A Broader View Volunteers Corp

I would recommend volunteering with A Broader View because they offer a broad range of volunteering opportunities, not just all over Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands but all over the world. The US and Ecuador staff are all very knowledgeable and accommodating. They were very willing to work with us in constructing a program that worked for us given our tight timeframe (daughter, niece and me). Most of all we felt taken care of which is important when you are so far away from home in a foreign environment.
The children at the program were adorable and eager to work with us. We brought many English books translated into Spanish which they could not wait to get their hands on. Their enthusiasm was priceless.
Pack light versatile clothing and should include waterproof shoes and wind/rain jacket. Bring items you need like sunscreen, insect repellant, toiletries, anything else you may need from the states. The brands we are use to are not available in Ecuador and can be expensive. Bring a small laundry detergent so you can hand wash clothes. Clothing gets damp this time of year (August), so this will keep everything fresh.
This was a very nice experience to travel with my daughter and nice to volunteer abroad in Ecuador, I would recommend other families to do the same.

After recently returning home from teaching English in the Galapagos Islands, I have had some time to reflect on my experience. What stands out the most aside from the beautiful location, the beaches, the wide life, and the perfect temperature, has to be the people. There are so many friendships I have created from the island of San Cristobal and so many outstanding human beings that I have come into contact with. The Ecuadorian culture seems to be very laid back and friendly. This was the case not only for the excellent support staff that I worked with, my host family, and the children I taught, but also from simple strangers on the street. It is so true that you feel safe there no matter what time of the day it is, and it is because everyone looks out for each other.

I would strongly recommend this project to anyone, and hope that I can return one day to this place that I have called home.
