Today in this special edition we want to inspire you and make you part of a special community project that will start soon. Ecuador is facing enormous challenges: prison riots, expanding drug cartels and high levels of domestic violence.In Ecuador: 38% of all children face extreme violence at home. That's 2.2 million children.
Together with the population in Pifo, a town near the capital Quito, we will be working together for the next 3 years to make the living environment of children and their families safer. This is only possible if we take care of each other.Our work is based on bringing people together because where there are people,there are endless possibilities. Together with the children, their families and their community, we can create the peace and tranquility that all children and their parents need.
What's the plan? There will be a community house in the centre of Pifo, where people are welcome to come by for a good conversation, a cup of coffee or a simple meal! From there we will work together through the economic empowerment of fathers and mothers so that they can financially care for their children, psycho-social guidance, discussion groups, cooperation with local organizations such as churches, schools and the local government network, (police, children's courts,etc.) to prevent violence, but also to ensure that the necessary response mechanisms are in place.
In order to implement this, our fundraising target is a total of USD 90,000. Wilde Ganzen and Cape Capital from Switzerland have both donated the fantastic amount of USD 30,000. We are very grateful to them for that. We are therefore still missing USD 30,000, which is needed to maintain the centre, pay the staff and economically empower the families. Do you want to participate and directly change the lives of children? Then join us! We will be actively updating you for the next three years with direct stories from the children, families and community!
