Eagle Condor Humanitarian (ECH) believes the best way create change for good is to teach others the skills for self-reliance.  Enterprise Zones begin forming local Self Reliant Associations where ECH provides grassroots training teaching people how to set personal (family) goals, strengthen their communities, learn business strategies, accounting, and marketing skills.

Upon completion of the self-reliant courses, and based on the approval of their business plan, qualified graduates may receive small loans to start, or improve, their businesses either from ECH or reliable local institutions.

Capable staff in Peru support loan recipients through regular consultations. On average, three new employment positions are created by each new business started. $250 can sponsor a participant through the first level of training.  Generous donations of $15k can set up an entire Self-Reliance Association, training up to 100 participants! Currently ECH has these programs in Chiclayo, Piura, Iquitos, and Nauta, Peru.  Programs are also underway for Colombia, including new areas in Peru.
