been in Ecuador for almost 9 months now and am loving every minute of it. All of our classes and programs have ended for Christmas vacations and I already miss my students and friends in the community. I am teaching Basic Children\'s English, Children\'s Art, and Women\'s Exercise. My other programs include Library and Agriculture, and Organizational Roles include Finance Manager, House Manager, and Grant Manager. These programs and org roles keep me busy and constantly working, but there\'s nothing better than working hard at what you\'re passionate about. If you would like to hear more about my experiences, please check out my blog at: http://haztodoconamor.wordpress.com, or send me an email at: [email redacted]!
I am raising money to...
continue my 13-month Program Director position in Ecuador working with an international non-profit, Manna Project International. This organization works to combat poverty and wealth distribution, focusing on creating a sustainable, developed community. So far I have met every fundraising goal and currently have until the end of January to raise the remaining $2,300. Which is awesome news. I was so daunted by the goal of raising this much money, but the support I have recieved has been incredible and I am so so thankful!!
1.8 million in Quito
13 million in Ecuador
42.6% of the population is below the poverty line 2007 (USAID)
22% infant mortality rate (USAID)
The money collected will go towards...
Living expenses--housing, food, bills, etc, travel in Ecuador (we take the bus everywhere! see my blog for more insight on this..!), visas, and operating expenses for the programs within the communities.
Supporters can also help by...
Praying for the residents of the Chillos Valley with whom we will be working as well as for all of the Program Directors. Also, I would love any and all suggestions for fund-raising!!
Thank you all so very much for everything!
