We are pleased to provide an update on the work that has been done at Fundación Azulado in the last three months. Firstly, we are continuing our collaboration with Killkay Foundation to implement the Mi Escudo program in the indigenous community of El Cercado in Otavalo. The program has been well-received in this community, which has a population of 2,000 inhabitants, and we have received requests from other nearby communities for our intervention.
Secondly, we have successfully completed our work with 5 schools in the rural area near Quito, reaching a total of 5,496 children and 160 teachers through the implementation of the Mi Escudo program. We are proud of the impact we have made in these communities and are excited to continue our work in the next semester in 9 schools.
Lastly, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the first menstrual education kit created in Ecuador, called Vestida de Rojo. The menstrual education is a vital topic that is often overlooked, but when given appropriate education, women and girls can feel empowered and capable of making informed decisions about their menstrual and sexual health. Moreover, menstrual education promotes gender equality and inclusion. With the Vestida de Rojo kit, we aim to empower girls and adolescents by providing verified and reliable information about their bodies and menstrual health.
Thank you for your continued support in our efforts to empower and educate communities in Ecuador.
