Project Details

By reinforcing the workforce we are working to help the community. Supporting their own projects to achieve their goals and aims, to broad their chances and opportunities

Volunteer In Colombia social projects have been created to help a community to stay together, to empower them to keep their youngster into the village and family and to keep alive the production of sugar cane and coffee beans, their main income support . Our commitment is to help and support  the community with their own social projects, to achieve their goals in order to improve their financial and socio-economic situation, so they will improve their quality of life.   There is a big shortage of staff and qualified workers to carry on maintaining this small community. Big families have found themselves behind technology losing the aim for farming, looking after the elderly or educating children.  Now day’s the youth are attracted to live and work in a big city where they feel they can become more successful, leaving behind their parents, small children and farms, but most of them cannot achieve it for the lack of education putting themselves into gangs, drug addiction, prostitution, and child trafficking among other social problems. Volunteers will be able to choose the project that want to support like help the youth at the youth center to broaden their views, by teaching them new ways of living in their own community, new skills to carry on farming, English language skills and tourism as well as support the learning disabilities, the elderly day centers, school and farmers. Please refer to each project description for more information.

Social Impact

The aim of the Volunteer In Colombia is to help this community with the support of international volunteers. Children in this community are the most vulnerable inhabitants, so helping them at the school and the youth center will broad their views and chances in life,  by supporting teachers with their education teaching new languages, sports, maths, IT, signing, dance, after school recreational and ludic activities,among other activities we can make a difference to them.  By helping them to understand why it is so important to stay in the country side and support their community to move on. 

By helping to look after and entertain the elderly and or disable children we can make their day a more sympathetic and happy day, some times they only need somebody to talk to or play with, teaching them to be more independent will make their life easier. 

By helping farmers with their daily activities we can make sure they do not lost their crops and we can help them to increase their production and therefore their income, also they can keep farming alive and will not be push to abandon their lands.

 Volunteers will play a big role into providing human resources to achieve their goals, there for create more jobs and keep this small village together. 

So if you are looking for real life experiences and love nature these are the projects for you. You can enjoy the natural environment, ecological walks into the mountains and by the river, wake up with the signing of the birds, bird watch, eating fresh fruit from the trees, and a real experience within a family environment in the countryside of Colombia.

 This is the opportunity to integrate within a normal and more traditional life, seeing Colombian People in their real live condition with their ups and downs. The opportunity to be in a tranquil and safe area not far from the Capital City of Bogotá and not far from small villages and towns.
