We are a young team that operates with speed, openness, involvement, passion and dynamism. Every day we try to share our dreams with the community and we try to make the dreams of the community come true. We do it with a lot of energy and fun, but above all with an important goal: to contribute to a world that makes people happy. Step by Step.
With the knowledge, talents, energy and experience of our volunteers, we try to be of added value to local projects and its users. Projects that have a foundation to exist, even without our presence. With our own initiatives we try to answer to local needs or to bridge the gap between the rich elite and the poor lower class of Ecuadorian society.
By opening conversations with people, by telling and most of all by listening and by cooperating we try to emancipate people. A better position in the labor market or just a smile on a face, a small change is often as valuable as a big one.
An experience in a completely new culture leaves a lasting impression with our volunteers and interns and shakes them out of their daily lethargy.
You´ll learn to put things into perspective and you´ll realize how comfortable life at home actually is. This environment provides the perfect platform to develop yourself. We value and put a lot of effort into the personal development of our volunteers and interns. We give you the space and opportunity to fill in your own dreams.
A short time abroad, living in a country with its own lifestyle, own traditions, humour, problems and challenges. How does that affect you? And them? Together you´ll live, laugh, dream and work together intensively. The perfect ingredients for intercultural relations, friendships and experiences for life.
