Your Donations in Action - Providing Urgent Aid to Struggling Families - Sept. & Oct. 2020

Food delivery to participants
Food delivery to participants

Greetings from Otavalo, where the Ayni Ecuador Foundation has been hard at work putting your kindhearted donations to use helping some of the hundreds of impoverished people selling items in the streets of the urban center in order to survive. Because of your and GlobalGiving’s generosity, we have been able to accomplish the following in the past two months:

  • Identification and registration of 100 of the most vulnerable street vendors for active participation in the program, with another 50 on a waiting list.
  • Distribution of more than 4000 kilos of healthy food in bimonthly deliveries to families experiencing significant food scarcity, and in some cases, severe malnutrition.
  • Creation of a vocational profile for 65 of the program participants (so far) resulting from 1- hour private sessions of vocational support with an experienced professional.
  • Formation of coping and self-empowerment strategies for 65 participants (so far) resulting from 1-hour private sessions of psychosocial coaching with a qualified professional.

The assistance we have been able to provide thus far has been very gratefully received. Recipients have expressed how the food aid has been vital in terms of sustaining their basic dietary needs, and the professional support sessions have been very well received, with frequent requests for additional sessions.

We’ve uploaded an informative progress report on our website which includes more detailed demographic information about our program beneficiaries and our activities, so please read more about what your valuable contribution has enabled us to achieve so far by clicking the Your Donations in Action link below.

In addition to the photos provided with this report, please check out the campaign photo gallery on GlobalGiving or visit our Facebook page (FundacionAyniEc) for more images of the assistance your kind donations have facilitated.

We’ve also been in the news—click the "El Norte" newspaper article link below to read one of several press reports (in Spanish) about our work. We’ve also uploaded photos of print articles on our campaign fundraising page.

In closing, thank you again for supporting our efforts to provide humanitarian relief to an overlooked, genuinely at-risk segment of the population. The foundation and our beneficiaries are immensely grateful for your help.
