ENGLISH

You want to get to know the East Part (Amazonia) of Ecuador and not just for a short trip? You would like to live the daily live with a kichwan family? Then you are very welcome and we´d be happy to have you here in our family.


** There are several large projects that the family needs help with right now, such as building a traditional style house in the jungle on a beautiful piece of property with two small waterfalls. The family would prefer volunteers who can stay for one week or longer, preferably a month. To help the family, volunteers must pay 3 dollars a day for sleeping in Tena s house.
Our family lives in Tena but we also have a farm in the jungle, about 40 mn from the city...
There, you will learn how to live like local people. We will teach you how to cook with traditional food and also about plants that we can eat and medicinal plants from the forest.

You will also help with typical work such as harvesting corn, banana, yuca or sugar cane and other days you may be planting. There is also the opportunity to learn how to fish.

Apart from the work in the farm there is also the opportunity to teach one time a week english or other things in the local school, to help the childrens.


You can also learn how to make artisenia with fiber taken from plants and seeds found in the jungle.

As economic times are hard, there is a small fee to help cover the costs of the volunteers. The fee in Tena is $3 a day and food is not included but wee have a kitchen for everybody who is able to cook. If you want to exchange with others, it s also nice to share food with all the volunteers and the family.

If you choose the jungle house project (from monday to friday and weekends in Tena s city), There is no possibility to buy food over there so you will have to pay 7 dollars per day (all included) for sleeping and eating 3 nice meal per day

There is also the possibility of experiencing many of the hidden places around Tena with Juan, who is also a guide. You can visit many of the indigenous communities and also experienced nice road trip in the deep wild jungle...

The work is always changing with the seasons, so contact us and we will be happy to tell you what we currently need help with.


Una experiencia inolvidable en la selva y en las comunidades Kichwas


ESPAÑOL

Te gustaria conocer al oriente ecuatoriano mejor y no solo de paseo? Te gustaria conocer a la vida cuotidiana de los kichwas?

** Ahorita, hay unos proyectos grandes para que la familia necesita mucha ayuda. Por ejemplo, quieren vivir en una casa tipica en la selva. Prefieren voluntarias que pueden quedarse dos semanas o mas. Los voluntarias pagan 3 dolares cada dia pero la comida no esta incluida. Las voluntarias que se quedan mas tiempo saben mas de los trabajos y son mas ayudantes***
Nuestra familia vive en Tena pero también tiene una finca en la selva aproximadamente a 40 minutos de la ciudad. Siempre hay trabajo. Ustedes van a ayudar a efectuar el trabajo cotidiano como por ejemplo cosechar el mais, los plátanos o la yuca. Otro día estarás sembrando platanos, caña o yuca.

Siendo buen pescador, se te presentara la posibilidad de anidar pescado a la cena. Ademas siempre se agradezca a alguien que nos ayuda.

A parte de eso también existe la posibilidad de realizar un proyecto con los niños del pueblo Shandia, como por ejemplo instruir en la escuela local una ves por semana. Eso depende de tus intereses.


Nuestra familia tiene experiencia en albergar voluntariados desde hace mucho tiempo y va a asegurar que te sentirás a gusto en cualquier momento. En compensación podrás experimentar la vida real de los Kichwas, apoyaras directamente a una comunidad y llevaras impresiones inolvidables.

Como los trabajos siempre cambian, seria un gusto por nosotros de explicarte personalmente las posibilidades.


Los voluntarios pagan 3 dolares diarios por el alojamiento en Tena y la comida no esta incluido.

Estamos seguro que te va a encantar muchissimo
