Reaching for the Sky

Katitawa School in the rural indigenous community of Salasaca, Ecuador was an amazing place to visit and work as a volunteer teaching English.

I completed this multimedia production in the two weeks prior to returning home to Canada in May 2013 after spending 5 months in Ecuador. And almost 2 years in South America since 2010.

The video needs no introduction. It speaks for itself. Enjoy!

Click 'Vimeo' to view full screen.  And it was produced in HD so best viewed that way!

They do not accept contributions from any political or religious institutions thus maintaining the freedom and integrity of their vision and purpose. 

If you are interested in supporting this wonderful project, even small donations are graciously welcomed and can be made through  their website noted above. And if you're motivated and  wish to engage in a volunteer experience of a lifetime, applications are available on the website as well.
