The Experience

A not-for-profit conservation project in the depths of the jungle buffering two globally important biodiversity hotspots! Help our team with the much needed maintenance of the campus gardens and its agroforestry site with dozens of edible foods: katuk, moringa, yucca, cacao, coffee, bananas, etc. and sustainable materials like guadua bamboo. Make organic fertilizers and repellents. Help with the pigs and chickens. Harvest and get creative!

Volunteering at the at Centro Mamoní was an amazing experience that I would always want to go back to.The staff there are such nice people that welcome you warm and friendly so that you feel like a family member instantly. The site is just so beautiful and in the middle of the jungle. You are basically always outside and see so many birds and other animals, it is amazing. The food was also incredible. There wasn't a single thing I didn't like. I could also practice my Spanish and English a lot as there are staff members that can only speak Spanish and also volunteers from all over the world.

I volunteered with geoversity for a month, and I definitely recommend volunteering here. There are always many people around and many beautiful hikes available. Also you will be surrounded by animals and most of the time and you can learn how to live in a community, while learning Spanish.

It here are no words to describe this incredible opportunity…the organization campus in the Mamoni Valley is a true jungle experience with still most of the comforts we are used to. The work these people are doing here is amazing on so many regards, I loved learning about it and then help sharing it with the world. I can't recommend enough this experience, for real. Thank you!

There are no words or pictures that can describe the experience living in Mamoni Valley! The place is incredible, lush, filled with many different plants and animals. The people are amazing and everybody makes you feel like you are part of the family:) the work can be hard sometimes, but most of the days it is pretty chill. Do expect to get your hands and clothes dirty. If you want to help the environment and get away from the city this is the place for you! 10/10 would recommend
