2019 Ecuador – Northern Hemisphere

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

A special thank you to Maria Jose, Xavier and Ashley who have been exceptional team leaders for 2019.

Here are some of the highlights.

  • Provided english and math lessons for 43 students over 3 difficulty levels from counting through to holding conversations on various topics such as name, age, colour, greetings, numbers.
  • Introduced new types of songs, games, and painting activities.

  • Learnt about local crafts and cooking techniques such as making bracelets and fresh chocolate.
  • Visited the Amazoonico animal rescue center.
