Make a direct and lasting impact in the lives of marginalised indigenous communities of Guaranda. In as little as a week, you can help poor people cook without breathing toxic air by building a smokeless stove, provide them with a reliable water supply or provide clean sanitation.

 

You can also help give children in the area a brighter future through teaching art/English classes; or if you have the skills and initiative, suggest your own personal project to improve the lives of those who need it most.

Permacultura Voluntariado

If you’re looking for low-cost volunteering in an area with a culture different from back home and stunning landscapes, come and help us build our cultural exchange centre: El Terreno

It involves physical work, to help us install the infrastructure that will become a space of tourism, education, ecology and culture.

You may also help with our community activities or put your professional skills to good use through a personal project.

 

You will share a dormitory, receive 4 meals a week and be supported by our volunteer coordinator / long-term volunteers. There's also the opportunity to live in a family homestay within the community at an extra cost.

Cultural Exchange Event Ecuador Andes

Our stay with Joshua and Karina was so far beyond my expectations. They - and their entire community in Atandahua - embraced us and shared their music, dancing, food, stories, adventures, and work. It is a truly special place and Joshua is kind, organized, communicative, and inspiring. The work is fun and very fair, the accommodations are comfortable, the community and the group of volunteers is lovely and easy to build friendships within. I highly recommend this project to anyone looking to experience this region in a real way, and to become immersed in a small, hard-working community with a beautiful vision for the future. I will be thinking about all that I learned here for a long time.
