Hello from the Ivory Coast. We are Ben & Hannah serving in Abengourou, Ivory Coast. We have four children, three of which are being homeschooled. Judah (2010), Micah (2012), Miriam (2014) and Naomi (2015). This is our first year homeschooling, our kids have attended public schools in the US prior to this move. My husband and I are sharing time working with a clinic and maternity and trying to homeschool the kids. We are looking for a teacher or teacher assistant to be a constant presence to assist in homeschooling the kids so we have more flexibility with the ministry of the clinic.
We run an HIV program for the city and many surrounding villages. We provide care at the clinic in town and are starting to plan for mobile clinics in the villages. We love the idea of the kids travelling with us to these villages from time to time and the Nanny could also be a part of these projects as well.
We really just need someone present at the house to encourage and assist the kids in homeschooling. Ben and I also plan to be a part of this as well but not having ALL of the school responsibilities falling on us will free up time for us to also focus more on the clinic ministry and language learning as well.
MissionNannys is an all-volunteer organization working to connect Christians willing to volunteer their services to assist Christian Missionary Families for their children’s education, child care, or domestic needs, usually for short terms of 3 to 12 months. Applicants will submit an application form with information about their Christian life, experience and so forth. Unlike other nanny placement services, we do not charge the Family nor the nanny for our service, other than a $25 fee for nanny applicants to help cover our costs. (Click FAQS for more on finances).
We will inform you when we approve your application, and begin discussions about your choice of Missionary Family to serve. The Family will receive a copy of the information you provided to us, and if the match looks good, you will be put in direct contact for a dialog with the Family.
