Water Ecuador has volunteer opportunities both in Ecuador and in your home country. In Ecuador, past volunteers have built water treatment systems, taught in schools about the importance of safe water and good hygiene, tested water sources for microbial and chemical contamination, and worked to strengthen the administrative structure of our organization. In your home country, you can get involved by “tabling” for Water Ecuador at local events, assisting in webdesign and other graphic design needs, raising donations for our organization, and many other activities depending on your particular interests and expertise.
Successful volunteers in Ecuador have been:
- Ready to change the world
- Passionate and energetic
- Able to adapt to new and unfamiliar circumstances
- Able to develop and implement a project without a lot of oversight
- Adventurous—willing to try something new and make mistakes along the way.
- Fluent or conversational in Spanish
