COMMUNITY TEACHING IN RURAL AREAS

Teach English to the kids at rural communities, help the community to learn the use of new technologies

The project

The community used work in wood extraction, but then they decided to change their vision and way of life for a more responsible and sustainable one. Therefore, they have been working since 1997 in some different projects, like agriculture, organic products (milk, cheese, jams), community tourism, environmental education, among others.

Located less than an hour from Quito, you will be inside a beautiful, nature and relaxed area, where you will have the chance to share and learn about an awesome and well organized community.
