Ecudador Eco Volunteer ® is a Social Organization that has run volunteer work programs in Ecuador since 2007. It was founded by Wladimir Ortiz. When the organisation started the vast majority of volunteer work programs in South America cost thousands of dollars per month and were lead by European and US NGO. Ecuador Eco Volunteer had different values and vision and thus took a different path.
We decided to create this organization to make a direct link between the local communities, local projects and international volunteers interested in genuine volunteer work. This allows those local communities and projects (that mostly have no presence on the internet because of their remote situation) to receive people that help them. It has allowed the communities to benefit from the unique skills and hard work of the volunteers from around the globe. And at the same time, it has given the volunteers some of the best experiences of their lives.
We offer opportunities to help all around Ecuador and our volunteers can freely choose their programs based on location as well as their areas of interest. The categories of projects all around Ecuador are environment and conservation, community development, teaching English, construction and renovation and wildlife and animal care. The aim of this organization is to help local communities in Ecuador by providing them volunteers and contribution to their program.
