Program Overview

Program Description:
The aim of this programme is help to conserve a part of the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest by participating in tree planting, trail work, research activities, sustainable living and food production as well as some community projects. You can take part in 4 programmes: Cloud Forest Conservation, On the Way to Sustainability, Social Education and Travelling, Volunteering, Learning (TVL). You can join for 1 week up to 12 weeks year round. We have places all throughout 2013 and 2014 available. Individuals, groups, students doing research and families all welcome.

We are offering four different types of programmes: Cloud Forest Conservation Programme On the Way to Sustainability Programme Social /Education Programme TVL - Travelling, Volunteering and Learning For all programmes (except TVL), volunteers are needed for periods from 1 week up to 3 months. Beyond 3 months is also possible, but then you need to get a visa.

With volunteers being able to fine-tune their stay to their strengths, this opportunity ensures that personal skills are enhanced and built upon, but also ensures that volunteers can give back to the community in a positive light. As you will be working with communities and the environment, this project also provides for a useful insight into world affairs, and may give a sense of perspective.

With an area of 814 hectares, it is located in the center of the Rio Toachi-Chiriboga IBA (Important Bird Area, declared by Bird Life International and Conservation International) and it is part of two important bioregions: The Tropical Andes and the Choco Darien – Western Ecuador, considered within the top five biodiversity hotspots on earth.
