Small environmental NGO, focused on andean ecosystems, more in particular to wetlands (and their complex interactions to people, culture, and more).
The volunteer program is a visual project (photography and/or videomaking) in the andean region of Sugamuxi. The Sugamuxi province is in the heart of the east andean Colombian state called Boyacá. It has 13 towns (which include the city of Sogamoso, its capital), with their own uniqueness and beauty; and has a marvelous scenery and natural spots that are quite priviledged in the country, like the 'páramo' ecosystems or the biggest lake of the country (Lake Tota) -2nd highest navigable lake of South America for its size (3,015 meters high)-.
This region is definitely worth visiting, so volunteering with us can be seen as a chance for an easy and low-cost travel opportunity, rather than a work-like experience... meaning 'cost' that one the volunteer must cope such as, transporting costs inside the region or some guides where needed, and 2 meals daily (breakfast appart, because B&B in a dorm is included for the volunteering interchange).
Help with Eco project
HQ images and or videos are aimed to be free-to-publish or copyright-free with permission given by the photographer as his/her contribution to our NGO for the project.
We expect a minimum volunteer stay of 2 weeks, and we also expect a background of outstanding experience (even as a hobby but demonstrating HQ results), in order to get not just the results but a proper advice on the project.
Hostel dormitory bed, including breakfast (B&B). Free WiFi facilities.
Although what it is explained above, we are flexible to discuss some more options, because our NGO has also other fields of work, in need of visual and art help.
The Hostel where we will accomodate the volunteer is a great option in the province for its own location & facilities, plenty of information and experience to explore from for better project results, where you also will meet other visitors and have cultural interchange with their owners. To accomodate in a private room is possible, paying the difference to a dorm rate.
