Education is one of the greatest gifts both given and received. We believe that the opportunities fostered by education are limitless.
It has been said that education is the passport to the future. At Spirit of Wellness, we create programs to provide the passports so those we serve can travel towards success.
Coastal Ecuadorians do not have any modern industries or access to an advanced educational system.
Only 40% attend high school and a mere 9% benefit from higher education.
They lack basic resources to facilitate either earning 21st century wages or learning 21st century skills.
Only 5% of homes have internet access.
The Ecuadorians desperately desire financial security but not at the expense of their environment.
Tourism is the main economy, but even so, the global brands and resort hotels are kept away to preserve the local way of life.
This means that many who work in the tourism industry are paid very little, often barely enough to feed themselves and never enough to support a family.
