This volunteer project takes place in a protected Natural Forest Reserve in Canton La Concordia, province of Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas in the west of Ecuador. It is a remnant of 250 acres of private rainforest, protected by the Ecuadorian State. The height at the site is 250 m, the average daytime temperature of 24 degrees and relative humidity is 80%. The rainiest months are January, February, March and April, the sunniest months are September, October and November.

The volunteer work in the reserve is linked to several areas:
- Tourism: Learning to identify species of wildlife and its most attractive attributes. Proposals and implementation of recreational activities that encourage the protection and care of the forest.
- Environmental Education: One of the areas of greatest interest to the reserve is education and dissemination of knowledge of the fragility and importance of our ecosystem (Working with school children and youth in the schools).
- Research: Often research projects on the flora and fauna are presented by domestic and foreign universities, where volunteers can form part of the support team.
- Wildlife Conservation: This year we will begin with the construction of a rescue center for wildlife, as current facilities are very basic and small for the amount of wildlife that the reserve receives. The maternity area will be the main focus for volunteers who have an affinity to breeding fauna.
Most of the activities will take place in the jungle. Volunteers with interest in natural sciences, biology, veterinary studies are very welcome.

Duration of the project: The project is running all year round. Minimum commitment required is 6 months, up to 12 months.

Daman is a small village situated at an altitude of 2320 meters and 100 kilometers southwest of Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. The village provides a beautiful view of the Himalayas with Mt. Everest in the east. The village lies on the Tribhuvan Highway, one of the adventurous highways in Nepal.

We have been operating in Daman since 2012. Daman is quite isolated and most people are farmers, living a traditional life, as they have done for generations. However, times are changing and the community has a severe lack of funds to keep up with the rapid changes that Nepal is undergoing. Knowledge of other cultures and the ability to speak English are vital skills for young Nepalese people. Many look forward to a future in the tourism business, and therefore the ability to communicate effectively with foreigners will increase their chances of having a better life once they leave the village.

We also believe that our volunteers benefit a lot from staying in Daman. Living in a completely different culture with local hosts and adjusting to their conditions is an unforgettable experience. Teaching locals to think in new and different ways is to their benefit, learning from their unique way of life is yours.

Volunteers will be involved in the reconstruction of the community center affected by the huge earthquake in April 2015, teaching in the school by games and sports, and education on disaster prevention. If the funds for reconstruction are insufficient, the main work will be education, although some work related to the construction can still be done.

Typical assignments include nightly beach patrols, finding the adult turtles and collecting the eggs, transferring them to a secure place to hatch, and releasing baby turtles back to the ocean. Because of their natural predators, the turtles only go out of the water at night, and this is when most of the work will be carried out. The volunteers will also help collecting statistical data in order to learn about the evolution of the species.

This unique program allows volunteers to
> gain experience in marine conservation and learn from local experts and biologists;
> get an up-close look and learn to identify all five species of turtles that frequent the area;
> witness the amazing sight of turtle nesting and babies hatching;
> meet local people and learn about their life and culture;
> explore the popular beach resort area Rincón de Guayabitos close to Puerto Vallarta;

An Anganwadi (meaning ‘courtyard shelter’ in Hindi) is in many ways a day care center for children below 6 years of age. Anganwadis were established by the Indian government in 1975 as part of the Integrated Child Development Services program.

One of their main functions is to provide non-formal, pre-school education to children between the ages of 3 to 5. Volunteers will be expected to teach children in this age group through various interactive and creative activities that will help improve the cognitive skills of the children. The pedagogical approach to teaching should be in accordance with standards employed in kindergartens around the world.

Anganwadis were also envisioned as part of the Indian public healthcare system. Along with providing pre-school education, they act as primary healthcare centers in villages and raise awareness of health and hygiene in their localities. Volunteers can also help the Anganwadi workers in providing health, hygiene and nutrition education to families. This will include teaching them about family planning, educating parents on child growth and development, among others.

