Cynthia is fully funded for 2018, but she is raising funds for the current funding year.

Cynthia is a student from Ecuador. She needs $820 by August 25, 2019 to stay in school and is currently 21% toward her goal.

Raised $180 from 4 donors Needs $640


Cynthia lives with her parents and three younger brothers, aged nine, five and two, in a small rented house in a village in the mountains. Her father works on the land. His income is erratic: at times he cannot find work and at other times the severe mountain weather prevents him from working. Cynthia goes to the local school, although she will have to change schools at the end of the next academic year as her present school does not cater for the last three years of secondary education. This will mean a fairly long daily journey for Cynthia, as the nearest suitable school is several miles away. At the moment, she is happy with her friends in the local school. She particularly enjoys maths and eventually hopes to be able to find a job working with computers.

I changed school last year, so at first things were quite difficult. I have to make a long journey, and I had to make new friends. The new school is much bigger than my old school. Now, I've got used to it and I'm very happy there, and I think I have a lot of opportunities that I didn't have before.

  • Manuel




    Manuel is the second of five children. He lives with his mother, as his father has abandoned them. Manual couldn't go to school for two years because his mother couldn't afford it, so he is particularly happy to have the support of the Condor Trust and to be making up for lost time. He is a very responsible boy. His passion is playing the guitar. According to his mother he spends every moment he can practicing. His great dream at the moment is to go to Loja at Christmas. This is a town in the south of Ecuador where his grandparents live, and Manuel wants to play them some songs on his guitar.
