The Future Darwins

IOI is a wonderful organization that works not only in but also with the community to bring change in all aspects. Changing the community for the better as well as the volunteers who are exposed to such a different culture and way of life. It teaches volunteers about the beautiful mystery that is Mother Nature and the complexity that is living in a small community in Paradise Island known as Isabela. The volunteer becomes Darwin, a scientist looking for something you don’t even know you are looking for. When you find it that is the experience. That is what you leave behind and what you take with you. Hopefully, returning one day for more research.

A Journey to the Galapagos

IOI is a wonderful organization that works not only in but also with the community to bring change in all aspects. Changing the community for the better as well as the volunteers who are exposed to such a different culture and way of life. I worked as a yoga and art teacher in a local school, Jacinto. The teachers and director at Jacinto were very welcoming and would talk to me regularly. The children were terrific always very loving and ready to learn. They made saying goodbye nearly impossible. The experience as a whole was truly incredible and life changing. Anyone would be lucky to have the opportunity to work with IOI.
