The cottage in Han sur Lesse welcomes families, schools and groups of all kinds throughout the year…
Thanks to you, the organization would like to improve the quality of the place, and therefore the atmosphere for the public. Your team will carry out various tasks, mostly outdoors, in order to create spaces where people can gather, meet, interact… You will help to redevelop the surroundings of the cottage by building a barbecue and a picnic area and improving the soccer field.
If you work fast, several other small tasks await you, such as the creation of special habitats for insects to enhance the biodiversity of the place.

Created in 1937, the non-profit association "Kaleo" aims to promote youth social tourism by paying particular attention to economically and culturally disadvantaged people and their development. Bringing together the two sectors, Kaleo is recognized as a Youth Organization and Social Tourism Organization and promotes access to leisure and holidays for all, through a pedagogical and fun approach.
Kaleo manages a network of more than 30 simple and qualitative accommodations located in different villages in Wallonia, the southern part of Belgium.
At the same time, they offer various types of activities (discovery classes, summer courses, annual events, weekends, theme breaks, etc…) with a support service for their organization.
Their website (in French, Dutch or English) is available here: https://www.kaleo-asbl.be/fr/
