Nearly 60% of Quito’s population lives in extreme poverty. These areas often lack such basic services as electricity and running water. Many of the urban poor are migrants from rural areas who come to the city in search of a better life. Unfortunately, there are few opportunities for employment. Poverty can lead not only to malnutrition, illness, delinquency, alcoholism and domestic violence, it also worsens environmental contamination.
We offer social welfare programs in Quito, in pre-schools, children's centers, residential orphanages and also medical clinics and hospitals.
