  • Description


    At the moment we are looking more for short term coming people who give us a hand during the day that love to meet handicapped people and do things with us together.

    Our projekt for people with just hard body handycaps living in a normal flat toether- having their own assistance.
    you would eat and live with them and their dogs and have fun together in a wonderful old house in the middle of a city center with a wonderfiul garden.
    helping in the household, garden, driving, help to repair or do praktical things like painting

    we love crazy open minded people who love to meet handycapded young girls.

    If we end up with you stay longer you can visit an official german course (check BBL Sprachschule Essen- that s where most of the others went)
    here from you , maria

    Would you like to stay at least 5 month? (If you just around in the area for a short stay- contact me- may me I´ve got other work to do)
    Do you have a driving license?

    If you´are good in repairing things- wonderful.

    Our place is the good place to take part in an "officialy" German-course- There are intensive 3 hour-Trainings close to the University (20 minutes by bike). exspecialle if you are a couple: You would be able to visit a course in the morning and the other person in the afternoon, so you could share the work and be flexible. you would have time of enough to learn.
