The program

This important project was created with the goal of helping to improve the English speaking abilities of some of the poorest residents of Quito, Ecuador. The Teaching English program aims to serve one of the poorest communities in Quito, housing mostly migrant families coming from the surrounding countryside. The program’s foundation is for the integral development of the local children through projects of education, nutrition, health and recreation. Native English speakers are desperately needed in teaching placements here to improve the children’s English skills and help them prepare for a better future. While English is widely taught throughout the country from primary school onwards, the special value of this work by volunteers is in delivering correct language usage from a native English speaker’s viewpoint. Hence, previous experience and prior training are not essential. As is common in many of the worlds poorer communities, an ability to speak English unlocks a new world of possibilities for children with greater access to education and work opportunities.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free English language classes to children in primary schools in Quito
  • Improve the future prospects of some of Quito’s most impoverished children, and help them to break the poverty cycle
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike.

How you can help

Volunteers play an integral role in achieving the goals of this project. The impoverished children in this community need a helping hand to escape from the poverty in which their families have lived for generations. English language skills give these children this helping hand – improving their chances for higher education and employment. While there is no disputing the importance of local English teachers in the continuation of ongoing language skills development in a developing country, there is undeniable benefit to having native English speakers imparting their own inherent knowledge of a skill they have effectively spent their entire lives developing. The combination of first-hand knowledge of the English language and an often inability or low-level ability to speak the local language spoken by their students makes international volunteers great English teachers.

Volunteers on this project therefore provide a valid and effective means of English language tuition. They will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Work with children in primary schools
  • Teach English and focus on the children's self-esteem
  • Help children with their homework
  • Give reading and counting classes
  • Organize the recreation time and snacks

Tagesablauf

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

7:00am Breakfast at the accommodation

7:30am Walk/bus to your project site

8:45am Pre-start meeting with project supervisor

9:00am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

A tea break and lunch break will be fitted in during the day, but often the timing of breaks will change based on the needs of the local staff and number of volunteers on hand.

2:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES END

2:15pm Debrief with project supervisor

2:30pm Walk/bus back to the accommodation

Evenings Free time to relax and have dinner or go out and explore the sights and sounds of central Quito – a bustling and vibrant metropolis!

Unterkunft
Volunteers on this project are primarily accommodated in one of our local teams Volunteer Apartments, which are centrally located and close to the offices of our local team. These apartments are ‘self-catered’ – perfect for those volunteers who prefer to cook for themselves and without the restriction that come with staying in someone else's home. All standard amenities are available, including full kitchen facilities, hot running water and modern bathrooms. Wifi is also available (additional charges may apply in some cases). For those who prefer, home-stay options are also available with one of our friendly local host families.
Gastfamilie Gasthaus
Verpflegung

For those choosing the home-stay option, breakfast and dinner are provided (additional costs apply).

With its reputation for superb exotic fruits, unsurpassed fish and seafood, and not least the numerous varieties of Andean potatoes, Ecuador offers the taste buds a veritable feast. Among the traditional dishes that volunteers might want to try whilst in Ecuador are: Seco de Pollo, Menestra and Ecuadorian Churrasco - a plate consisting of roast meat, a fried egg, chips and fried plantain - or even the great delicacy, guinea pig. For savoury main courses, the hot sauce aji is often used. Easily and very cheaply available from bakers’ shops are empanadas (warm pastry pockets containing meat or cheese), llapingachos (potato and cheese pancakes) and tempting sweet pastries.
