    Hi , My Name is Alcivar Gallegos ,
    I send you my regards. here in the Province of Loja, In the Archeological & Historically rich City of Paltas, in the community of Santo Domingo de Guzman.

    Here I live with my Beautiful Wife Aracely , And My mother and Father where we have our farm that produces Mangos , Sugar Cane , Peanuts , Avocados , and bananas. I am also a Carpinter and do woodworking for Local Mayors and coffee traders from around the province.

    We live next to a fresh river that flows from the mountain-top here , where the noise that interrupts the silence is from well intentioned Birds and Breezes flowing through the valley. It's Sunny here year round , and the weather is Relaxing.

    My Family and I are interested in Volunteers who would like to share time and experience while living the everyday life here on our Farm.

    Help With the Garden , Keeping things neat and tidy , Giving a hand While we make Panela , Mani , and other local Traditions would be the extent of our invitation to our volunteers.

    We offer a nice bed and food , and give you the freedom to explore the vast unexplored wilderness we have in this small community in which , to give you an idea our community center is under a bony plum tree , the school has 7 children and less than 100 habitants. we welcome Volunteers to help in the school during school season with language exchange and simply offering a positive and educative experience for the Children of the community.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Volunteers will benefit specifically by learning traditional practices from over 100 years. From processing coffee, making sugar cane, peanut butter, traditional candies. A general benefit from this cultural exchange is the Beatiful nature in which you'll be right in the middle of.
    Fruit trees litter the property, mangoes avocado's, bananas, and a freshwater creek runs through the property where in season you can find exhilarating places to take a fresh clean swim after heating up a sweat on the farm.

    You'll be given the opportunity to help in the local school with language exchange, and with a professional title we can see about teaching a class with permission of the director who is a close friend.

    From there we are happy to work with qualified volunteers to see how we can make your stay most favorable for you and for the community.

    See you soon!
