Ecuador is faced with many challenging issues this is why I am raising sponsorship money to volunteer. I will be climbing Scafell Pike in the summer of 2019, which stands at an elevation of 978 meters. This will be my first ever mountain that I have climbed so will be a huge challenge and achievement for me to undertake.
These are the reason why I am so passionate about raising sponsorship to volunteer in Ecuador.
Ecuador has a huge disparity between wealth and poverty, rural areas are being left behind the developing cities leading to over 50% of rural areas living below the poverty line. There is a lack of education and poor vegetable growing conditions contribute to the chronic malnutrition problem in the highlands. Deforestation is on the agenda for Ecuador, the Amazon is the worlds largest rain forest and this is contributing to Global Warming.
I will be working on project solutions, so this can be building toilets in local homes to improve health and safety. Building kitchens and dinging rooms in nearby schools, building greenhouses for families so they can grow their own vegetables, growing native plants to reforest the Amazon rain forest.
This is such an amazing journey that I will be going on and I would appreciate any dontations big or small. Thank you so much for your time in reading my story.
