The Amazon Rain forest is the life spring of the planet – the source of the water we drink, the air we breathe, the weather we feel and the superfoods we eat. Hundreds of species of tropical birds take to the skies, waters are full of exotic fish and monkeys hop between trees in the canopy above.

Why the Amazon and the Nutritional Forest?

In 2022 the Rotary clubs in District 5110 funded a nutritional forest project, we are planting 12,500 trees to feed 1,200 people in five indigenous communities. Join us to see what has been happening, enjoy some superfoods and great ecotourism fun.

We will meet with our partnering Rotarian’s and Rotaractor’s in the capital city of Quito and will live with the villagers in the Amazon. We will help them tend the seeds in the nurseries already built by our global grant, plant fruit and nut trees that will provide nourishment, and we will experience their day-to-day activities.

This is a Service trip with Purpose and Exploration

You can’t go to Ecuador without including local superfoods and chocolate in your daily diet. A healthy feast at that. Not only will you experience the exquisite chocolate they use to make the finest chocolate in the world, you will make some for yourself.

We will explore other service opportunities to support the Amazon, its people and wildlife. We work with some of the most dedicated non-profits that not only help the Amazon but live here. We will visit the 5,000 acre wildlife preserve where they rehabilitate animals rescued from animal traffickers and see what we can do to help.

We will experience the Andes Mountains, the Amazon Rain Forest and visit the spa town where the waters are heated by the nearby volcano. Have lunch in Quito’s historic center, the largest and best-preserved in the Americas. See the remnants of the Inca Empire and the “center of the world”.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to not only visit but live the Ecuadorian experience.
