Me to We’s volunteer trips in Ecuador take place deep in indigenous communities of the country’s rugged mountains or in the lush Amazon region. Ecuador’s natural landscapes are an ideal place to learn about conservation, biodiversity and rural development issues. Begin by exploring Old Quito, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then travel through three distinct ecological zones, each with its own unique climate, flora and fauna, and get a close up look at what life is like for people living in this region. You will witness not only the beauty of the Andes Mountains and the misty Cloud Forests, but also the impact of deforestation and environmental degradation. Volunteer on reforestation projects with local women’s groups, connect with community members, and learn first-hand about the struggle for indigenous rights. The country’s rich culture, contrasted against a history of indigenous issues and economic disparities, makes for a truly hands-on global education experience.
