Education & nutrition for 100 children in Ecuador

by Fly The Phoenix Vetted since 2012 Top Ranked Site Visit Verified


We provide local teachers and daily food and fruit in some of the poorest, most rural, communities in Ecuador where finding enough money to feed the family is as much as they can afford. Yet education is the key to development, to bringing a family out of poverty. We believe, we can get more children into further education, something they desperately want, through the support of generous donors.

Children from indigenous rural villages are being increasingly left behind by main stream schooling as their families cannot afford the materials or transport, leaving them without the opportunities that every child deserves. This leaves them vulnerable as they join adult life, without practical vocational skills and the opportunity to gains good employment upon graduation.


Every child needs to be armed with the right skills when they leave school. This programme gives these children exactly that, the skills, the confidence, the knowledge for them to go out there, get a good job, with a good salary and bring their family out of poverty. By providing more teachers in each community and daily hot food and fruit, we can ensure the children get a better education and nutrition.

Long-Term Impact

This programme feeds children what they need for a better future. As generations get better education, each further generation will reap the benefits and communities will go from strength to strength. By using sustainable in-country plans we are making this education a permanent fixture in these indigenous children's lives. They won't always have to rely on hand outs, they won't always need hand outs but right now, you can gift a child the future we all deserve.
