Pick a project !
Social help, teaching, reforestation, animal caring in the Andes, the pacific coast, the Amazonian rainforest, or in the Galapagos Islands. There are plenty of projects that need your help!
Some of them are long term missions, other are temporary.
Volunteers work about 7h/day (5days/week). It is easy to travel through Ecuador in the weekend.
Before you start your mission you will get 3 welcoming days in Quito.
If you volunteer in Quito, your accommodation will be in the NGO’s building with the other volunteers. However, there is no Internet access for volunteering missions in the jungle.
Being a volunteer means taking part of the everyday life of the people that volunteers live with. That is why volunteers HAVE TO eat & sleep into family’s houses or into the NGO’s building (which is very comfy). Volunteers can follow Spanish courses at a cheap price.
