We are gathering volunteers for the school year in Llanchama Cocha, an indigenous community in the interior of the Amazon
Ecuadorian.
We seek to cover the whole year, but with more urgency the cycle of June-July 2017.

This program consists of rotating cycles of 2 months, during which period 3 or 4 volunteers are
Teachers in the school of the community.

By participating in this program basically you interns for 2 months in the Amazon, without any comfort to which you are accustomed:
Electricity, drinking water (underground water),
Bed, bathroom, cell phone, etc. You live inside the Sapara community, live with its inhabitants and ... you're happy!

Transportation and food costs for each volunteer.

There exists a "house" (which is a clear place with a thatched roof) for volunteers and you sleep in a tent that you yourself must carry, so there are no lodging costs.

It is required to have a high level of spoken and written Spanish.

All year

Everyone



We are a foundation made up of a group of people convinced that with education we can change the world and that through different circumstances of our lives we realized that the disappearance of the ancestral cultures of our planet is to the detriment of all of us.

We get together, we organize and we decide to carry out educational projects in different points. Appealing to the conscience and solidarity of people from different parts of the world, we have managed to gather volunteers, materials, money and other elements that have allowed us to contribute small grains of sand that today make us proud and give us strength to keep moving forward.

Basically what we do is identify the needs of a community that belongs to a culture in danger of disappearing, and we elaborate educational projects adapted to the reality of its inhabitants, that contribute in the preservation of their knowledge, customs, worldview, territory, etc.

After developing the project, we have gathered volunteers who want to participate in it and we take them to live in the community to carry out the project, in addition to gathering the resources necessary for it to develop in the best way.

While the work is done, we make permanent evaluations with the volunteers, the community involved and the World Happiness Center team, to make continuous improvements of our actions.

And of course, we all socialize through social networks and different media, inviting more and more people to join our work.
