Looking Forward - 2020

Our board and Volunteer Coordinators have identified possible improvements, depending on funding and favorable cooperation with local organizations:

  • Need to expand the meal services to accommodate additional people, resulting from closure of a local “Hogar de Ancianos” (Elder Home).
  • Expansion of support from Jet Blue, once our legal status as an Ecuadorian foundation is finalized.
  • Liaison with local schools and service organizations to distribute/sell donated. items.
  • Organization of shelter housing for homeless elders.
  • Improved irrigation for the cornfields.
