About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

I host people from all the world at home. You should be able to speak in english and like to communicate with strangers. I host travellers in august and december. Travellers will be only at home in the evening, so you will be free most of the time.

Your missions :
- Prepair meals
- Communication
- Positive vibes

- Possibility of maintenance of a cottage
- Visit of Colmar, Eguisheim, Swiss or Germany

I look forward to receiving an introductory message including your anticipated dates for travel, information about your current status and background, work, family, fun time. Please include why you feel you'd be a good match for this volunteer opportunity. Possibility of skype interview.
Many thank

I work in trade in Germany.
I am also medical psychological help and worked with disabled people.
I like to walk in mountains. I was on the top of Grand-Paradis (4060 meter)
I am eco-friendly (no plane, eat less meat, buy bio products...) and try to be vegetarian.
My main project is an humanitarian project. I help local humanitarian associations.

Expect that I have a lot of life lessons to share with you.

PHILOSOPHY
Smile. Cry if you need it. Be nice, as much openminded as you can, dont hurt anyone or anything or yourself, be fair even when it is hard and very faithfull to your principles. If anything goes wrong you will know that you have acted as well as possible and it will be easier to smile again.
Don't be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams.
You can't change the world. But you can be the change you want to see in this world.
Never give up.

I work and go to bed early.

I provide bio food. We have fantastic apple juice for example.
If you come I want that you feel good here. I will do my best.

I like to keep my home a place where we waste as less as possible (energy and products).
I am hugely interested in sustainable lifestyles.
