The Project is a school in the rural surrounding of Otavalo. In the afternoon they offer different workshops. Depending on the volunteers’ skills, s/he can participate there too. The school has 162 students and classes with about 20 students.
They are open to all profiles. It´s an advantage to speak good Spanish because the local people often speak Kichwa and you don´t learn a lot of Spanish in the family. They have to be very flexible and adaptable because in the schools they normally don`t have a good management and it´s changing a lot. Volunteers have to go in contact with the people and integrate their selves in their communities. Sharing food or activities with the family and the teachers can open doors. It´s important to have a good condition (because of the altitude) and to be a strong and independent person who likes the nature and to enter into a simple life (the next shops and internet coffees are in Otavalo).
