From the Andes to the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador is a patchwork quilt of a country. Despite the country's oil wealth, most of Ecuador’s people live in poverty.

Our programmes give children a real chance to affect decisions that can give them a better education, protect them from harm and protect their rights.

We provide practical services and work with the government to bring about lasting change for children:

  • We work in the poorest cantons of Guayas, El Oro and Esmeraldas provinces, where up to 65% of the population lives in poverty
  • A vibrant children’s movement is having a real voice in shaping decisions; we support 65 children’s groups
  • Our priority in Ecuador is making sure that the poorest 10% of children get a better education and are protected from abuse.
