OUR COMMUNITIES: QUITO, ECUADOR

Quito, the capital city of Ecuador, boasts one of the largest and most beautifully preserved historical colonial centers in Latin America. But rapid, unplanned urbanization and a growing population of 3 million inhabitants have led to massive expansions of the city. We focus our efforts in Southern Quito—an area marked by industrial and residential sprawl— where the greatest disparities in access to basic services are seen
