Amazing Volunteer Opportunity in Ecuador


I am writing to share with you an amazing volunteer opportunity that I hope you will take the time to share with your students.  Sustainable Roots is an NGO working in Ecuador in a small town called Cosanga.  We have been working here for over three years and have seen amazing results from our work.  We keep constant volunteer presence in the community.  The volunteer’s work is largely centered on teaching English but our volunteers are a big part of the Cosanga community and often lend a hand in multiple other aspects of community life. 

This opportunity is fairly inexpensive; volunteers with a basic understanding of Spanish and who are willing to stay at least three months (preferably six) have their housing and food paid for.  

We are effecting positive lasting change in this community and in the lives of our volunteers.  We have also been asked by multiple other communities around the region for help but as yet do not have sufficient volunteer applicants to facilitate this.  I hope that you can share this opportunity with your students and help us grow.  Please take a minute to look at our website, our blog or our Facebook page for more information.  Also feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
