Hi, please help me to support the tuition of 216 scarce resource's children from Bahía de Caráquez, a small coastal city at Ecuador.

They study at the Sathya Sai School, a private, non-denominational, day school, that was founded in 2001, after a great earthquake that devastated the city, with the aim to give a long term help to the community.

The children that go to the school live in reed houses, they and their families subsist with less than $120 USD per month, walk through dirt roads to get to the school and most of their families cannot achieve the payment of electricity and water services every month.

Since 13 years ago, the School have the great blessing to give education to hundreds of this children, giving them the opportunity to build a better future for them and their families.

Actually the school is educating 216 children from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 10, the school founders have achieve to mantain the school through all this years, giving access to free, valuable education and one meal per day to all the students, who ussually doesn't have the resources to eat three times per day.

But, there have arrive difficult times and they are having troubles getting enough money to keep paying teachers, maintaining in good state the facilities and getting all the pedagogic material that is needed, that's why I ask you to help however you can.

Please join to our cause, and help us to keep educating all the beloved students,

Thank you with all my heart

Hello, as you know Ecuador had suffer an earthquake of 7.8 and Bahía de Caraquez, was one of the more affected cities.

Our school is based in Human Values, and after this misfortune we take action immediately helping our community with food, mattresses and water.

Our school had become a help center that also received doctors to give medical services to the wounded. We share some photos with you.

In this difficult moments we need your help more than ever, not just for help our community, but also to rebuild the damage structures and to build two more classes for our children.

Please help us to get 30,000 USD, the new school year starts on May, so we are running out of time.

Thanks a lot, with love
