  • Description

    Hi! :)

    We are an English couple and were travelling in South America earlier this year, but had to head home due to covid! We were stuck in Bolivia for 5 months and were lucky to get home! And got to see most of the country plus Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, but had planned to work with a women's charity through workaway in Peru. In 2016/17 we went travelling in Asia and worked in guest houses, farms and in hospitality.

    This time I am planning to use workaway without Matt, who will be working at home. I am really passionate about the plight of refugees and would love to learn what I can and continue working with them in the future. I am currently in the UK but plan to fly to a workaway host in the new year.

    I am hard-working, keen and positive, and excited to get stuck in! My main work experience is with various human charities, including ones for the homeless, and my last job in the UK was as a Project Coordinator for a children's charity. I have a degree in Anthropology and am really passionate about helping others and learning all I can about organisations that work for disadvantaged people.
