.

Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I am separated from their father, so the kids are 50% of the time with me and 50% of the time with their dad. When they are with me, I would need help with doing activities with them after lunchtime, maybe from 2 to 6 pm, while I work, and would also need some help with the house, cleaning, or smaller tasks, like gardening.
