About Adopt a Village International: Adopt a Village International was founded in 2003. It is a nonprofit organization based in the state of Colorado. It is made up solely of volunteers.  Its motto is to “provide a hand up, not a handout.”  The targeted areas for the organization are Peru and Ecuador.  We assist with education, job training, micro business development, and provide medical attention through medical brigades.

About the country: Covid testing will be required to enter Ecuador and also to return to the USA. Adopt a Village International follows in-country protocols as described by the Ministry of Health within Ecuador while in clinic which includes sanitation of areas, distancing, masks, and possibly face shields.

About the clinic site: Volunteers will work within existing clinic and medical facilities on the island of Santa Cruz, bringing help and medical care to the people who call this island home.

About the mission: During your time in Ecuador you will see a variety of patients and ailments. The island and the people are full of diversity and no two days will look the same. Adopt a Village International has good support from the local government and anticipates good participation in the medical brigade from the locals. This will be their 4th time returning to Santa Cruz.
