Plato para Todos is a food project in the south of Quito, the capital of Ecuador. The project is created to help the youth of Quito with their nutrition and development. Plato para Todos, which means “a meal for everyone”, focuses on children at risk of serious health problems due to malnutrition.
¡Una buena comida para todos!
Con el proyecto Plato para Todos, Local Dreamers se enfoca en hacer una contribución práctica para estimular patrones de alimentación saludable, conciencia nutricional y ofrecer una dieta variada. Brindamos educación sobre nutrición y salud, preparamos comidas frescas y saludables y trabajamos en la distribución de alimentos desde áreas excedentarias a áreas deficitarias.
Dentro de este proyecto aspiramos a la formación de una comunidad cercana, sentido de responsabilidad compartido y conciencia, no solo entre los niños, sino también entre los padres y cuidadores. Con esto tratamos de lograr que la creciente desigualdad de ingresos lleve a una menor desnutrición grave en el sur de Quito.
At Plato para Todos, you can take the role as manager/project coördinator or volunteer.
It is important to take spanish lessons to be able to participate and communicate with local people. In our office in Quito we have experienced teachers. During the lessons besides Spanish you will learn about culture and get enough experience. This is ideal because you will also have the opportunity to participate in all our projects in Quito: English school, swimming school, soccer school and other interesting activities, see our Spanish course page.
Local Dreamers offers its volunteers and interns excellent Spanish classes for the price of only € 11 per lesson. Every volunteer and intern are very excited about our Spanish lessons.
The main office of Local Dreamers is in Quito the capital of Ecuador. There is also the meeting point to direct our volunteers and interns to the different projects. Our facilities have everything you need to prepare your lessons. We have a pleasant working environment with computers, internet and printers. In the cafeteria you can prepare a good cup of tea, coffee and a snack. Outside our office, just one step away, you will have access to all the facilities you need, for example, a large supermarket, restaurants (with a full menu for less than three euros) stationery stores, bakeries and even hairdressers, etc.
Upon your arrival at the airport, José Luis (our driver) will be waiting to take you to our office, where one of our guides will be waiting to take you to your lodging and will also teach you everything you need while you get used to the projects and how to get around in Ecuador.
