Plan started working in Ecuador in 1962, in the urban marginal areas of the City of Guayaquil. Today, more than 800,000 persons (400,000 girls and boys) participate in our projects across Azuay, Bolívar, Cañar, Chimborazo, Cotopaxi, Guayas, Loja, Los Ríos, Manabí, Pichincha and Santa Elena provinces.
We work in over 1,000 communities to ensure that girls, boys and adolescents in the country can enjoy a dignified life by fully exercising their rights.
The main groups we work with are girls, boys and adolescents living in situations of vulnerability and inequality.
‘One scholarship, one future’
"There are a lot of other boys and girls from my community and other nearby ones that got scholarships too."