The volunteers should bring in creative ideas to initiate new activities in the Anganwadi center. It is important for the children to feel loved and cared for by you, as you will be surrounded by them every day. This type of project is perfect for you if you are someone who has many ideas for teaching different kinds of activities such as games, songs, arts and crafts or sports and athletics! You will be teaching a variety of subjects depending on your personal interests and skills. Previous experience in teaching children will be useful.

Language: English

Duration of the project: Minimum duration is 1 month. The project starts on the first Monday of every month.
Please note that due to school holidays, this project will remain closed during the following months: March until May; in the month of October; and sometimes in December. During these months, volunteers are encouraged to take part in the short-term volunteer projects.

The Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve, located in Monteverde, is a project that combines conservation, ecotourism and education. This project is an example of a protected area that is well administered by a small community which directly benefits from it.

With an area of 310 hectares, a great biodiversity and the source of many streams and rivers, the Reserve supplies the local communities and their surroundings with a nature preserve among a mosaic of protected neighboring areas: The Children’s Eternal Rain Forest, The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve and Arenal National Park. Together, these constitute a joined protected area of forest of approximately 28 000 hectares, where populations of endangered animals, such as the tapir, jaguar and quetzal, have been revived. For all of these reasons, the Reserve receives annually about 20 000 tourists.

Thanks to the help of national and international volunteers, people from the community, and students, the Reserve has developed a good infrastructure of trails, a visitors' center, a store and a small restaurant. Many volunteers with technical and professional experience also help with environmental education and sustainable development projects.

At Santa Elena Reserve, helping hands are always welcome. You will not only have the unforgettable experience of knowing one of the most world renowned centers of conservation and biodiversity, but you will also enjoy the opportunity of meeting a new culture. Costa Ricans, in general, and people from the Monteverde area, in particular, are known for their friendship, respect and kindness.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is one of Uganda's UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It has been described as “an isolated forest of outstanding biological richness”. This ancient forest contains more than 160 species of trees and over 100 species of ferns - and more famously, almost half the world’s mountain gorillas. As it is surrounded by one of the most densely populated rural areas in Africa, community benefits arising from gorilla tracking and other sustainable tourism initiatives may be the only hope for the future conservation of this precious site.

The volunteers will explore the forests and villages of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and will organise outreach programs for the benefit of the surrounding communities. They will promote environmental awareness, conservation and protection of the site. The group will provide educational support in the villages and plant trees. The volunteers may also help the local communities on small sustainable tourism projects in the area, as well as develop and design promotional materials about the park.

Duration of the project: 1 to 12 months. The program is running throughout the year.
Location: Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is located in Kanunga and Kisoro districts in south-western Uganda, bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo. It comprises 331 square kilometres (128 sq mi) of jungle forests. The forest is one of the richest ecosystems in Africa and is known for its exceptional biodiversity. Many types of birds and butterflies can also be found there, as well as many endangered species. The forest is home to almost half of the world’s mountain gorilla population.

Healthcare and the lack of easy access to it prevent people from upward social and economic mobility in India. Healthcare facilities in India are difficult to access. Government hospitals, though technically free, are so overwhelmed by the incongruity between the massive population of patients and the deficiency of qualified medical staff that they cannot cope with the load. Rates of children suffering from under-nutrition in India remain high despite the economic growth. In India 20 per cent of children less than 5 years of age suffer from wasting due to acute under nutrition. More than one third of the world's children who are wasted live in India (UNICEF).

Under-nutrition is substantially higher in rural than in urban areas and is responsible for 35% of deaths among children under 5 and 11% of the total global disease burden. Under nutrition is often an invisible problem that jeopardizes children's survival, health, growth and development, and it slows national progress towards development goals. According to the World Health Organization, a majority of the top 10 causes of death in India are both treatable and preventable. Therefore, to supplement the effort of the Government, we are working to provide health care to people and improve the nutritional status of the children.

