About this program

Volunteer and provide education outreach for child workers in the markets in Ecuador. Based in Quito you will help educate children, aged three years old and upward, who work up to ten hours a day. They work in the markets, streets, and countryside of Ecuador to support their families. This intervention program takes a proactive approach, traveling to the markets around southern Quito, setting up tents, and providing an early-years education program for the younger children, and homework support for those older. By meeting these children on their turf, the program has achieved great success in recruiting and maintaining attendees to the pre-school programs, along with an ultimate reduction in the children’s work hours and in drop-out from public schools.
