2018-2019 Ecuador – Southern Hemisphere

We had three amazing teams volunteering in Ecuador from the southern hemisphere in 2019 working on various conservation and construction projects.

A special thank you to Maria-Jose, Xavier and Ashley who have been a fantastic team to lead our volunteer projects in the 2018 – 2019 season.

Here are some of the highlights.

Sardinas Community

  • Finished building 5 bathrooms and septic tanks to improve sanitation in the village. This involved a lot of hard work digging foundations, working with concrete, tiling and plumbing.
  • Cleared the way to the village as the original path had been overgrown!
  • Taught english and maths to the children of the village.
  • Incorporated fun games like Bingo, Hangman to make learning more fun.

Jungle Experience

The jungle hike is quite an adventure and the volunteers learned a lot about medicinal plants, insects and animals.

We also learned how to make bracelets and delicious chocolate! Finally, we had an amazing demonstration of a Shaman’s ceremony.
