  • Description

    Description

    Hi, my name is Fabio. I have been leaving in Senegal since 2005. I am the founder of a socio-cultural association and artistic director of a traditional music and dance festival. We are multicultural, trilingual (french, wolof, italien) and would love to share our lives and cultures with you.
    With my wife Fatima, and our 3 children, we manage a hostel in the pleasant neighborhood of Yoff 50m from the most beautiful beach in Dakar.
    In addition to the work of the hostel, we are very busy with the activities of our association which currently deals mainly with creating a socio-cultural center with an attached agro biological farm. This is why we are always looking for partners who can support us.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Come share our live style in a real African city. We are multicultural, trilingual (french, wolof, italien) and would love to share our lives and cultures with you. You will get to know the Senegalese culture mixed with the Italian one. If you want you can get closer to traditional music and dance but also to the Wolof language, the first language spoken in all of Senegal.

  • Help

    Help

    The Workawayers will be asked to help 5 hours a day for 5 days a week which may include weekends.
    Fluent French is a "must".
    There is some flexibility to the times of help, and this can be discussed once an application has been received. A minimum commitment to helping of one month is usually required, along with a flexible attitude.
    Our ideal workawayer is an extroverted person, with a good ability to relate to people, pragmatic, enthusiastic and who knows how to identify needs at any pre-established moment without waiting for him to be always told what to do.
    Often there is not much work to do, so good experiences in the IT field are desirable to improve the visibility of our structure, but also a creative person who can help us decorate our home in an original way, or someone with the passion of photography
    The help which is required will be varied, and may include any or all of the following:
    Cleaning the hostel, deep cleaning of rooms, (or help with local staff management), painting, decorating and general maintenance, gardening, basic administrative tasks, receptioning guests, interacting with guest willing to talk, go to shopping in the local markets, help in social projects, helping in making advertising and posting pictures in our social networks page facebook and instagram, help with the kids (3, 8 and 11 yers old), chat to improve English when the workawayer is a native English speaker
    No previous experience is needed, but if you have any particular talents we can use, they will be put to good use.
