Volunteers on the TEACHING project play a crucial role in exposing students to new subjects and disciplines. Inspiring them to think about their future and to follow their dreams. By teaching them new languages they will have more opportunities and chances in their lives, also more equal opportunities in future careers . 

This is a highly rewarding project and through sharing knowledge and life experiences, volunteers can demonstrate that with a bit of hard work, anything is possible.

Volunteers work with the support of Volunteer in Colombia local team and placement staff. Do not need to be qualified or experienced teachers to participate. However, we encourage volunteers to come prepared with a can do attitude. And a lot of initiative to work as part of a team and/or alone, it is very necessary. The TEACHING path may be for you.

ELDERLY CENTRE

ELDERLY CENTRE

ELDERLY CARE CENTRE PROJECT:

At the elderly care centre project, volunteers will be helping the ones that one day make a difference with a smile and love. By supporting the elderly you will feel how much a touch of loved costs. 

The elderly care centre project

Will support the elderly people that needs assistance in this time of their lives. Sometimes, people just needs somebody to help them and give a little push to become more independent. In Colombia, there is very little financial assistance from the government to support elderly people, and volunteers can make a difference in this social project.

Due to war, neglect, poverty and disease, families can find themselves living in homes with up to 10 other people. They cannot afford to feed every mouth in the house, and with around 70% of elderly people in Colombia suffering from long-term illnesses, the families cannot afford the required health attention. 

This unfortunately leads to more and more elderly people being abandoned, and left to fend for themselves on the streets, and when suffering from certain illnesses, such as dementia and pneumonia, survival is extremely difficult.

Volunteers on the Elderly Care project, work in care centres for the elderly. In these centres, the elderly receive love, food, shelter, personal care and medication. With the help of volunteers, assisting with daily activities like entertainment, reading, writing, drawing, assisting cooking and feeding, the local staff can increase the number of people they look after, providing them with the right care to carry on living in a more dignified environment.

 A can do attitude and a lot of initiative to work as part of a team and/or alone it is very important.

THE TEQUENDAMA WATERFALL

THE TEQUENDAMA WATERFALL

VISIT TO THE TEQUENDAMA WATERFALL:

The Tequendama fall is a natural waterfall located in the municipality of Soacha.

Whose legend, according to a Muisca myth, was formed by divine action to evacuate the waters that flooded the savanna of Bogotá. Some studies indicate that this could have happened effectively, and that its formation could occur in a short time.

After traveling more than 100 km through the cundiboyacense plateau and the Bogotá savanna, the Bogotá River falls from about 132 meters above a circular rocky abyss forming the waterfall, which is in a wooded region of permanent fog. Part of its waters are also fed by the overflow of the Muña Dam.

The magnificent Castle built on the edge of the waterfall, is an history museum now after 70 years of being abandon by their owners. There is a lot of history and legends to learn in here.

But before arriving to the Tequendama Waterfall we will take you around:
