A Typical Day While Volunteering:

The Cañarí people of the Nizag Community are an ancient culture who speak the local language of Quichua natively and Spanish as a second language.

Why This is Important Nizag Nariz del Diablo:

By helping these Indigenous Villages rise out of poverty and become more self sufficient we will be reducing the ‘rural exodus’ of poor farm workers into dangerous slums with high unemployment in the big cities like Quito and Guayaquil. It also helps the community create a more environmentally sustainable way of living by encouraging conservation and reducing the reliance on exploiting the natural resources in the environment for money
