Program Director in Ecuador

So far, volunteering with Manna Project International: Ecuador has been an incredible experience! Even after just 4 months I have learned so much about myself, how to work in a team, how to navigate cultural differences, how to be a strong leader, how a non-profit functions in a foreign context and, of course, I have greatly improved my Spanish. Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of my experience has been building relationships with our community members. I have enjoyed getting to know our students and the leaders of the partner organizations.

Yes, I recommend this program
