The spectacular ancient Andean culture, with its haunting music, expressive dance and vibrant dress, is matched only by the enchanting landscapes and hospitable people. In Ecuador, eleven distinct cultures weave harmoniously together to unite past and present.
As a Global Volunteer, you experience Ecuador through her people...needy children, their families and care-givers. Extreme poverty is the reality for the children you'll serve in the Quito area, but you can help improve opportunities in these young lives. Our service program enables you to provide direct, hands-on care for children of all ages through an amazing grassroots organization. No matter your background, your personal efforts improve these youngsters' well-being. What's more, through your help, Global Volunteers is able to purchase materials directed to the children's imminent needs.

Caring for children in EcuadorThe daily needs of the economically impoverished children we serve in Calderon, Ecuador are simple, and you represent an important resource for education, recreation and basic social development. The childcare centers built and expanded through the assistance of Global Volunteers teams provides safe and stimulating environments for mothers to leave their children so they can provide a better future for their families.
Our Ecuadorian host partner needs your help in these areas:
Childcare - infants and pre-schoolers.
Construction - a new child care facility.
Physical labor - landscaping, painting and masonry.
English language skills - informal one-on-one teaching.
Never doubt that you can change the life of a child in Ecuador. If you enjoy children, you can make a real difference by simply caring for, teaching and playing with he children of FUNDAC in Calderon. In addition, if you can wield a hammer, paintbrush or trowel, you can work alongside Ecuadorian workers helping to construct and expand new facilities that are so greatly needed for the children.
