  • Description



    My name is Barbara. I live close to Montevideo in a beautiful part of Uruguay *El pinar, next to a river (2 minutes walk) and not far from the beach (15 minutes walk). I live together with my 10 year old son Sahel in a house which I’ve built myself with help of some volunteers. I could recieve someone with experience in building, electricity, carpinter, painting, etc who helps finish off the project. I live in a really nice, quiet and relaxing neighbourhood next to the river Pando. There’s the river and forest very close by and the sea. The exchange will include food and accommodation for around 5 hours a day. Flexibility with work hours is best. I will be working and studying most of the day so your help is really appreciated!

    I like to eat healthy and provide at least three meals a day. I’ve some space in my house for sleeping indise but in sommer is nice to sleep in tend outside in the Graden. The neighbourhood I live in is famous for artist residents and there are many projects going on like Music and Art Workshops, events, festivals. Every Saturday there is a Circle of drummers playing candombe around a fire. If you’re keen to help with building projects and want to know about peoples life here please feel free to contact me and we can have a chat.

    I am looking for a person who knows about electricity, carpentry, painting, etc. to finish the project that I started 4 years ago.
    I live in a very nice neighbourhood, close to the pando stream. We are very close to the dunes of the creek and the forest, also close to the sea. The exchange includes food and accommodation for 5 hours of work per day. Being flexible with work schedules is good. I will be working and studying so your help would be appreciated!

    Hopefully see you soon Barbara!
