    Help

    We specifically would like help with our 9 year old son who has a learning disability, Asperger's and ADHD. His lack of the local language means he cannot attend school here so we homeschool him. This is proving difficult as we do not have the expertise. Therefore we are seeking a volunteer with the required qualifications to assist our son.

    We also require a reliable, honest and responsible volunteer for house sitting over the Christmas and New year period. Must be willing to feed and take care of a few animals.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are located in central Algarve and only 15 mins from the beach. The beautiful castle of historic Silves is also only 15 mins away. There is a train station very nearby so the whole of the south coast is accessible.
    We ourselves have travelled and volunteered in the past.
    We settled in the Algarve for an outdoor life with interests in permaculture, growing food and interesting trees and plants, complementary medicine, yoga and spirituality.
