What is The Quito Project?
  Feb 05 2019

The Quito Project is a student organization at the University of Michigan that travels to Quito, Ecuador every summer, partnering with local university Universidad de San Francisco Quito to run a free summer camp for approximately 60 children ages 5-12. These are children that have been recognized by the Ecuadorian government as kids experiencing extreme poverty. Kids as young as five years old don't get enough to eat, others sit at home the whole summer with nothing to do but wait the whole day for their parents to come home from work. Our program does as much as possible to help with these situations, giving them two meals a day as well as a place to learn and have fun. We also provide hygienic and school supplies to help give them the tools they need to succeed through education, encourage them to continue on to higher education, and provide them with the basic necessities every child deserves.
