Opportunities for Varied Service Projects in Ecuador

VISIONS participants have completed some fantastic service projects over the years in Ecuador. See a few highlights below and read more about the program here.

Service Project Supports Village Tourism

Participants completed the construction of brick & mortar tourist kiosks in the rural community of Sucre. The village receives passing tourists, and the kiosks give artists and farmers a place to sell their products.

We painted part of an elementary school in Patate and made improvements to another small schoolhouse in the rural town of San Pablo de Morragacho. A focus in Ecuador has been to improve existing school infrastructure and sanitation facilities.

Service Project:  Bilingual Lesson Plans and Games

Our teens assisted at the daycare Gotitas de Miel by creating lesson plans and playing games in Spanish and English. Social service complements our construction work, and also helps local kids work on their English skills while we improve our Spanish.

Life Skills Improved by Service Project for Disabled

We worked with trained staff at a center for people with disabilities by doing activities designed to promote life skills. Sure, we lent a hand, but we also learned more about the culture and connected with people on a one-on-one basis.
