THE PROJECT

This volunteer project is located in the Amazon Jungle region in the city of Leticia, the southernmost town of Columbia. Leticia is bordered by Brazil and Peru in an area called Tres Fronteras along the edge of the Amazon River. The benefits to volunteer for the local communities in the region are innumerable, including exposure to the unique border of Leticia, involvement in a diverse fusion of people and cultures, and exposure to an unparalleled ecosystem. Volunteers will participate in valuable, hands-on work for an elderly home run by the state. Working directly with the elderly in the home allows you to be fully immersed in the culture and to rapidly absorb the Spanish language. All volunteers are welcomed with open arms and are guaranteed that a proportion of the program fee goes directly to the community for future projects and improvements.

YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER

The volunteers work directly with the elderly in recreational activities and to keep the members of the home occupied during the day. The elderly deeply enjoy the involvement of young foreigners around them as it gives a sense of purpose to their day. Recreational activities include creative workshops, serving meals and drinks in the morning/afternoon, playing board games, and having fun while building good relationships with the elderly over the period of your program.

WHAT THE PROJECT NEEDS

Volunteers should commit to at least 2 weeks of Spanish course. You will start your volunteer work straight away and work afternoons only.It is necessary to have an intermediate level of Spanish for this volunteer project in Colombia. The project is looking for volunteers with patience, creativity and professionalism. Volunteers must be willing and eager to work with elderly people and be excited to experience cultural differences.
