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.

A quick update

Hey everyone, sorry for the delay, but the project is speeding along toward completion and keeping my time fully occupied. We are in Guayaquil now and totally finished in the Chimborazo region. Today is the last day for PE, and we will visit with a foundation called Niños con Futuro (thanks for the link Lisa), meet with the GM of Maersk to thank her, and close up shop on Project Ecuador. It has been a life changing experience for all of us.

The internet here at the hostel is free, but painfully slow, so I am going to hold off on pictures for now. When I find a faster internet I will do a full blog with pictures - till then, hold tight, I haven't forgotten about the blog.

Sergio heads home tomorrow, with all the footage, to begin post production in Vancouver. This means another YouTube will take some time. If you want to be emailed when it comes out though, just send an email to opportunitas.aequa@gmail.com and we will add you to the mailing list.

Maintain the aim.
