Help build a Cultural Center in Don Juan, a fishing village struck by Ecuador's 7.8 earthquake. A seismic resistant building will house a library, computer center and training areas for 1200 villagers left homeless by the quake. We currently gather in a precarious bamboo structure called "the Library." Children come to do homework, browse encyclopedias and read. For them, the library is interesting, entertaining and provides a safe haven from grim situations caused by the housing emergency
This project provides tuition to train 32 students at a time in construction skills: masonry, electricity, carpentry for use in rebuilding damaged areas after the 7.8 magnitude Ecuadorean earthquake on April 16th.

Each course focuses on different construction skills, offered to new students.
Libraries Without Borders will bring 60 e-library programs to 8 provinces in Ecuador, including those most affected by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake of April 2016.

Volunteers for Interamerican Development Assistance
This project will fund the shipments of emergency supplies and equipment to the central hospital in Guayaquil which was devastated by the most recent earthquake. Supplies and equipment will also be shared with the clinics in the smaller towns whose infrastructure was destroyed. VIDA is anticipating sending 5 containers in 2016 with a cost of $10,000 per containers.
This project will respond to the devastating earthquake that ravaged several provinces of Ecuador, specifically Manabi and Esmeraldas, to support the local authorities and provide essential relief aid, medical services, child friendly spaces, and psychosocial care, as needed. A special emphasis will be placed on the most vulnerable groups, especially women and children.
Tens of thousands of people are still without regular fuel delivery systems, especially in the most rural areas where FRF was working after the initial disaster. FRF will send a team to first provide initial relief to the vulnerable people still in need within the hardest-hit communities in Ecuador, supporting the recovery with fuel tank deliveries. We will also work hand in hand with the local government to identify needs in creating solutions to resume fuel delivery to affected areas.
