Last modified: July 22, 2014, 2:26 AM


Our social mission is to help poor children and young people of the rural and suburban zones to break the poverty circle by means of helping to improve their living conditions and their educational and cultural environment.

We are located in Southern Colombia and Ecuador, in the cities of Pasto and Ambato.

We work in the benefit of children in three main areas: 1. social, by means of the improvement of living conditios, 2. education, helping in the schools and educational needs and 3. cultural, preparing children for developing own projects and for having better opportunities in life.

We are an small group of colombian and ecuadorian volunteers and we receive the help of foreign volunteers. We have both free and paid opportunities and we can offer a low costs volunteer program for all foreign volunteers that want to come to help.We are registered Charity in England and USA and we have 15 years of experience in volunteering.
