Kindergartens and child daycare centers are very happy to have your support. Slip into the life of an educator and help out on site. Our projects tend to be located in smaller towns as this is where the help is most needed. So be prepared for a lot of culture and a simple life. Your areas of work can vary.

During your time in Guatemala you will work in a kindergarten, childcare center or school. You can do volunteer work in the social sector in Ecuador in Quito. It always depends on your goals. Each project is unique.

In the kindergartens or crèches you look after the children, play with them, help with handicrafts, changing clothes, feeding, brushing teeth and can contribute ideas. The local staff look forward to your support and new ideas.

During your time in the project, you will live with a host family. Especially when working with children it is important that you do not start without any knowledge of Spanish, but already have a good basic knowledge.

Native speakers have the option of booking this project without a language school. If you have no or very little knowledge of the language you can either complete an online language course in advance or take a language course with us in Costa Rica. This is the perfect way to combine two countries.

All programs can be booked with friends. If you would like to book a program as a group, we recommend that you enquire in advance. Each person must book the project individually.

Ideal for all programs are at least three months in advance. In principle it is also possible for us to place short-term applicants (volunteering and language study travel) in Ecuador.

Ecuador is a safe country and the people are very friendly and warmhearted. In big cities, as in every big city in the world, there is petty crime. When travelling, the following things should be taken into account: always keep an eye on valuables, always keep your hand luggage on your lap in buses, and at night you should not travel by bus or withdraw money from ATMs. Up-to-date information on the situation can be found at the Embassy or Foreign Office.

Please note that in Ecuador all electronic devices can only be used with an adapter. They are available in many electronics stores.

In principle, no language course is mandatory in advance. However, depending on the volunteering program, certain levels of the language of your destination country may be required to complete the project. We would be happy to advise you individually on your chosen project.

Depending on the program, we work with host families in the vicinity or there are volunteer houses at the project site.

For all programs you have to be covered by foreign health insurance. We will be happy to help you find a suitable insurance policy.

During the language school and in the volunteering projects, you will always have a direct contact person to help you with any problems. Of course you can also always contact us.
