Program Details

Breakfast and dinner you will cook yourself in the shared kitchen while lunch will be either with the schoolkids or at the orphanage. You will most probably have your private room with your own bathroom. During the day you will have many different opportunities to support the kids. Either you teach them in a specific sport, but you also can involve yourself in other events like baking, cooking, playing drama or advertising our events on social media. We plan a lot and especially want to give you freedom to bring in own ideas. Most important: whatever it is, it should be in English :-)


Activities & Shift

Your day will be interesting and various every day. Sports classes in Beachvolleyball, Volleyball, Athletics, Badminton, Netball, Sportsclimbing, Tabletennis will be your daily routine, but all other events can be created by you or us together. Ideas like summer camps, cooking and baking events as well as drama- and musical days are on the list. We want to motivate the kids to be creative, open up opportunities for their future and make them learn English and life important things while doing interesting activities. Taking photos, videos and support us with social media or even better teach the kids how to do it can be another challenge for you.


Rules

We cannot accept any pets. Otherwise we have some easy house rules which most probably are naturally understandable. We will discuss them when you arrive. If you act as you would expect guests in your home we are most happy.
