The Experience

You will work on projects based on your strengths. For example, if you are a good social media administrator then: The first 2-3 days you will learn about the business and the Ecuadorian textile market until you feel comfortable with our products and core business Once you are more familiar, the idea would be to present a simple project to increase our followers on Facebook. For example, you could help us making viral videos or blogs.

Had a really great time here. The family and organization is incredibly welcoming! The project itself was really interesting and pretty experimental too, I definitely learned new things.

Considering this is my first experience with Worldpackers, it has been great! It has overcome all my expectations. I have enjoyed working beside Javier and the team I have learned a lot from them. Javier and his family have been very welcoming, they have made me feel at home... It has been lovely getting to know them. As a designer I feel like I have developed my skills and gained valuable knowledge during this time, I can honestly say I have enjoyed the collaboration. I look forward to future collaborations with Javier. I am very grateful for the experience :)

Such an insightful experience, perfect for those with a business or social media background. The family are lovely and go out of their way to make you feel at home. It's best to stay for at least 10 days/2 weeks so that you are able to make a difference and implement any necessary changes. Some members of the family speak English but the staff do not so knowledge of Spanish is advisable but not a must.

I enjoyed the experience thoroughly. The family is sweet, caring, and provided everything I needed. I had a great time with the coworkers and family including on the weekends. I enjoyed learning about the textile market in Ecuador, and specifically on how LyR is operated. After I learned about the company, we decided what the best project for me was. My main project was updating the company website, giving LyR a good foundation for their social presence. I highly recommend LyR. I'm thankful for the experience!

La experiencia con Javier y the host es única y muy buena. Él y la familia me saludaron con brazos abiertos. Pasé mucho tiempo con varias personas del equipo, todos siempre muy atentos, amigables y apoyando con cualquier cosa. El proyecto en yo trabajaba fue muy interesante y había mucho lugar para mis ideas y desarrollo personal. Aprendé mucho para mí carrera en la economía, gracias a la estructura del voluntariado (mucha responsabilidad, libertad y también buenos medios/equipo (MS365, ordenador, oficina, ...)) y el conocimiento y las enseñanzas de Javier.
