Who we are: Sierra Flor Foundation is a non profit organization dedicated since 16 years ago to the integral education of children and youth from low-income rural area of Mulaló - Cotopaxi province in Ecuador. We provide love, care and early stimulation for preschool children and give quality education for primary and secondary students. In addition, we provide breakfast, fruit brakes, lunch and extracurricular activities.

1. Experienced and trained (bilingual, English and Mandarin speakers).

3. Primary school (bilingual or English speakers) teachers.
4. Individuals with experience with fundraising that want to make a meaningful contribution to the sustainable development of our community.
5. Doctors, nurses, or senior (at least in your fourth year) medical students to collaborate with our medical program.
The volunteers form an integral part in the development of the Project because they contribute their experiences in diverse cultures, in life and in academic support, allowing the children to see that there exists a real world beyond their borders. They also create the necessity in the students to utilize the languages that they are acquiring, generating a medium of multilingual communication.
In exchange for the valuable collaboration of the volunteers, the Sierra Flor Foundation offers food and housing in the volunteer house located within the parameters of the foundation.
