Program Details

Volunteers should expect to help in the morning from around 08.00 to 11.00 in getting the girls at school (5 minutes walking) and/or helping in the house. The rest of the day until 5pm should be free. From 5pm-7pm we would ask to babysit the younger girl or alternatively to pick up the older from school and to take her to the pool (twice a week) and helping her change for swimming practice (school and pool are at walking distance from the house). It might also include easy house works (cleaning up, preparing the table for dinner). After about 7pm, we won’t need any supplementary help except, very rarely, when we go out for dinner and we will ask you to babysit the 2 girls until we are back. Volunteers will be like a member of the family.


We expect the volunteers to be responsible, tidy, patient, non-smoker, wishing to spend time with kids and to play with them
Volunteers will be free, most likely, each weekend unless they want to travel with us.