As a volunteer, you will be working with healthcare centres or community based organisations and tasks will include: - Catering to the healthcare and nutritional needs of the rural community. - Organising health camps; providing health and nutritional education to children, youth/adolescents and community. - Conducting community awareness; facilitate training and capacity building for the health workers, community mobilisers on preventive, curative and rehabilitative health intervention. - Conducting surveys; documentations; designing appropriate Information, Education and Communication materials on health and nutritional aspect.

The project is spread out across different regions in South India. Your project location could be in any one of the following locations: Bangalore, Mysore, Chennai, Kundapur, Udupi, Mangalore, North Karnataka or Pondicherry.

Duration of the project: The project is run all year round. Minimum duration is 2 months. The project starts on the first Monday of every month.

Kundapur is a town situated near the beach on the west coast of Karnataka state, and is very close to the Western Ghats (a mountain ridge). The Western Ghats is India's prime zone for bio-diversity, known for the number of animal and plant species in this region.

In 2004, a Marine Turtle protection project was started here in co-operation with the Forest and Wildlife Department of the State of Karnataka. Over a 60-kilometer stretch of beach, surveys are conducted and the turtle nests are protected until the hatching of the eggs. Last year, more than 1500 baby turtles reached the ocean safely thanks to the efforts of international volunteers. This year again we continue these efforts. The projects will also focus on spreading awareness to the general public, fishermen community and in the schools about the importance of turtles in the bio-diversity. The awareness programs will involve beach walks, puppet shows, dramas and plays, mural painting, etc. The volunteers will also be involved in building Turtle Information Center huts along the beach.

Long-term volunteer project: 1 to 6 months from August to February.

The Carnival of Oruro is the most famous festival in Bolivia. It is one of UNESCO's Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
In Cochabamba, we'll organize cultural and educational activities before the Oruro Carnival.

The international volunteers will initiate and organize varied social, educational, sports and cultural activities for the kids in an orphanage in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

The orphanage provides home and care for disadvantaged children at the ages of 6 to 18. Most of the children are orphans or abandoned, some have mild to medium levels of learning or mental disabilities. The home also provides support to families who are temporarily unable to take care of their kids. The parents are being encouraged and taught effective parenting skills while the children stay in the social home. The establishment also runs a Crisis center, which serves as an emergency shelter for abused and traumatized children or those from troubled families. Another program of the Social home is for social and professional integration. It prepares for independent living 17 - 20 years old youths who grew up in this or other similar facilities throughout the country. During the day they attend vocational training courses, but the volunteers may meet and spend time with some of them in the evenings and weekends.

The socially disadvantaged background of most of the children is considered to be the reason for many problems, which they face in school, in their contacts with other people, in their everyday life. That's why the interaction with other young people from different countries while working, playing, learning together in the frame of an international volunteer project effectively supports their socialization and adapting to life in mainstream society. The main objective of the project is establishing intercultural social contact between the children and the group of international volunteers from all parts of the world, as well as improving children’s communication skills.

The establishment has recently started a new program working with children with autism. The program involves both residents of the orphanage and children with families in town. Volunteers who are interested or have previous experience working with autistic children are very welcome to join these particular activities.

Duration of the project:
2 to 8 weeks in July and August

The aim of this project is to protect the endangered marine turtles working in close collaboration with the local population of La Peñita Town or as they say “the place where turtles come at night”. Volunteers, along with local people and a team of professional biologists and trained staff, will develop activities to protect the turtles, and will help to ensure the survival of the turtles for the future generations.
There are five species of turtles arriving to this area: Negra (Black Turtle), Golfina (Olive Ridley Turtle), Laud (Leatherback Turtle), Carey (Hawksbill Turtle) and more! The size of the turtles varies from 1 meter to 2.4 meters long and the weight from 40 kg to 500 kg. Every turtle makes a nest of around 150 eggs.

If you love nature, enjoy spending time in an astonishingly beautiful beaches close to a nice beach town, and are willing to witness the magic that nature had made for millions of years, this project is for you!

There is a team of up to 5 experts that will be working with the volunteers in order to show them the beauty of the turtle’s life. The turtle camp has been in operation for over 25 years now.

