Organization Description
We are a community based organization driven by sustainability principles.The directors and founders of Sustainable Roots are a group of Biologists, Artists, Teachers, and Friends who met in Cosanga, Ecuador in 2005 and shared the vision to empower and educate the local community on the importance of sustainable living.We are currently working in the community of Cosanga, Ecuador. In the Fall of 2010 we started our work in Cosanga we now work in 4 main areas, Education, Environment, Community and Adventure. Sustainable Roots is dedicated to environmental preservation and sustainable development in communities of Latin America. We strive to enable communities to develop a healthy, sustainable, local economy and environment, all while maintaining their cultural pride and heritage. We work hand in hand with communities and see our role as facilitators of projects born from the communities ideas and needs.

We offer unique volunteer experience in Ecuador. Long term volunteers fall into two main areas, Education and Environment. Educational volunteers spend time teaching English to all age levels of the community and helping students with homework. Environmental volunteers spend time working in our greenhouse and gardens, and working on our reforestation project. Short term volunteers can help out volunteers from one or both of the long term programs or find a need and fill it for us in another aspect of our work. We are also looking for a social media intern to come and help us grow our social media presence.
