"Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it" M.W.E.
Fundación VASE invites you to join forces in Ecuador and bring education to people in need in this country!
As a volunteer, you'd work alongside street educators and other like-minded volunteers in providing literacy classes, vocational training and providing shelter and food to street children for the betterment of their lives.
You don't need a qualification in order to join: just passion and desire to help others!
The school’s objective is to offer a personalized, active, and playful education in harmony with the environment not depending on the children's age, but respecting their psychological maturity and development, and avoiding authorial guidance. Part of the school’s daily life is focusing on agricultural projects, excursions, cooking-projects, etc.
The project looks to provide a baby care service for the workers of the markets, preventing child labour and accompaniment. Meanwhile it's working with street children from the surrounding area with the purpose of giving them education, food and a shelter while their parents work on the street.
This private school has a kindergarten and a school where the children are taught subjects such as Math, Science, English, Social Studies, Physical Education, Music and Computation. The aim of the project is to provide education for over 300 students from 3 - 14 years of age.
The project schools are located on the outskirts of the city of Otavalo, where classes are given to young people from the communities. Activities include agriculture, environmental care, sports, computers, and arts and crafts. The mothers prepare the food for the school children and promote the consumption of the products they grow and take care of.
The project is divided into a kindergarten and a school where the children are taught subjects such as Math, Science, English, Social Studies, Physical Education, Language and Computation. The volunteer should be willing to support the teachers wherever they need help.
