Strengthening impoverished families

80% of children in Ecuador’s orphan system have at least one living parent, but their families are unable to provide for them for a variety of reasons, including poverty, incarceration, and substance addictions. With You International’s Camp Emanuel works to strengthen families by providing free lunch, childcare, and parent workshops to families across Ecuador. Twice a week, local volunteers teach Bible stories, run games, and cook a complete meal for children whose families may not be able to consistently provide for them. We currently serve 380 children and 230 families in Quito and Guayaquil and hope to see that number grow this year!
