Work with indigenous women in Cayambe, Ecuador

Cayambe, Ecuador

Climate protection, a better quality of life of indigenous families and a more equitable society: These are the main objectives of SEDAL, which I also want to persue through my voluntary service in Ecuador.

About this project

Hello friends!

Three months ago a new and exciting chapter of my life began: I started volunteering in Ecuador under the programme "weltwärts - the development volunteer service". Thanks to the sending organization "Vereinigung junger Freiwilliger" and the host organization "Aves de Paso - Zugvögel" I received the opportunity to work closely with the foundation "SEDAL - Servicio para el Desarrollo Alternativo" for a whole year.

SEDAL is an NGO committed to promoting an alternative form of rural development that protects the environment, improves the quality of life of rural and indigenous families in the Ecuadorian Sierra and is committed to a fairer and more equitable society. SEDAL supports agricultural and indigenous organizations such as "BioVida" in the promotion of sustainable agriculture and solidarity economy. In particular, the focus is on women's agricultural work: Women’s empowerment and the development of their leadership potential are the main objectives pursued by SEDAL.

I would be very grateful if you could support me in this project with a donation for my organization: Through your help, you can promote a socio-cultural, Ecuadorian-German-Italian exchange, support local organizations and contribute to the enhancement of the role of women in the communities of the Canton Pichincha.

Thank you so much for your support!
