Ecuador is experiencing an orphan crisis.
Ecuador has . . .
- Approximately 210,000 orphans and abandoned children.
- An estimated 90-100 orphanages or live-in institutions to house these minors.
- No official foster care system.
- Many children living in institutions who are not officially “adoptable”.
For these reasons, Contigo exists. It’s our desire that every abandoned child knows that they are not alone.
With You International and Fundacion Contigo is the leading not-for-profit organization in Ecuador exclusively dedicated to caring for orphans and children at risk through provision, training and advocacy in order to effectively impact institutional living, adoption, and foster care. With You International is a 501c3 non-profit in the United States of America. Fundacion Contigo is a Foundation legally recognized as such by the Government of Ecuador.
