Dream up for Ecuador: a community center in Puerto López

Project Summary

20141024_120301Dream Up for Ecuador‘s objective is to create a community center in Puerto López, a fishing village on the Ecuadorian coast. This center will provide young children and teenagers with free creative activities, sports, homework assistance, English lessons, advice and awareness raising initiatives on health and environmental issues. Moreover, young motivated people in Switzerland will have the opportunity to travel to Puerto Lopez and to volunteer in the community center for two weeks to one month. This experience will allow them to learn Spanish, to discover a new culture and to acquire practical social experience, which could be useful for their future professional endeavors.
