  • Description

    Description

    We are young, relaxed family of 4 children living in Limbe, Malawi. Children are 3, 9, 10 and 12 years old. Older children are homeschooled while the youngest ones go to school near by. All children speak English. The children are loud, outgoing, social and curious, they will make you laugh and drive you nuts.

    We live in a local (working class) neighborhood, Makheta, which is 10min bus drive away from Limbe city centre and 30min bus drive away from Blantyre. Buses leave just at our doorstep. Makheta is lively place with kiosks, market, local restaurants and bars and all possibly small businesses. In Limbe and Blantyre you can find fancy hotels with restaurants, cafes and swimming pools.

    We are green family, we are vegetarians, we have our own garden. We recycle as much as possible and have compost toilet. We dont have electricity at the moment either, working on getting the solar panels (we have solar lights though).
    You will have your own spacious, cosy room with own entrance and bathroom.

    Traveller will be exposed to a typical township life of Malawians. You will get to know local markets, way of living and local people. From Limbe you can easily travel to the lakeshore, mount Mulanje, Thyolo tea plantation, Zomba forest..
    We can arrange visits to local orphanage, slum, school.. You can always have days off for travelling.

    We are looking for someone who could help children with school things (mathematics especially, teaching any language apart from English would be great bonus) few hours weekday mornings. Our maid will cook lunch, dinner and clean, so that would not be your task.

    Your day would start around 8am and run til 1pm. Possibility to have long weekends off and travel around Malawi.

    We are not looking for a teacher (thou we dont mind if you are one), just someone who would like to explore Malawi, spend some time (either weeks or months - we are flexible) with our family and who could bring something extra into our family.

    We are flexible accommodating 2 people (there is a bunk bed in the guest room) but then only providing breakfast and lunch (half board)
