Avenue of Service: International Service Area of Focus: Basic Education and Literacy
Country: Ecuador City/Region: Bahia de Caraquez
Project Description
The city of Bahia de Caraquez on the Pacific coast of Ecuador is home to the Genesis Unidad Educativa, a school built and operated to provide a high quality education to 300 students a year from Sucre and San Vicente counties. The public school system in Ecuador is grossly underfunded, underperforming, and corrupt. The alternative private schools are expensive and elitist.  The Genesis Academy strives to include students from the less fortunate socioeconomic strata of society. Adjacent to the school is an abandoned city lot that the Genesis Foundation has purchased. The Rotary Club of Spruce Grove, in partnership with the Children of Ecuador Foundation, located in Spruce Grove, and the Genesis Foundation in Ecuador are planning to redevelop the lot into a sports area for use by the children attending the school as well as the public during non-school hours.
