It will be better if the connection with local family is improved. Sometimes the internet is not good in this small village, so volunteers need someone who can speak english well.

Work as a volunteer at an artisan shop in Ecuador. A catalyst for change in the community the “taller” was the first group to consciously create an environmentally sustainable source of income in the community, more than 10 years ago. Mariana and Renee now sell modern and traditional jewellery and crafts made from seeds and other materials that they sustainably grow and harvest in the cloud forest.
As volunteer in Ecuador you will work in their shop and learn to make crafts and jewellery. You will be introduced to the history of reforestation efforts in the community, and the indigenous story of the Yumbo people.
If you are an artsy, want to help a low-income community and be close to their culture, this is a perfect match for you to do all of this and be immersed in a new culture and language!

Volunteer in Ecuador teaching English and learning Spanish!
Volunteer in Ecuador in our teaching project. As a volunteer, you will have the chance to change individual path of life. Learning English will make it much easier for children and adults to work with tourists and also other volunteers. Many people in the community are interested, or already in the process of learning English. So you can offer them private or community lessons.
The local school is also open for you to teach the language and help with other educational subjects. Most of all, it is extremely important to give them attention and affection while teaching as this is what they need the most. We suggest Iko Poran volunteers to give lessons in a playful and interactive way; this will definitely make lessons more effective.