The main work consists in patrolling the beach at night. The working hours are from 8:00pm to 8:00am, four days per week. The volunteers will be split in two teams allowing each team to have a day of work, a day off for recovery and two days off on weekends. The goal is to find the adult turtles and collect their eggs, to move the eggs to a protected place called Vivero and release newborn baby turtles into the sea when they hatch. Volunteers will also help collecting statistical data in order to learn about the evolution of the species. Activities must be carried out at night since turtles do not go out of the ocean during the day (because of natural predators, it is safer for turtles to get out of the ocean in the dark). In collaboration with local people and biologists from La Peñita, volunteers will seek for the turtles, taking care of their eggs and the baby turtles. The work place and load depend on the number of turtles that come ashore. Every day, the biologists will define which beach will be patrolled by the volunteers depending on where more turtles arrive. The group will also take part in the reconstruction of some of the most important turtle camps in the region. Locals and experts are very friendly and working with them is always fun as they explain to the team what to do.

Volunteers in this project will help provide support and care to orphans and improve their emotional state and their level of acceptance through daily routines at either one or two orphanage homes in Laudium or Atteridgeville near Pretoria.

The orphanages provide a caring environment for children that are at their most vulnerable (children living and working on the streets, child headed households due to the HIV/AIDS pandemic, abandoned babies and toddlers). Their mission is to render services and programs that are in the best interest of each individual child. The main focus currently is to create better opportunities for the children to develop in a stable and caring environment, and to improve their life skills. The children attend regular workshops on various topics including hygiene, health matters and ethics amongst others. The children have an abundance of talent. They have violin classes, they are great chorists and are excellent gumboot dancers. Music is a great way of teaching the children about life, and also provides them some escape from their own experiences.

Volunteers will get involved in first hand activities such as baby minding, cleaning the home and other activities as needed. They will also run a multi-cultural exchange program for the children with the help of art, music and dance.

Child Abuse is rife in South Africa and unfortunately not nearly enough is being done to protect the children. Abuse and poverty are the main contributing factors to street children and abandoned baby statistics in the country.

Duration of the project: The program in open from February till December. The minimum commitment is 1 month.

In this project, volunteers will support a fishing community to protect, preserve and plant more mangrove forests, and improve the income generation opportunities for local fishermen. International volunteers have been nursing and planting more than 50,000 mangroves every year. The presence of volunteers has also enabled the community to become a very attractive eco-tourism site since 2014.

The project welcomes individuals who are passionate about the environment and hands-on conservation work. Volunteers will be working as active promoters of environmental and sea life preservation, and enjoying the natural environment at the same time.

Volunteers' main task will be picking mangrove seeds, seedling, planting, and supporting community activities such as building, community cleaning campaigns, and organizing workshops about trash management for local people.

Volunteers in this project will help the local community in their struggles to protect the turtles that arrive to the region of Bahia Drake, Progreso Beach, Ganadito and Ganado Beach. The beach where the turtles arrive is located 3.5 km from the village, so during the Turtle high season that starts in July and ends in October, they organize the work in different shifts 24/7. The site is located at Bahia Drake, on the northern side of the Osa Peninsula. Drake Bay (Bahía Drake) is an adventure-seekers paradise.

El Progreso is a small village mainly with family houses very close to the beautiful beaches of Bahia Drake. The main economic activity is agriculture and also people live from the tourism that comes to Bahia Drake. The community is very far away from main cities!

Volunteers will take part in night patrols at the beach. This includes spotting turtles, collecting the eggs, measuring the turtles and relocating the eggs to a safe location. It is important to know that the volunteers will never be alone. The participants will also have to tend the “Vivero” (Hatchery) and watch the nest to find out when the eggs hatch, but also must check if any predators are feeding from the nest (ants, crabs, birds). The volunteers will also help to clean the beaches.

A two-day training related to the tasks and information about turtles will be provided in the beginning of the project.

Volunteer’s schedule is Monday to Friday, 5-8 hours a day (depending on the tasks), 5 days a week.
