Volunteer Abroad is a one of a kind opportunity to travel with a purpose and make a difference. Volunteering is founded on the concept of giving through the donation of your time, your skills, your energy, and often just simply your presence to help others in need.
The lessons and benefits that a volunteer receives while volunteering abroad are endless and can include increased self-confidence and social awareness, development of life skills, personal growth, friendship and building of independence. Furthermore, volunteering can help to enhance career prospects. Not only do volunteers increase their skill base, work experience and international contacts through volunteering abroad, employees often look favorably upon those who are willing to go outside of their comfort zone and give up their time to assist others.
GET Ecuador is a local organization that partners with NGO´s, and other local Institutions to benefit projects in the social and conservation area. Our programs include: assistance at daycare centers, wildlife conservation, women empowerment, elder care, health support, among others.
Arriving in a foreign land, meeting a new culture, and finding yourself as you serve others, this is all part of the volunteer abroad experience. Making a heart connection with the needs of others and being able to fill those needs is both gratifying and exhilarating. It is truly a life changing experience!!
