Waorani Amazon Experience
Why This Volunteer Work Project is Important
This Waoroni Tribe has decided to partake in ecotourism and receive visitors to create a sustainable source of income for the community. Volunteers help them with this initiative to create a harmonious life within the jungle.
The Volunteer Perfect for this Program
The perfect candidate for his program should be a person who is self motivated, and wants to help in as many things as possible, like fishing, building, teaching English, agriculture and more, candidates have to be self motivated since the waoranies live on their own pace. Activities consist only in every day living essentials, like gathering food and making handcrafts and some natural medicine.
