Volunteers on the Kindergarten project assist Ecuadorian teachers in primary and kindergarten
classes, teaching pre-school math, writing, reading and art lessons, as well as helping out with
lunch and playtime. Classes are held in either a school for girls or a private school for low-income
families with each class having 15 to 35 students. Volunteers play a crucial role in supporting the
local teachers to take care if the young children. This project is a great option for aspiring
teachers, volunteers with no experience in planning curriculum or teaching, as well as those
wishing to improve their Spanish skills.
The School Support Project involves tutoring, providing educational support and instilling
confidence in Ecuadorian children who have recently been enrolled (or reenrolled) in school.
Volunteers on this project travel to different markets, a local school or community center and work
with children in groups or individually, going through homework and supplementary activities.

There is a great deal of behind-the-scenes work involved in accomplishing the goals our partner
organizations has for the children of Ecuador. The purpose of the Administration Support project
is to provide assistance with the operational workloadof the organization, to enable them to widen
their reach and help more children. Volunteers can utilize existing skills and experience or learn
new skills by helping with the day-to-day operations of these organizations, as well as gain a
greater understanding of NGOs and the issues they face. Volunteers may assist with translation,
record keeping, fundraising and grant writing, public relations, campaign scholarships, systems
reviews and communication. Duties are assigned based on the priority of tasks at the time of a
volunteer's program in accordance with the volunteer's skills, interests and experience. It is
important to note that volunteers on this project are typically asked to spend a portion of their time
working on another project, such as Street Children Work, to supplement their time performing
STREET CHILDREN WORK
For many Ecuadorian children, school is never an option. These children spend 365 days a year
working in the streets and markets, selling goods and performing with their parents to help their
families stay alive. The Street Children Work project focuses on providing these children with
some enjoyment in their lives, along with education. This project is popular among the families of
these children, as it offers them new opportunities and perspectives on life that they otherwise
would not have been exposed to. Volunteers on this project work with children of all ages and
assist in providing basic school lessons, playing with the children, singing and dancing, providing
hygiene awareness (such as teaching the importance of washing hands), and introducing the
children to new activities and games.
The Summer Project provides support to 120 children from disadvantaged backgrounds who are
either struggling with school or trying to continue their education, as opposed to slipping back into
a life of working in the markets with their parents. This project increases educational continuity
and stimulates an enthusiasm for learning, which instills education and schooling as a priority for
these children. Volunteers on this project teach a range of subjects, including English, Spanish,
Geography and the Arts.For mare details relax and take a have a look at our website by going to
