Ecuador (Photos)

Ecuador is a stunningly diverse country. From the Galapagos Islands to the Pacific Coast, from the cordillera of the Andes to the mysterious and remote Amazon jungles, there’s a lot to see and do. This trip was my first experience with voluntourism.

A group of us from university associated through Engineers Without Borders to bring clean drinking water to an Andean village for the first time. This was no rag-tag operation though. We spent the year prior to the project planning and designing the system, and 2 weeks of hard labor to pull the project off. There were loads of challenges like working at high altitude, and trying to find building materials in a developing country, but it was well-worth the effort. Turning on that tap for the first time and seeing that we could finally make a difference in these good people’s lives was an amazing moment.
