Education

The promotion of education has always been at the center of our commitment. After many years of supporting primary and secondary schools by improving the infrastructure (equipping and extending the buildings) and expanding the range of lessons (English, computer and environmental studies), we are currently working on a comprehensive education strategy. On the one hand, further training is regularly offered on the projects and on the self-organisation of the communities, among other things in cooperation with students from the University of Applied Sciences in Constance. On the other hand, we have established a scholarship program to enable young school graduates to study after completing secondary school. During their studies, the scholarship holders actively participate in village projects such as the water committee. Together with our Ecuadorian partners, it has been achieved that now almost all school-age children attend school, that every school child has access to secondary school and the chance to study, and that it is also possible for adults to deepen their education.
