It will be a pleasure to welcome you in our home!
Our house is big, clean, sunny, airy, sometimes messy but high-spirited. Hopefully you will feel as part of our family.
We work in our small organic bakery and sell our products on street markets and fairs on the weekends.
We offer you breakfast , including on your days off. Also products left over from our bread marketing on a daily basis may be consumed. If we decide to eat out you must pay for your own food and drinks.
We will appreciate if you bring some food into the house to share with us. We love to cook togheter and we like sharing meals ;o) specially when a great chef from another area appears! P.S.: We love vegetarian and vegan food, but we eat all kinds of food.
You will sleep in a VW Kombi (Caravan) and use a toilet (that you must keep clean during the whole week of volunteering).
About us: My name is Ester, I'm a 42 years old mom and businesswoman . Together with my partner Maicon, 36, a great baker and also a volunteer teacher on a JIU-JITSU project for kids, we formed a nice family with two enlightened CHILDREN.
We also have here the illustrious presence of two happy DOGS and two lazy CATS.
We love to travel, eat, work, play, surf, chill at the beach, do some JIU-JITSU and enjoy nature.
Not long ago we were traveling and volunteering in South America for almost two years, so we have a lot of stories to tell.
If you do not speak Portuguese, I will notice you that I am the only one who speaks English and Spanish fluently in the house but the rest of the family can understand a bit of Spanish.
During the week we will take you downtown to some different tourist places so you can enjoy the beach during the mornig shift.
The volunteer's work will generally be calm and relaxing (like WASHING dishes, HELPING TO PREPARE SOME MEALS, CLEANING and ORGANIZING the kitchen after all; or painting something, playing with the kids or even gardening) but don't think that it can't be heavy and exhausting (like sanding wood, DEEP CLEANING THE BAKERY and doing the heavy lifting of a construction, for example).
WE WILL TRY TO USE YOUR TALENTS IN COMPLIANCE WITH OUR "BOTH" DESIRES (yours AND ours), but you have to be willing to receive lots of types of tasks in accordance with the needs of the family for the moment.
In the last day of your staying, the day you leave our house, you must clean the toilet you used and the place where you slept (INSIDE THE VW KOMBI) before leaving.
Drugs and alcohol are not aloud during volunteering.
