About us Having your chores done while doing good at the same time — is that even possible? With Valeriana it is!

Among other issues, this also fosters dependencies and unequal power dynamics. And moreover, migrants are often subjected to social isolation due to linguistic and cultural barriers, making it more difficult for them to form meaningful relationships in their new home country.
