25 Mar , 2015  

Travel Volunteer Ecuador Latin America because Ecuador is a country of boundless diversity, friendly people and spectacular natural wonders. You can travel in a day from tropical lowlands where bananas grow, to the Andean Mountains where llamas graze beneath volcanoes over 20,000 feet high, and on to the edge of the mystical Amazon Basin. The Ecuador Volunteer and Trips program is a meaningful opportunity for volunteers who wish to explore the beauty of Ecuador, its culture, nature, and people while volunteering in Quito or Cloud Forest. The Travel Volunteer Ecuador Latin America program’s aims are to help orphaned children, day care center, children with disabilities and health Hospital – giving them much needed hope and guidance and to conserve the beauty of the Cloud Forest. As a volunteer you will be teaching health education/English/sanitation to poor kids/feeding hummingbirds/collecting seeds for exhibition. You also help children to develop their creative talents, working with them to draw pictures, play games and perform various creative activities. After a few days of working for the poor children or any volunteer project in the Cloud Forest, Eco-Volunteer UP will organise a four day tour of Ecuador where you will experience Ecuador’s rich past, exciting future, wonderful culture and natural beauty by exploring the biggest indigenous market in Otavalo, a paradise of magical beauty in Papallacta, the bio-diversity of the protective forest at Pasochoa Volcano (a refuge of wild life), beautiful landscapes with dense Forest, flora and fauna in Mindo.
