Volunteer Work in Ecuador

Volunteer Programs Ecuador

Volunteers participating on any program in Ecuador during the month of December  for a minimum of 2 weeks will enjoy a full-day weekend tour of either Otavalo & Cuicocha Lake, Cotopaxi Volcano or Quilotoa Lake free of charge.  An amazing opportunity!

Love Volunteers is looking for volunteers to provide support in many areas of Ecuador. Our volunteering options include teaching English, working directly with disadvantaged children and women, assisting in hospitals and day centres, as well as volunteering on environmental and animal welfare projects in the Amazon and Galapagos Islands. Volunteers’ efforts will make a positive impact on the lives of people for whom poverty is a daily reality.

We find that many volunteers on programs here appreciated just how much of a difference their help could make, and that the locals were very willing to welcome these relative strangers into their world. South American culture is steeped in history and Ecuador is a highly individual country where visitors will encounter amazing friendliness. 

Supporting Ecuadorian communities requires volunteers to make use of your their resourcefulness – their wisdom, judgement and sense of humour. Many people feel that they become a better person as a result of their experiences as a volunteer.

Ecuador is a compact South American country known for its extraordinary natural diversity. It combines Andean vistas, tropical jungle and Pacific beaches. With a population of around 14 million, its people belong to a large spectrum of different ethnic groups, some speaking Quichua, an Inca language.
