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.

The $5 Philanthropist

Since the beginning of Project Ecuador we have been very fortunate to have the help of GiveMeaning.com, and especially its founder Tom Williams. Everything they have done for us, from collecting donations, to spreading the word about our project, to lending some helpful advice whenever we needed it - everything has been amazing.

Gavin recently collected a cheque from Tom for all the raised money through GiveMeaning.com. Tom posted an article about it on his blog, which is titled The $5 Philanthropist. I encourage everyone to check out Tom's thoughts. Not just on OA, but on the state of the world as he writes about it.

A massive thank you to GiveMeaning.com and to Tom Williams, Project Ecuador could not have reached the level we are at without your help. Everyone at OA wishes you all the best.

Why stop your project at soccer? How about food and tennis rackets?

Because this is our first project we decided to stick to something which everyone in the group knows and loves. Also, because of the simplicity of the sport of soccer, it makes it accessible to many more people - all you need is a ball.

Thanks for the ideas. Hope you keep following along with the journey.
