Connect with women and explore gender issues in a diverse and unique culture.
In Ecuador, there are significant barriers for women and girls in accessing education, health care and income opportunities. Spend time with local girls clubs and women’s groups, both of whom are taking innovative approaches to empowering women. Whether you’re talking with local women who have built a business selling traditional artisans products or running confidence boosting activities with young girls, this is a unique opportunity to spend one-on-one time with women in the communities. Enjoy meaningful discussions that explore issues around girls’ education, women’s health care, and alternative income opportunities for women and families.
