"From March to June I was working as a volunteer in FAP´s office. My main responsibility was to work with the web page, but I did also administrational tasks like forms for the schools. In addition to this I translated documents and articles for the webpage. In April I was visiting 3 of the schools in Puyo with Patricio. The meeting with the children and teachers in Puyo was great. The kids loved to be taken pictures of and to show us how they did the practical work in the school with plants and animals. It was amazing to experience to be able to visit and see how they run the schools in the jungle. If I had time to spend some weeks together with them in the school, I would love to that! The schools are surrounded by beautiful nature, and I think it’s amazing that the kids can learn with practical work.
I have also worked with marketing FAP´s coffee and cacao/chocolate. The products have high quality and for this reason I think that FAP has the opportunity to export to other countries. I would love to see these products in coffee bars in Norway. I think FAP is an amazing foundation and I will defiantly take my experience back to Norway with good memories. My volunteer work with FAP will also help me a lot, as I now have practical experience in the organizational industry, this is really good for my future education as I’m going to Hawaii to do my master in Global leadership and sustainable development. I can say that I fell in love with Ecuador as a country, and that FAP was part of making this experience perfect for me, I will definitely come back to Ecuador! I want to thank Flor and Patricio and the others in the office for making this an amazing experience!"

The FAP pledged to continue seeking sponsors for the proposed didactic farms since the basic concept of this is to improve the food security of school children by providing food to the School Feeding varied quality.
