THE PROJECT

The project is located in the southernmost town of Columbia in the Amazon Jungle region. Leticia is bordered by Brazil and Peru near the Amazon River. Access to the diverse ecosystem of the area is only minutes away, making volunteer work in Leticia an ideal location. The volunteer program allows you to be involved with a diverse fusion of people and cultures while giving the opportunity to practice your Spanish first hand. Volunteers and local community members work together to build a system of sustainable tourism while preserving the local culture. Volunteers will participate in hands-on work with a clinic for special needs children who have physical and mental disabilities. All volunteers are welcomed with open arms and are guaranteed that a proportion of the program fee goes directly to e community for future projects and improvements.

YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER

The volunteers work directly with children in the special needs clinic to shower them with attention and love. Some of the responsibilities in the clinic include implementing creative activities to stimulate the children’s interest, possible work in the special education section as a class assistant, playing games and occupying the children’s free time.

WHAT THE PROJECT NEEDS

The minimum time required is 4 weeks : at least 2 weeks of Spanish course and 2 to 4 weeks of volunteer work. It is necessary to have an intermediate level of Spanish for this project, therefore the requirement to take Spanish classes. (Please ask for further information.) At the volunteer project, you will work about 4 hours per day, so it is possible to combine your volunteering in the Amazon with your Spanish classes. Volunteers should be patient, creative and professional and have an enthusiasm for working with special needs children. Volunteers must be excited to experience cultural differences.
