Ecuador Service Learning Trip 2014


Dates: March 1-8, 2014 (Spring Break)

Trip Leader: Sarah Hamsher

Cost: Under $2,500

Details: Designed specifically for (but not limited to) education majors, this trip will focus on schools and education systems as we explore the rich culture of Ecuador and its people. We will be staying in the beautiful, historic city of Quito, nestled in the mountains of Ecuador. The trip will showcase the natural wonders of this lush equatorial country and will include outdoor activities as:

  • A visit to the Middle of the World (straddle the equator with one foot in each atmosphere)
  • A view of the majestic architecture of the cathedrals and museums
  • A sky tram ride to the 13,000 foot summit at Telferico, and the Artisan Market

Our service project will be working with children at the Nuevos Amigos school supported by RiverTree Christian Church. Nuevos Amigos serves children living in extreme poverty, providing Christian education, meals, school supplies, vitamins, and clothing for more than 125 children each day. Our lodging will be dormitory style. (Bunks in separate rooms)
