The objective of this social project is to provide care and love to abandoned children in one of our orphanage house or assisting children from low-income sectors by lending a hand in one of our daycare or street kid centers. If volunteers prefer special challenges, they have the opportunity to collaborate in one of our centers for children with disabilities. If you're passionate about working with children, this is your opportunity to make a real contribution.

Tasks: As a volunteer, you will assist local staff in the day-to-day tasks of the center of your preference by providing general welfare and a loving environment, helping with feeding and food preparation, helping children with their hygiene and scholar homework, arranging recreational activities, entertaining the children and generally bringing fun and affection to the lives of these vulnerable and deprived kids.


The aim of this project is to provide general education to underserved students who face learning difficulties due to the lack in financial and human resources. This program offers a wide variety of teaching volunteer work opportunities wherein volunteers can contribute in primary as well as secondary school, depending on the eligibility and comfort level. We welcome any volunteer who has a desire to share educational knowledge with students who are eager to learn.

Tasks: As a volunteer teacher, you may either teach a class on your own or you may act as a teacher’s assistant within the classroom. Whatever skills and talents you have, you are always welcome. You may be involved in teaching subjects such as computers skills, math, English, geography, physical education and extra-curricular activities to the students depending on the need of the social welfare organization.


Sports have the powerful ability to draw people together, even from across international borders. Sport is one of those wonderful things that transcend language, culture and geography. The love for it is something most humans have in common. Our sport volunteer project is designed to give something amazing back to children and youth for whom sport is both a passion and a chance to escape the poverty.

If you can teach a sport you love (football, volleyball, basket, table tennis, etc.), please take this opportunity to share it to help underprivileged children and communities.

Tasks: Volunteers who join this project will mostly attend local schools and community sporting clubs as a sport coach. Volunteer will be providing sport and physical education sessions. As a volunteer, you will teach strategy and provide encouragement for young players while promoting healthy habits and serving as positive role model for young individuals. In short, volunteers will organize full physical activities such as fun games and sport events.

As life takes its natural course, it is inevitable that everyone will eventually grow old. Many senior citizens in Ecuador find themselves in desperate situations due to limited access to work or housing, and breakdowns in family or social bonds.

Our project is ideal for volunteers with a passion for caring and for those interested in wellbeing of the elderly. If you love volunteering at an elderly home, then you are perfect to fit on our volunteer opportunity. The main goal of this project is to provide senior citizens independence, dignity and quality of life. Volunteering in a senior community can be a very rewarding experience.

Tasks: There are various tasks that some elderly residents at the elderly homes are no longer able to perform for themselves. As a volunteer, you could be involved on providing encouragement, protection and assistance to elders with limited resources, or those facing abandonment. You will be supporting to local staff and seniors by assisting with physical activities, preparing food, socializing with seniors, playing games, small walks, healthcare service, etc.

Medical students and qualified health professionals are very welcome as volunteers on our healthcare project where they as a volunteer can contribute directly to their area of interest such as: gynecology, pediatrician, general medicine, nursing, emergency, pharmacy, physical and occupational therapy, dentistry, etc. International volunteers working in this project make a genuine contribution to staff and patients collaborating within Ecuadorian medical foundations, public hospitals and healthcare community centers. Volunteers without experience but who have an interest or desire to help in the health sector can also fully participate in this volunteer project.

Tasks: Medical and healthcare volunteers joining the project will have the opportunity to be involved in a number of different tasks and assisting in daily procedures of the medical center depending on their education, skills, experience, and qualifications.

Medical students and healthcare professionals will be providing various sorts of assistance to existing doctors and nurses such as: helping with taking vital signs of patients, assisting in vaccination programs and treatments, shadowing and assisting local doctors on surgeries and operations, helping in general consultation, medical outreach work and other medical issues. Volunteers without experience will be assisting in routine patient check-up, assisting nurses with general care of patients, health and hygiene education, family planning, etc.

Because your help as a medical and healthcare is vital for those in needs, lend your skills and time. Ecuador and its community await you.
