Ecuador Annual Costs
In Ecuador our basic annual running costs have fallen to £5,000 ($8,000) from over $20,000 per year now the government has closed the three schools we work in and centralized education. We now transport the children daily to the centralized school and also provide daily food and fruit, as well as materials and cultural and traditional celebrations. We also pay for two local teachers to give reinforcement classes and help with homework back in the comunities. On top of this is investment into sustainable income-generating plans.
