Meaningful. Sustainable. Unforgettable.
Set foot on the equator, explore the capital of Quito and ascend high into the Andes Mountains as you embrace indigenous customs and culture. While you connect with local Andean communities, you’ll gain insight into the local challenges they face, like extreme poverty, access to education and economic opportunities for women. Together with community members and WE Charity, you’ll work side by side building sustainable solutions to these problems. From supporting local girls clubs to working with women’s centers and new schools, every project you touch will help strengthen the community for generations to come.
