Operations at our site in Ecuador are better than ever, thanks to the help of spring break volunteers who came to lend a hand this past month. The groups focused on projects for teenagers, health and nutrition projects, and construction and repairs for our community center and other partner organizations.
They also were able to spend a lot of time getting to know the area of the Chillos Valley and Quito, as well as spending valuable time with community members and learning about the culture of Ecuador.
Since both group's time with us in Ecuador, we've seen increased attendance at the Teen Center thanks to all the help by the University of Georgia. We've also had triple and quadruple the average attendance at our Diabetes Club meetings in the newly remodeled and painted kitchen space in the community center, thanks to the work of Vanderbilt University volunteers.
Check out these videos showing their time in Ecuador and the many projects they were able to help out with at our community center, with partner organizations, and around the community:
