Aupair Culture exchange program


Au Pair means in French “a pair” which means you will be part of a family in a culture exchange program. Since it is an exchange program for one year only. For you as  an au pair this means that you in exchange for light Household duties will get free board and lodging, food etc. It is not WORK, meaning it is under CFO (Commission on Filipino Overseas) this is the department under the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), therefore there is NO PLACEMENT FEE involved. If you leave from any county outside the Phillipines it is much easier.

 

Light Household duties means like the word it says

      taking care of children

      being like a personal assistant for the parents 

      some light cleaning; like ironing, cooking, washing dishes, shopping, bring the children to school, helping with the homework, etc.

 

The culture exchange program will give you a chance to live in a European family to exchange your Filipino culture to Dutch culture. For both sides, a nice year to learn international traditions. You will receive 340 euros for 30 hrs per week. Meaning you earn around double the amount per hour you earn at your present position. The host family is inviting you to come, they are your host.

 

The host family will provide you with

      return plane tickets

      au pair Insurance for a year (covering medical cost)

      SIM cards (for mobile)

      Cost and accomodation 

 

You are only allowed to help the familiy with a maximum 30 hours a week and you will have 2 days off per week. During these 30 hours you are not allowed to use your mobile phones or computers privately. You have all the time to use these gadgets during your spare time or day off. You are never allowed to publish private pictures of the house, the kids, the car, etc of your host familiy.
