Our Adventures

"It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves - in finding themselves." Andre Gide

Rock Climbing Est. 2010

Rock climbing is an exciting adventure that the students would otherwise lack access to. It is a great way to keep in shape and helps the mind to grow and expand as students confront their fears. Since students depend on each other for basic safety and encouragement it also acts as a great team building exercise.

Camping Est. 2013

Camping is a great way to explore nature and spend time "roughing it".  Even students from rural Ecuador sometimes need a break from cell phones, Facebook and Twitter.

Bird watching Est. 2016

This may not seem like the most adventuresome hobby but it provides our students with another outlet to explore and understand their country.  The Cosanga Birdwatchers Club was established in 2016 by a group of local bird aficionados.  We fully support their efforts and will be helping anywhere we can!

Lifetime experience trips Est. 2011

Students who attend our classes regularly are rewarded with a trip within the country of Ecuador.  Many of these students lack the resources to travel and  experience the beauty of their own country.  Sustainable Roots opens the door to those opportunities allowing students to experience things they never dreamed possible.
