Volunteering in South America (Amazon)

Organized by: The Alternative Lives

The Alternative's Photo


We are The Alternative Lives and we’re planning on volunteering around remote areas of Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru for 5 months. Our main purpose is to help volunteer, learn from, and share the knowledge of people who are doing meaningful work. 

We’d like to work with and support indigenous groups in the Amazon Rainforest. A big part of this project will consist of going down the tributaries of the Amazon and staying with local indigenous communities. Indigenous communities have lived in harmony with nature for ages and we can learn a lot from them. Moreover, when we're not in the Amazon, we would like to work with people doing alternative/sustainable living (permaculture, cob/eco building etc.) and environmental conservation work. We would also like to work in education and with animals in need.

Our goal is to share everything we learn by launching a nice website with a range of diverse information. We truly believe that we can all learn so much from other cultures and this is one of the most meaningful ways to receive and share that knowledge. If our monetary goal is exceeded, we will expand this project, bringing you more useful information from new places.

Please consider contributing to our trip. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Thank you :)

私たちは The Alternative Livesです。これから5ヶ月間、コロンビア、エクアドル、ペルーの僻地へボランティアをしながら旅に出る計画しています。私たちの主な目的は、現地の人々を助ける事から学び、そこで仕事をしている人たちの知識をみなさんと共有することです。

私たちはアマゾンの熱帯雨林での先住民をサポートし協力したいと思っています。 旅の大半をアマゾン周辺で過ごし、地元の方たちと共に滞在する予定です。

私たちは環境を破壊せず持続可能な生活、新しい生活様式を実践している人たちと仕事をしたいと思っています。 (パーマカルチャー/コブハウス/エコビルディングなど…)また環境保全活動や教育、助けを必要としている動物にも携わりたいと思っています。


私たちのプロジェクトに是非、貢献をご検討いただければ幸いです。 よろしくお願い致します。
