Hi, we are preparing our building for a Project we have in mind and so we need volunteers to set everything up. This is going to be a daycare for children ages 1-5. But before we can start we need to do some repairing, gardening, painting and general maintenance of the place and we would be very happy to have some help.
We are currently living at the property until we finish setting things up. My mom is a psychologist and I’m a software programmer. My grandmother also lives with us. We also have employees who live in this property but we need a bit more help.
We are located in Tumbaco, a suburban area of Quito. There is a bus line that passes right in front of the property.

Help around the house
If you don't know anything about agriculture, this is a good opportunity to learn about plants, poultry, compost and other environmetally friendly activities as I want this day care project to be oriented towards ecology.
Your chores would be general cleaning, painting walls, moving stuff around, watering the plants, weeding out the gardens, planting new plants, decorating the place and similar activities.
I offer room (with bathroom) and breakfast for 2-4 hours a day of your time.
You can use the kitchen to cook your own food! Sometimes we drive about 5 hours to Colombia to do some shopping and if you are interested you could join us, maybe learn a little bit about the "Ecuadorian/South-American" ways of living.
Quito has the biggest historic downtown in America, and was the first city declared world heritage by the UNESCO.
Good museums, nightlife and we are close to places like Mindo (1 hour away) and Otavalo (1 and a half hours away) also fairly close Baños (4 hours away)
