Ubeci-union De Beneficios En Educacion Y Colaboracion Internacional Charity Profile
We are an Ecuadorian non-profit organization which works in the favor of impoverished people in Quito/Ecuador.
UBECI wants to take part in the process of a social change that complies with the demands of our country. Through our work experience in social projects in the past we have realized that especially the children of our society need help. By working together with children and their families we want to give them the opportunity to escape poverty and reinvent a better future for themselves.
Ubeci-union De Beneficios En Educacion Y Colaboracion Internacional Volunteer Information
UBECI is an organization that strongly relies on the support of volunteers from all over the world and we are open to all people willing to dedicate their time to social work.
We accept volunteers of all ages, minimum being 18 years old. Volunteers can start working all year round. The minimum time commitment usually is 4 weeks but depends on the project. We also work with groups of volunteers or institutions (e.g. universities, highschools, churches etc.) willing to send larger groups to our projects. In this case the minimum period of time can be shortened and these groups can do projects such as construction or painting.
Normally, our volunteers work half-day in a project of their choice. In addition to that, the preparation and planning of the work in the projects is another part of their task. Some volunteers use their leisure time to take Spanish classes, if needed.During the weekends, volunteers can travel around the country and get to know the immense scenic and cultural diversity of Ecuador.
Ubeci-union De Beneficios En Educacion Y Colaboracion Internacional Donation Information
To us it is very important that donators know what we need their support for: To offer our service free of charge to all families we need economical resources to cover on going costs for things such as water, electricity and the Ecuadorian social worker, as well as smaller but equally important things like books, pens, paper, art material, tooth brushes, soap and toilet paper. These basic supplies are of great importance for our work.
We are grateful for any kind of help: donations, financial as well as material aid are welcome and needed at all times.
