Condor Trust for Education

Field Partner

Since 2004, Condor Trust has supported the education of low-income students in Ecuador. To date, we have assisted over 100 young people, by providing finance and a range of other support. Many have completed not only secondary education courses but also higher education courses and are now working in the healthcare, tourism, environmental and business sectors. Through their hard work they have broken the cycle of poverty in which their families were living.
