The needs in Baba, Ecuador

Though levels of poverty and social inequality are steadily falling in Ecuador, the country is still struggling to grow and children are still at risk. In 2017, 100 cases of sexual abuse were reported in public and private schools throughout the country. Advocates responded with a strong social movement that aligns with our commitment to child protection. The movement helped provide valuable statistics and momentum for laws that do a better job protecting kids and making sure schools become safer places. Your support impacted hundreds of communities—and thousands of families—with programs focused on ensuring children and youth grow up well-nurtured, in safe family environments with parents who love and respect them. Programs like nutrition education and positive discipline training reinforce the value of healthy families. Our work to strengthen families means children grow up better equipped to be active citizens so they can transform their communities.
