OA's Project Ecuador

Opportunitas Aequa's first project is the collection of new and used soccer equipment to be transported and distributed to the rural province of Chimborazo in Ecuador. The goal of Project Ecuador is to deliver 1000 soccer balls, and 1000 pairs of soccer cleats to some of the most impoverished children in Ecuador.

Location: Victoria, British Columbia, Canada


Ecuador equipment totals are here.

December 17th, 2006.
OA's Victoria Headquarters.

Another decent deflation party (our 6th), a great gaggle of new volunteers (20 in all), and a total tally on all of our collected equipment thus far.

Drum roll please .........

1306 soccer balls
696 pairs of cleats and runners

Still short on the cleats, but way over on the balls. Still a lot of work to do, but it is energizing to have a full tally of what we have got. The excitement has me alliterating unnecessarily, and for that I apologize.

Keep checking back, there is a lot more to come today.
