Iltaqui and Jawapamba, Ecuador:
Project Focus - Keep children from going hungry to allow them to focus on their education
Project Story – Upon interviewing local community members, it was found that missing school to find food was a common occurrence for children. It was agreed that if ECH would build a kitchen, and supply a nominal monthly food stipend, community members would take shifts to cook the food and build a garden. Attendance has increased significantly and today well over 100 children are given meals in exchange for attending school.
Additional Expedition Help: In 2010 the school was cleaned top to bottom, the 2011 expedition project focused on building a new pre-school, and in 2012 expeditioneers worked with community members on community improvement goals.
