Sustainable community plans empower children

Pick your cow parts!
Pick your cow parts!

GVI Ecuador project manager Tracey has come up with a great fundraising initiative for our sustainable community schemes.

Donations are used to purchase cows and guinea pig enclosures. The aim is to empower children by giving them an income stream to make sure that they are not excluded from education due to lack of funds. At the same time they learn a trade such as cheese and yogurt production or raising and selling Guinea Pigs.

The cows and guinea pig enclosures are expensive so to make this option available to more donors Tracey and her team have made artwork to value the different aspects of the cow and the value of a guinea pig and reached out to donors. By breaking a larger goal down it becomes more accessible and many of your have responded to this campaign with generous donations.

These plans are already working very well on the ground and we are very happy with the progress. News to follow soon.

All three schools in which we work got a new coat of paint inside and out, plus some well needed DIY ahead of the start of the new school year. Thanks and congratulations on a fantastic job go out all the volunteers and staff who worked long hours over a 2 week period to get the job finished.

The teachers and children, plus community members were delighted with the results – well done everyone!

Another successful end of school year in Ecuador

Once again we got to celebrate the graduation of our 7th graders at the 3 schools in which we work in Ecuador. Up at Huayrapungo, Diana and Luisa, the two inaugural beneficiaries of our new High School sustainable initiative, Plan Cuy, enjoyed a quiet day of celebrations with volunteers and the children. Plan Cuy (or Guinnea Pig) involves providing families with a suitable pen and breeding Cuy which can generate food and income and ultimately keep the kids in school.

And the great news is….all of this year’s graduates will be going to High School with the support of GVI!!

At the community Larcacunga Senorita Fanny organized a big party to mark the end of term, it was great to see the community celebrating and the kids succeeding.

Thank you so much for your support!

Education continues apace in the Andes

The first three months of the year has seen huge progress with the children, especially as many teachers are missing school for new training, we are able to continue all education so the children do not miss out. The children in secondary school are still afforind their secondary educations with the proceeds from Plan Moo, the cows donated to the families. Many thanks

Secondary school is milked for all it is worth

The Plan Moo scheme we set up last year has seen its first year of results, with most of the children from one of our communities managing to pay their own way in secondary school with the proceeds from selling milk from their cows. In other communities, utensils were handed out to the children making the step up and they are well on the way in the educational year. Thanks for everyone's support and Happy New Year cheers
