  • Description

    I love travelling and meeting new people. Not only that, I love to keep busy so lying on the beach is not my thing, Would much prefer to be helping someone with their dreams and life goals.
    I am pretty flexible with working as I have volunteered a lot around the world already.
    I am a vegetarian but happy to be around meat eaters while cooking and eating.
    I have experience of website and social media updating.
    I have a full driving licence. Available until whenever as I have left my work as a charity fundraiser to explore the parts of the world I have not seen yet.
    thanks
    Alison

  • More details about your skills

    I have volunteered in many places around the world. I have WWOOFED in Japan and Portugal, built schools in Peru, rescued wild animals in South Africa, rescued cats and dogs in Thailand and helped orphans and elders in Sri Lanka. I love to travel the world but at the same time to help others in need. I love learning new things and meeting new people who share the same ideals as I do.
