The Ecuador Initiative

Ecuador Map


CAHSS signed a memorandum of understanding, MOU, with ESPOL (Escuela Superior Politecnica del Litoral ) in 2010. Under this MOU, ESPOL has acted as our host during two Global Courses, one in 2010 and the other in 2012. During these two visits we had the opportunity to learn from many experiences that have the potential to develop into exiting projects.

Potential Project

The Ser Paz project in Guayaquil, Ecuador represents a potential partnership. Ser Paz is a non-violent youth movement initiated by youth worker, Nelsa Curbelo that brings together street gangs to provide services to the struggling community. Gang members band together out of a need for unity, structure, and love when their social fabric has been torn apart. MI CASA Research Group would like to explore mutual interest for collaboration with this organization.
