We offer projects in the following areas: agriculture, environmental education, English teaching, early child care, special needs care, social work, care for rescued animals, general and traditional medicine, women’s health, and cultural tourism.. There is a one-time registration fee which covers our administrative costs.. This allows for our volunteer coordinators to arrange everything with your chosen project, provide you with orientation and office support, give you accurate directions to arrive there, and continuously evaluate each project to ensure that it is running well.. This fee does not include accommodation, food, or transport.. Each project offers its own accommodation options, and the volunteer pays this directly to the project itself.. We will advise you of the accommodation for your chosen project.. Transport outside Quito costs around $1 per hour and most projects are withing 4 or 5 hours from Quito.. Those going to Galapagos have to pay a national park entry fee of $110.. Click here.. for more information about volunteer costs.. Please contact us through the Contact Form and indicate your preferences, any relevant experience you hold, your Spanish proficiency, and which projects interest you.. The volunteer coordinator will suggest the best project options for you, and will send you a link to our online registration form.. How long in advance do I need to register with Yanapuma?.. Typical time to register is one to two months beforehand, but we are quite flexible.. Keep in mind that some projects are popular and spaces fill up quickly.. Most projects do not have particular start dates, though school projects are open only during the academic year (which varies depending on the region of Ecuador).. All projects operate Monday through Friday, and they prefer (though not required) if volunteers arrive on a Monday or Tuesday to get the week started on the right foot.. It is recommended to spend at least one month with a project to really be involved and effective.. This is the typical minimum time for most projects.. There are projects that will accept volunteers for one or two weeks minimum, while others require a two month minimum.. The level of Spanish needed varies by project.. While some projects can accept volunteers with a minimum level of Spanish, others require  ...   in Ecuador is efficient and cost effective.. City bus fare is $0.. 25 and interprovincial bus fare averages to about $1.. 00 per hour of travel time.. Taxis are cost effective; We encourage you to take legally registered taxis.. When the coordinator escorts you to the project on the first day, you will take public transport.. Yes, this costs an additional $40 or $45, depending on time of day/night.. Alternatively, you are welcome to take transportation on your own.. The taxi customer service counter inside the airport can arrange a taxi to the tourist district of Quito for $25-$35, or a regular shuttle bus costs $8 to the city.. Most foreign nationals are allowed to visit Ecuador without a visa for a period of 90 days or less.. A 90 day tourist permit is automatically granted upon your arrival in Ecuador, and will be stamped on your passport..

Shorts and flip flops are normally considered only for beach wear.. If working in a school or medical setting, please wear business casual comfortable clothing.. Only if you are a licensed medical professional, you are welcome to wear your medical uniform (i.. e.. scrubs), as this uniform gives you an assumed status with clients.. Outside of work, we encourage you to wear urban conservative clothing (jeans, long pants, etc.. ).. Please also consider the climate where you will be volunteering.. In the sierra it can be warm during the day and cold at night, and in the Amazon and Pacific coast regions it can be humid and hot during the day.. for a list of things to consider bringing.. All these items can be bought in Quito, so there is no need to panic if you do not have everything.. Am I at risk for Malaria or other diseases while volunteering in Ecuador? The risk for malaria in Ecuador is very low.. Consult your medical provider or travel clinic for more specific advice.. Vaccinations such as typhoid and yellow fever are also recommended before traveling into the deep Amazon.. Yellow fever vaccine is required for entry into some Latin American countries.. The risk for malaria in Ecuador is very low.. It is likely that yes, there will be other volunteers at these projects, but it is very difficult for us to predict numbers in advance, as the projects we work with receive long term and short term volunteers from other organizations, as well.. You can contact our volunteer coordinators, by submitting your questions through our Contact Form.. We will get back to you as soon as possible..

  • Title: Volunteer costs in Ecuador
    Descriptive info: about volunteer costs.. Yanapuma Foundation is a non-profit organization, registered in Ecuador under the Ministry of Social Welfare.. Our aim is to promote sustainable practices in indigenous, rural and urban communities throughout Ecuador.. We fund our activities from our Spanish School, which donates 100% of its profits to the foundation, and the money we receive from volunteers.. In addition we seek funding for materials and costs associated with specific projects.. The communities that we work with are very poor.. , and although they are grateful for any assistance, they cannot afford to feed and house volunteers for free, as they themselves struggle to survive.. Likewise, the projects that we work with struggle to continue their work, and are dependent upon the income that volunteers provide for food and accommodation to both feed and house volunteers and have a little left over to contribure to the project.. There are many volunteer organizations,.. many of which charge large sums of money to volunteer, and there are a few others that charge very little.. We aim to be as reasonably priced as possible, yet also strive to offer a guaranteed service to the volunteer.. To run the volunteer department costs us around $21,000 per year.. , to pay two coordinators to manage each community and project, reply to volunteer's inquiries, to pay rent, internet, travel expenses, etc.. Talking to volunteers over the last couple of years who have volunteered with a wide array of organizations worldwide has given us the insights to understand how to provide these services to our volunteers.. We have talked, for instance, to a couple who paid a lot of money to a seemingly reputable organization, who ended up working on their own digging a swimming pool in the back yard of the local director who had co-opted the volunteer program of a small community for  ...   very goal-oriented and driven culture from which most volunteers come and the more loosely structured and less time-bound approach typical in most indigenous and marginal communities and projects.. Which means that even with the greatest of planning and forethought, the experience can be frustrating for volunteers anxious to achieve concrete results.. At Yanapuma, we are well aware of the responsibility that we have to both sides.. : to the community or project, in making sure that we achieve the goals we set with them and provide them with the outside help that they need to the volunteer, in ensuring that they arrive to find a well-organized project and a welcome place in which to contribute meaningfully.. To achieve both these goals, Yanapuma staff keep regular contact with the communities and projects that we work with, and monitor progress of each project continually.. We will travel to the community on behalf of the volunteer to set up long-term and group projects and to ensure that all relevant materials are on site and that the community or project is prepared for their arrival.. We regularly monitor the volunteer programs as part of the overall goal of contributing to the development of each community, and solicit feedback from visitors about their experiences in order to ensure that the programs are running well.. Thus, at Yanapuma Foundation we strive to guarantee our volunteers and visitors a rich and rewarding experience, conscious of our responsibilities to both the volunteer and to the community, and at the same time, working to cover the costs associated with our activities as a non-profit organization.. We hope you will support us in our efforts to improve the lives and futures of the communities that we work with..
