Intercultural sharing, learning, and friendship are important to our mission.  You can join us in person in Ecuador or online for intercultural programs.  During the pandemic, we are focusing on remote opportunities, including Virtual Ventures for individuals and a variety of options for groups.  As soon as travel becomes responsible again, we plan to resume our travel volunteer programs in Ecuador, and when the security situation allows, in Mali too.

Join Tandana on an adventure of a lifetime! We offer open enrollment volunteer ventures for adults and families as well as custom group volunteer programs for all ages. These trips bring together diverse individuals united by a desire to learn, grow, share and contribute in the communities they visit. They provide opportunities to experience life in Ecuadorian or Malian communities; exchange ideas with locals of different perspectives, ages, and vocations; and to give and receive joy.

"You will go home absolutely overwhelmed by what you saw, who you met, what you've learned, and how your heart has expanded.  You will be inspired to exceed your own expectations of yourself."
