If you have a fascination for indigenous cultures, children and teaching then this is the perfect project for you! Become a volunteer now and help teach the children of an Amerindian community while immersing yourself in the unique culture and traditions of the Indigenous people that thrives there!

This placement gives the volunteer an incredible opportunity to make a significant difference to a remote and valuable Amerindian community in the rainforests and savannahs of Guyana. The villages need enthusiastic volunteers who can become involved in community life while taking on a regular role in the school, as an assistant to the teachers.

Our volunteers stay with a host family and help around the home. Daily chores may include; helping to catch fish and learning to prepare local meals. There would also be the opportunity to get involved in other projects in the village on a case by case basis.

This Is Why

  • Experience the amazing life in the jungles and savannahs of South America, a lost world teeming with wildlife.
  • Feel the comfort of sleeping in hammocks amongst the trees and wake up to a serenade of monkeys, birds and cicadas.
  • Volunteer alongside local Amerindian people, enabling them to develop sustainable eco-tourism and protect their way of life!
  • Teach the Indigenous people and help a native Amerindian Community in need!
