Early childhood learning centers operate in many of the rural coastal communities in Ecuador. The government provides the building and loving teachers, but not much else. This means that the facilities are often woefully inadequate. Many buildings do not have electricity, weather resistant roofs or operating bathroom facilities. Yet, despite these conditions, invariably, what visitors notice are the bright and cheerful wall displays in the immaculate and orderly classrooms filled with happy and engaged children.
It is remarkable what these extrodnary teachers and school administrators accomplish with so little. And with just a little more support, they can accomplish even more. That's where organizations such as Spirit of Wellness can make an impact.
Patty Rodriquez, Director of the center in San Pedro, had hopes of working bathrooms near the classrooms so that the 40 students who attend the center would not have to be carried through rain and slick mud to bathrooms that did not have consistently operating toilets or sinks.
After sharing her concerns with the Spirit of Wellness team and supplying a well-researched proposal for the construction, the team got to work securing funding for the project and a were rewarded with contributions from donors who recognized the importance of adequate facilities.
Dreams + Resources = Success
--the rallying cry of the Spirit of Wellness team!
Patty, the teachers, the parents and especially the children now have safe, operational bathrooms that will foster an atmosphere of learning ensuring brighter futures.
