Impact Ecuador exists to support the people of Carmen Bajo, a marginalized neighbourhood in Quito, Ecuador through the ministry of the Carmen Bajo Church. The community struggles with high levels of teenage pregnancy, dysfunctional families, poverty, child mistreatment, malnourishment, and alcoholism.
2017 marks the 10th year of Impact Ecuador’s partnership in Carmen Bajo! During this time we have been privileged to witness the transformation of many lives.
Your support will help us with two main projects:
1) The children’s nutrition and tutoring centre – Volunteers and staff provide children with a hot meal, tutoring and most importantly a place to feel safe and loved.
2) Post-secondary education - More and more students who were part of the children’s program are graduating high school. Impact Ecuador has recently implemented a scholarship program to help students with some of the costs associated with post-secondary studies.
