Living in Ecuador > Volunteering in Ecuador (page 3 of 4)


BioMindo is a private non-profit organisation which combines a sustainable lifestyle and the support of environmental conservation in Mindo and its surroundings. Possible work options for volunteers include opening trails in the forest, inventory of biodiversity, bamboo constructions, organic gardening and permaculture, improving local eco-friendly tourist attractions, learning about local fruit while helping in the juice bar run by BioMindo. Volunteers don´t need to have previous experience in biology or construction work, what is needed is enthusiasm, initiative, physical fitness, to be open for sustainable living (composting toilet, solar collectors etc.) and the willingness to contribute to conservation of the planet.

Quito Eterno Foundation
Volunteer projects include:
Medical attention to low-income communities. Education and development for Special Needs Children. Painting colonial homes in Historical Quito. Home building projects for single parent families. Non-formal education with local students. Teaching English or another language to at-risk youth. Organizational Development with a local NGO. Agricultural and nutritional development with local rural community. Early learning development with a local preschool.
Depending on your available time, we plan volunteer trips for 7 or more days. Most work is done in marginal neighborhoods of Quito and in nearby rural communities. We call trips of 7 to 15 days reality tours and trips of 15 or more days volunteer vacations. If you desire an experience similar to that of Peace Corps, but for a short term stay, this is your chance. There is no shortage of communities or projects.

Brethren Y Unida (FBU) Foundation
Living with a family, you will help to implement projects that benefit them and the community, while you learn Spanish in a relaxed atmosphere. We emphasize that an important aspect of the program is the exchange of culture and customs between the volunteer and the community members.
