The Experience

We have 100 rescued dogs living at our big farm! We need to take them for walks,play with them and feed them. We are inviting volunteers to help us mostly developing our eco-tourism project on our site, creating permaculture areas, organic veggie patches, etc. Close by is the huge Cotopaxi volcano, many rose farms and pristine nature sites. This is a complete rural location, with good views and great hills for running, biking, horseriding, etc.

My experience was wonderful: Victor, Mayra, Santiago and don Humberto are kind and generous people. The place is amazing, nice views and people in Sigchos. Besides, Fausto don Fausto in Sabia, are inspiring men, the dogs sanctuary is a deeply recommended place to stay, a little paradise on earth. Thanks to all these amazing people.

We were really lucky to have been able to host for Lenin. He is very nice and respectul and we learned a lot from him. Lenin was good at working with his hands and always willing to help with any task. Lenin showed also that he is a great teacher and I was very impressed by his respect and communicative skills at his classes. Thanks a lot Lenín. It was great to meet You! We hope that you come back soon with your amazing team.
