At a Glance

1.5 Week • all costs included • fundraising available

Venture from the sun soaked coast of Ecuador to the peaks of Cajas national park 14,000 ft above sea level. Contribute to the launch of GSE’s programs in Cuenca, Ecuador, and the growth of our programs in Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador. In Bahía de Caraquez, Ecuador, work alongside local student leaders in their greenhouses, collaborate on murals, and trek through tropical dry forests supporting reforestation efforts. Enjoy tranquil evenings watching bioluminescent waves as the sun sets, then adventure across Ecuador to Cuenca. Set in the majestic Andes Mountains, colonial Cuenca is a pristine cobblestoned gem. Get your hands dirty alongside local students as we start a school garden movement in Cuenca. Visit busy artisanal markets, learn local dance, taste the food of the Andes, and explore nearby waterfalls and peaks.

Yes, the trip leaders are inspiring because of the way the program came together and was manifested. After working with people here and looking at our progress from prior trips I feel powerful and able to make a change if I put my mind to it.
