I came here thinking about just the kids and teaching them english. But leaving them , was probably the hardest thing. i cried and we cried and it’s all love . and i’m going to come again because they are not just people who live in the amazon who need help to me. They my friends and they treat me like family and i’m going to come here again. I made connections that i never thought of making. especially because i’m not the best spanish speaker but they bare with me and tried to teach me their native language but the pronunciations are crazy. and if you decide to come here , come with an open~

That was an immersive experience to go in this place, I had to teach English and French to a group of kids for 2 weeks and it was my first time doing that, I'm glad I went through this opportunity who happened to be both amazing and tough.. Haha, a great challenge, and also to express myself in Spanish!
Yacu and his family were really nice people, a pleasure to meet them and to learn more about another culture! I get inspired by new ideas and lifestyle now :)

Yacu Reserve, es un lugar espectacular en medio de la selva ecuatoriana. Intentan intégrate en la familia al máximo posible y tiene la oportunidad de beber y probar alimentos típicos de la región.

Es una experiencia única poder hacer este volunariado, se aprende mucho y se conoce un poco más de cerca la amazonia.

Hay que tener en cuenta, que la casa en la casa donde se duerme, no hay señal móvil, ni internet (en la yacu reserve si hay internet) y hay alguna cucaracha nocturna jeje experiencia de la selva.

La comunidad nos recibió muy bien, y Nelly y Yacu nos hicieron sentir en familia. Tienen muchas cosas por enseñar de su cultura y siempre están dispuestos a ayudarte en todo lo que necesites. Yo me enfermé y ellos fueron muy comprensivos y me aconsejaron los mejores remedios de la región para recuperarme pronto. Yacu nos llevó a una cascada preciosa en la mitad de la selva y fue increíble. Cuando llegamos, los niños estaban muy felices de conocernos y de aprender Inglés. Sin duda, una gran experiencia para nosotros y nuestro hijo.
