We are Mónica (27 years), Holger (27 years), Emily (5 years), Wilo (49 years), Alba (44 years), We are living on a beautiful small farm in a village called Runtún, very close (15 minutes bus) to Baños. A beautiful place in the middle of nature, but very close to all the activities that Baños is offering! From our house you can even see the volcano Tungurahua. Our family is working in agriculture and we have some cows. It’s a perfect place to practice your Spanish as most of us only speak Spanish! However, Monica is a Spanish teacher that is fluent in English and thus always able to help you out on the farm.

You will get to know much better how an ecuadorian family lives and how we grow our food. You will try typical dishes and of course, you will practice and learn our language in a natural environment.
You will have the best experience ever!!
1.- FARM VOLUNTEERING
You could help us out in the greenhouses where we grow Babaco fruit, and Tomatoes, or help in the small organic garden that we use to grow our own vegetables. (You have to bring gloves for work. And rain boots optional.)
We would love to cook together to share recipes and typical dishes from your country!
2.- TEACHING ENGLISH
If you are an English teacher or have experience teaching, we can arrange some English classes for my daughter Emily. ( She is a fast learner and has a good pronunciation of English).
3. DESIGN A GARDEN
Since my parents are building a botanical garden, we are looking for a professional gardener or someone who can design a garden ( if you are the right person for it and can stay longer, we can arrange it with any Fee payment).
Contact us for more information!
Spanish and English
We offer a room for our volunteers which will be shared when there are more volunteers with a private bathroom, hot water. There will be 3 meals a day which will be eaten together with the family. We would love to cook together and get to know your culture a bit better. Nevertheless, since we are a farmer family with relatively a low income we ask for a small contribution for food which is $5 dollars a day per person. Thanks for your understanding!
Since Monica is a Spanish teacher we can have private Spanish classes. You would get the unique opportunity to practice every day since the family speaks Spanish only. Ask us by email for more information! We are looking forward to hear from you!
Ther are many beautiful viewpoints near hear. And we are very close to the famous "La Casa del Arbol" with the swings.

Warum lässt workaway.info Inserate von Gastgebern zu, die einen finanziellen Beitrag verlangen?
In Entwicklungsländern (wo die meisten Gastgeber gemeinnützige Arbeit oder Gemeinschaftsentwicklungsarbeit anbieten) verlangen einige unser Gastgeber einen kleinen Beitrag, um die Gastfamilie oder NGO zu unterstützen (meist handelt es sich um weniger als 5 USD pro Tag). Workaway lässt diese Art von Inseraten dann zu, wenn die Spende direkt an die Familie oder die NGO geht und nur dazu dient, die Kosten des Aufenthalts des Volunteers abzudecken. (Dies wird im Inserat des Gastgebers deutlich angegeben).
Wir lassen keinerlei Inserate von Agenturen, „Vermittlern“ oder Projekten zu, bei denen wir das Gefühl haben, dass sie Profit aus dem Aufenthalt von Volunteeren schlagen wollen.
