This important project was created with the goal of helping to improve the English speaking abilities of some of the poorest residents of Quito, Ecuador. 

The Teaching English program aims to serve one of the poorest communities in Quito, housing mostly migrant families coming from the surrounding countryside. The program’s foundation is for the integral development of the local children through projects of education, nutrition, health and recreation. Native English speakers are desperately needed in teaching placements here to improve the children’s English skills and help them prepare for a better future. While English is widely taught throughout the country from primary school onwards, the special value of this work by volunteers is in delivering correct language usage from a native English speaker’s viewpoint. Hence, previous experience and prior training are not essential. As is common in many of the worlds poorer communities, an ability to speak English unlocks a new world of possibilities for children with greater access to education and work opportunities.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free English language classes to children in primary schools in Quito
  • Improve the future prospects of some of Quito’s most impoverished children, and help them to break the poverty cycle
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike.
