The one month Training Practicum course on NGO Management is designed as a preparatory course for a larger 5 month management position working for the Ecuadorian based non-profit, Fundacion Runa, as their regional coordinator in Archidona, in the province of Napo. Fundacion Runa is a community-based Ecuadorian not-for-profit organization, dedicated to sustainable development and cultural preservation for indigenous Amazonian communities. Fundacion Runa currently provides technical assistance to over 600 indigenous Kichwa farming families in the Napo, Pastaza, and Morona-Santiago provinces of the Ecuadorian Amazon, helping to plant organic agro-forestry systems with guayusa, food crops, fruit trees, forestry species, and medicinal plants. The training practicum, as mentored by Runa’s president, Tyler Gage, will be divided into two segments. The first portion will take place at Runa headquarters in Quito, Ecuador, and will focus on Runa’s organizational structure and order of operations. Included in this review will be a tutorial on Runa’s U.S based LLC, Fundacion Runa’s incorporation as an NGO in Ecuador, Runa’s Fair Trade business practices, as well as an overview of current regional projects, strategic alliances, staffing and internship positions, investors and investment strategies, budget, and an outline of responsibilities as Runa’s regional coordinator in Archi-dena. The second segment of the course will take place in Archidena, where the course will emphasize becoming familiarized with specific regional projects, staff, and local farming communities. A basic introduction to the management responsibilities as regional coordinator will be further outlined. These will include, but are not limited to-- overseeing data collection, analysis, and record keeping from regional surveys of local farmers, managing the care taking of plant nurseries, collaborating and directing projects alongside local staff and field technicians, and coordinating work opportunities and programs for other volunteer-internship positions. Additional technical information to be reviewed in the second half of the course will be on sustainable guayusa agro-forestry, reforestation initiatives, conservation issues, and preserving cultural heritage of the indigenous Kichwa peoples.
