    We are building- step by step- a new daily reality for the children we take care of. I was a workaway host during 12 years of working in the same field in the Netherlands, 1 year in The Gambia and 2 years in Germany.

    A collective of professionals is setting up an International Early Years ِEducation Center in Luanda, Angola.
    We love meeting new people and work towards accomplishing this collective goal.

    I have a rich working experience in community development, community art and have already set up a kindergarten in the Gambia.

    We are particularly interested in people who speak Portugese and Engels or German. But even if you do not speak Portugese, but you are a Childcare or Teaching professional or Artist/Musician or Permaculture Gardener…. If you have experience of working creatively with children, we are interested to hear from you.

    We are planning to have chickens and goats, great if you are part of the team that takes care of them.

    Its a fast WiFi connection, but at times the connection is not stable, just like water- which sometimes stops for a day. However Luanda is a modern city with plenty of places to access internet in generally.
