Help at this nice hostel in Corfu
We are a family of 6, my husband and me and our 4 kids, that would love to have happy, communicative and positive people help us out.
Ideally, we would like all the help we can get to do spring cleaning, gardening, painting, and if possible a person with I.T. knowledge and another person who has communicative skills with autistic children.
Our goal is to create a warm family environment and keep our organic garden green.
We have decades of experience with volunteers from all around the world and our family has had many “new members” from the lovely people we have met over these years. Help required is very basic, for example just cleaning, ironing, gardening, painting etc. However, we would also like to know what you are happy doing: if you are happy we are also happy.
The “Hard” work is on our own, but extra hands are always welcome.
We would also love to have someone who is good with children, and preferably someone who has experience with Autism who can spend some time just going to the beach or for a walk or just playing, etc.
