Preferred location

We are prepared to consider almost anywhere. Our background is mainly Africa and Europe, but we also have experience from north America, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East and various offshore islands. We would prefer longer commitments - several months - to really get to know a situation so as to be more useful to the host.


I am a wildlife ecologist and project manager in remote loactions, while my wife has been nurse, midwife, school PA and librarian, as well as helping me in whatever we do. We are both very practical with varied skills including construction and maintenance, we have twice built our own house in remote areas, using off-grid energy sources. We most enjoy using our hands in practical outdoor ventures.

Additional info

I am not a smoker, don't have a drivers license, I am not a vegetarian and I have no allergies.

We are a quiet couple, not comfortable in large groups, meditational or artistic projects.

Type of work I want to do

  • construction
  • farming
  • gardening
  • help in the house
  • maintenance tasks
  • animal care
  • boat handlers
  • computer help
