Sembrar Esperanza (ECU-71)


Type: Education: Kindergarden - Country: Ecuador

Brief description and main aims

Fundación “Sembrar Esperanza” is a non-governmental organization founded in 2002 by Toni Stebler who has supported the community of Pomasqui since 1992. He was convinced that not only economic help is important, but that the understanding and mentality of the people he works with needs to change  in order to be successful in his work and make a lasting change.
 
Our aim is to improve the quality of life of people who live in at-risk areas and to promote a sustainable development.
