Bahía de Caráquez, Ecuador

(in a small rural community)

June 18th - July 2nd, 2018

Be apart of a not-for-profit program aimed to help small communities in need since the recent 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Ecuador. During your time, you’ll be building a water tank with emergency relief volunteers across all walks of life. The tank will supply each home in the community for many years to come. 

What's Involved

  • Rustic accommodation in northern, rural Ecuador and 3 traditional meals provided each day
  • Full day risk management orientation and intensive prep workshop to help you effectively develop the project within the interests and constraints of the local community, builders and other third-parties
  • Strategic goal-setting and daily hands-on work to build a water tank
