Guatape is the ideal place to spend a few weeks or a month doing volunteer work in the community. We support the rural community of La Meseta located in the mountains above Guatape. This area was very hard hit during the guerrilla 10 years ago and the people have suffered a lot, but you will be impressed by their resilience and optimistic attitude! There are ample opportunities to volunteer in La Meseta including getting involved in the following programs:
Work with young kids in the school
Volunteer at the foundation for handicapped children
Milk cows and pasteurization
Work on various environmental projects in the area such as the new water treatment plant, recycling, maintenance, erosion control, etc
Stay in the Hostel or live with a family in the community
We can organize a long term stay package including Spanish lessons, kayaking, mountain biking and laundry--just ask!
Admin fee: $50,000pesos/week
Have the experience of a lifetime and what could be the highlight of your trip to South America!
