  • Description

    I love nature and being and working outdoors. I am very keen to help in gardening, permaculture and sustainability projects. I work hard and am flexible. I adore walking and swimming, especially in rivers and the sea. I also love food and cooking and I ran a small cafe kitchen in Turkey once. I’d be very happy to cook for groups of volunteers or the public. I also love photography so would be happy to take photos to add to your website or profile.

    I have worked and travelled in South America for nine months and in Central America for three months so beginning to feel a little bit familiar with this vast continent!

    In England I work as a teacher trainer in a field of education known in the U.K. as "global learning". It is all the things I am passionate about like human rights, equality, social justice, sustainable development etc. I am also a qualified TEFL teacher (Teacher of English as a Foreign Language) and have taught for many many years. I am fluent in Spanish after living in Madrid for nearly 7 years and I also speak Turkish and French. I have been learning Quechua for several months and want the opportunity to improve it. I am a single parent and my daughter has now left home.

  • Autres infos...

    All plans are slightly provisional at the moment of course due to the pandemic BUT... my immediate plans are to spend some more time in Turkey improving my Turkish.
    Ultimately I would like to get back to South America and spend a few months back in Peru and/or Bolivia as I wish to learn more Quechua. I love working on projects outdoors in nature. I like to be with children and young people and I would be happy to provide occasional childcare or babysitting for a family, although would prefer not to be doing this every day. I may be older than many volunteers but I am fit and very healthy and very young at heart! (the only thing I can't do is lift heavy loads due to a back issue - heavy digging or intensive planting may need to be mixed with other tasks). I can also provide help with tourists on reception in hotels and hostels and am happy to do general upkeep and cleaning too. Due to my back problems though I cannot make beds or hoover!
