~ Currently looking for a helper from December/January -> ~

We are a young family of four; Janet (25), my husband Toni (26) and our children Hugo (3) and Doris (1). Also we do have a small dog.
We live on a countryside in Northern Ostrobothnia. The village we live in is quite small and surrounded by nature. There are lots of fields, forest and beautiful beaches.

I'm a cook, so I really enjoy cooking and baking on my spare time too. My husband likes to do different sports and go hunting on his spare time.
Usually we just want to spend time as a family, watch movies, go outdoor and go to sauna, relax.
We also have a cottage in Kuusamo, where we often spend holidays.


We would hope you to do light housework on weekdays while we work. Like doing dishes, laundry, vacuuming (not everyday)..
Also it would be nice if you would walk the dog, and watch after the kids every now and then so I could do grocery shopping/shower etc.

We would like you to be social, have a sense of... more inside

Good day to you all.

My name is Dennis, 42 years old.
I live with my cat in a village that's sometimes nicknamed Uutonen.
The village is a part of Tohmajärvi town that borders to Russia.

Uutonen has had a little bit of a bad reputation in the past, maybe still has.
The village has 20 or so factory worker houses. Aka barnhouses that are rotting away. I live in one of these houses and own another one.

One house has no water, no piping or electricity, the other one has all the previous.

At the moment Im working, building houses and a "tinyhouse" that's cheap to make, easy to build/assemble and transport.
The idea is then to open source a type of comfortly liveable little home. And share free drawings of them.

In the outskirts of the center of the nearest city Joensuu, Kulho.
There is a sustainability project in its grassroot stage. The project is called nomadtown, Rented land where we are alloud to raise temporary little houses, yurts tipis or tents.

Hey you! I am a single mother of a lovely son Milo, born in Jan 2018. We live in a 3 room flat in Helsinki, Mellunmäki. Helsinki is a lively city, with lots to offer. I haven't had a helpxr yet, who wouldn't have fallen for Helsinki.

We are looking for someone to look after Milo every now n then (usually a few hours at a time), do some light house work and join us on our adventures. We are outgoing and are looking for someone, who would like to see how life in Finland is and teach us a bit about your culture too. I strongly believe the best part about being a host is not to only show my own culture, but to learn about yours too. Having such a young kid, I can't really travel all that much myself, so I love the fact, that I can still bring culture to my life!

Our lifestyle is hakunamatata, we don't want to stress abt the smallest things. Milo is super social, he gets along with everyone. I am talkative too, unless I watch netflix, which I do too much. Oh, nice to know: I am ... more inside

We run an internship program for people interested in working with huskies in a semi-professional capacity. In other words, we don`t just take people as volunteers and expect them to poop. Rather, we have a systematic training system in place which is an extension of the system in place for paying clients who want to participate in the husky lifestyle for short periods of time.

Interns learn about and participate in the daily and weekly tasks that need to be completed on the farm. The first week is a bit of a baptism of fire guided by a daily mentor in which there is complete immersion into every aspect of life here.

The degree to which people can participate in the range of roles available on the farm depends on the length of their stay, their expertise coming in, and the level of interest in the various roles.

Duties change with the seasons from one-on-one dog training and construction / maintenance work in the summer, to dog-conditioning and safari preparation work in... more inside
