  • Description


    Hi friends, my name is Tami. I´m the Casa's manager. Casa is a cultural and educational house located in Imbabura, Ecuador. Since 2019, this place has been used to offer workshops for community children. This year, we have opened a program called "English tutoring," which helps groups of girls who present low academic performance to improve their skills in the English area.

    The project was created by family members who live in this community, so you will enjoy an experiential, cultural, and educational great moment with them. Under our values of Andean reciprocity, the Randi-Randi seeks to be that bridge between the world and our communities.
