Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Volunteer in an Indigenous Amazonian Village Colombia



We are dedicated to helping the indigenous youth of the Colombian Amazon jungle to live sustainably through education.

What may you do during your volunteer time?

You must bring your own supplies to do any activities.

La Libertad is a village where the majority of people live in extreme poverty. The destruction and contamination of the ecosystem is all around them and constantly encroaching. Much of this is directly caused by their uninformed actions. With guidance, education, and help, their quality of life can be greatly improved by learning about sustainable business development.

This volunteer opportunity is not for everyone. The location is remote. The village we serve is one of extreme poverty. The conveniences and ease of “western” life are not available.
