Tomo Hi tddong, sorry about the delayed response! I thought I responded but I guess it never got posted... It is with Volunteer Eco Students Abroad. If you would like more information feel free to view their website or I can answer what I know. www.vesabroad.com I hope this helps, Tomo

backpackingoz Hi there, I´ve checked out the site and more than a charity it looks to me like a very lucrative business. Pity :(

Tomo Hi Backpackingoz... bummer you think so, as I am the Director of International Programs and we have helped countless families around the Amazon and Fiji in recent years, I am not sure where you are getting "lucrative business" from unless you are one of those people who believe that because you are donating your time, that that should be enough... where do you think supplies come from? Food? Water? Boat rides to and from sites? the $10,000 water catchments that we install? If you could please let us know if you find another organization which offers a "cheaper" version of our voluntour program, we would be ever so grateful for you to pass this info on, as after extensive research, we have been proven to actually be the MOST affordable voluntour option in both North America and Austrlalasia.
Sincerely,
Shona Luciani

tddong Thanks Tom, great information awesome trip. I would love to go but summer is too tight for me since I'm working now. I'll take another chance, winter trip sounds good to me. Thanks a lot of the information. Hope you will have a great time in Ecuador.
