The Experience

You will work on projects based on your strengths. For example, if you are a good social media administrator then: The first 2-3 days you will learn about the business and the Ecuadorian textile market until you feel comfortable with our products and core business Once you are more familiar, the idea would be to present a simple project to increase our followers on Facebook. For example, you could help us making viral videos or blogs.

Such an insightful experience, perfect for those with a business or social media background. The family are lovely and go out of their way to make you feel at home. It’s best to stay for at least 10 days/2 weeks so that you are able to make a difference and implement any necessary changes. Some members of the family speak English but the staff do not so knowledge of Spanish is advisable but not a must.

I enjoyed the experience thoroughly. The family is sweet, caring, and provided everything I needed. I had a great time with the coworkers and family including on the weekends. I enjoyed learning about the textile market in Ecuador, and specifically on how LyR is operated. After I learned about the company, we decided what the best project for me was. My main project was updating the company website, giving LyR a good foundation for their social presence. I highly recommend LyR. I'm thankful for the experience!

el proyecto fue súper interesante y me dio la posibilidad, no solo de desarrollarla, también de aprender desde la experiencia. Siempre fueron muy atentos a como estaba y como me sentía. Tumbaco es hermoso y muy tranquilo además

Caro y yo tuvimos una experiencia muy muy buena tanto con Javier, su familia y Ecuador.

El lugar de estadía es grande, limpio y completo. La gente que conoces dentro de la empresa es genial, todos aportan y trabajan duro por sacar la empresa adelante. Todos son muy amables y atentos.

Javier es un súper anfitrión, te recibe con los brazos abiertos y te ayuda con todo lo que puede, además de que es alguien en quien se puede confiar.

Sobre la ubicación de la casa, consigues movilidad sencillamente con los camiones, puedes viajar fácilmente en el país.

Una experiencia muy recomendada.

Esta experiencia me dio la posibilidad de poner en práctica muchos conceptos de mi profesión. Una iniciativa con mucha proyección que busca resaltar no solo la cultura de Ecuador, también crear conciencia de la riqueza étnica. Esto hizo que el voluntariado integrara muchas actividades y aprendizajes. Muchas gracias a Javier, a su familia y colaboradores por la acogida. Me voy convencido de un pronto retorno para participar en más proyectos. ¡Mis mejores deseos!
