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


Keepin' on, keepin' on

Sorry for the space between updates but work at the field is keeping us away from the internet. I have a few quick updates, but life here has settled into a nice little routine of work, sleep, and eating guinea pig (not by choice).

We are working hard at Guabug (site of our second field), it is in an incredibly beautiful location and things are going well. Work at Santa Isabel is nearing completion, the community is just finishing putting gates on the fences. We will have a game with the community on Saturday, and tilling and seeding will begin immediately afterwards. Pretty cool.

Things have been decidely less cool in Guayaquil. Gavin and Roberto send frequent updates on how frustrating the process of getting our equipment has been. Ecuador works at its own pace, and what was once this past Monday, has turned into hopefully by the end of the week. I will let everyone know the second we have all the stuff in our posession, until then, everyone go back to crossing your fingers for us.

But because I hate to leave the OA faithful with bad news ... expect the second YouTube video to be up for the weekend. We are spending what spares moments we have putting it all together. A little behind? Yes. A work of cinematic genius? Probably not. But, are you still excited? You better believe it.

Keep your ear to the ground, we will be back for the weekend.
