Opportunity Description

Host organization: K'allam'p

Location: Cotacachi, Ecuador

K’allam’p Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to regenerative agriculture, social ecology, and comprehensive resource management. The word "k'allam'p" has been used for thousands of years by the Kichwa peoples of the Andes to describe the relationship between social knowledge and the land. They offer a suite of services to holistically improve farms, lands, and communities.

As an intern, you'll contribute to research on Indigenous philosophy models that aim to promote reciprocity, balance, and overall community well-being. In this role, you will work alongside a researcher and proponent of Runa Economy and Business, passionate about exploring alternative economic models centered on socio-environmental justice and fostering long-term research collaboration. 

This internship is perfect for individuals interested in gaining hands-on experience in alternative economics, money, and capital discourse while contributing to a worthy cause.


All Global Interns receive an award totaling at least $3,000 for airfare, transportation, and living expenses. A portion of the stipend may be paid directly to the in-country host to support housing, food, and local transportation.
