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.

    Alex

    Ecuador

    Whenever you see a group of our students laughing and smiling, you can be sure that Alex is at the heart of it. He has a warm and attractive personality which means he makes friends easily, and his facility with words makes him a natural story-teller among any group he joins. As well as being popular, he is good at sports and interested in computers. His dream of graduating with a degree in computer studies, which he has held for several years, is ever nearer to becoming a reality. It makes his mother, who he is very close to, extremely proud: he will be the first university graduate in his extensive family.
