Young People against Cancer Foundation

Ecole supports different projects all over Ecuador in different ways. Last Christmas Ecole helped young people against Cancer Foundation.

This foundation helps poor children with cancer and their families. The greatest challenge we had was to make wishes come true for children who have an incurable disease.

On December 17, the foundation organized an outlet for the children connected with the foundation and their families. People came from all over the country. There were about 250 youth and their families.

In a park in Conocoto they arranged a lunch and various activities such as dancing, tai chi and theater for the children. There was also a raffle for microwaves, refrigerators and clothing packages.

Condor Parkcondor gringa
Near Otavalo you can find a Condor park. This is a refugee for Condors that are weak and that need to recover in a safe environment. Joep, owner of the condorpark, takes care of them and makes sure that they recover so that they can be released into the wild again. This is not possible with all of them. To get sufficient resources to take care of the condors, Joep arranges flight shows with the condors. Of course, only the strong ones can join these shows. Ecole Travel Ecuador made it possible to add an "healthy" condor to support the flight shows, by paying a flight ticket. This condor is called Gringa.

Quito cultural capital of America in 2011
Quito, the capital of Ecuador, is thé cultural capital of America in 2011. In a short time, Quito has transformed itself into a cosmopolitan. You'll find restaurants with international menus (Mexican, Italian, Swiss, Japanese among others), walking through the Mariscal you'll see blond girls, a Thai boy, a hippie selling handicrafts and a Cuban preparing cocktails. In Quito cultures converge!

The 1.840 parks, the flora, the fauna and the unique surroundings make Quito an ideal place for sports and adventure in the nature. Intense parties of volley, soccer, basketball and other disciplines are mixed with dancing, hiking and aerobics in the parks. The adventure lies in the hikings into the misty mountains that surround the city and in the exploration of the rural paths by bike or walking.

With its 46 ecosystems, Ecuador is in the list of 17 countries with the highest biodiversity of the World and Quito is your entrance to discover all national treasures hidden throughout the country. The green areas in the capital occupy 3.200 hectares, which means that there is an average green space of 15 m² for each inhabitant.

In July and September, there are a lot of initiatives to protect the environment, waste management, climate change and actions will be taken to minimalize its impact. During three months, outdoor activities, adventure sports and the approach to nature, will be on the cultural agenda.
Quito is a city with traditions. Here they combine the cultural heritage of indigenous communities with those who arrived with the Spaniards. This, for example, is reflected in All Souls Day on 2 November.

While the churches are filled with parishioners who ask for the souls of those who are gone, the cemeteries are crowded with people who do a vigil besides the graves of their loved ones. They drink colada morada, take food with them and between prayers, flowers and songs they remind those who past away.
During the December parties, Quito is found in joy. The legends of “La casa 1028”, or ‘El Padre Almeida’ are told again, all in honor of the face of God. In this time, youngsters show their musical skills and school kids show different types of dances. Old and young work on floats to represent the city in its various facets. Last year, Quito had his 487 aniversary.

Around Christmas come the traditional passing of the Child, to welcome Jesus with music and flowers. The masses combine joy with solemnity. At these parties the typical food of Quito is highly appreciated. The pristine, soups, tortillas, canelazos and other delicacies are the perfect complement.

In 1551, the Franciscan priests Fray Jodoco Ricke and Fray Pedro Gocial dounded the School of Arts, which originates the Quito School. 460 years later, the work of Bernardo de Legarda, Manuel Chili (Caspicara), Miguel de Santiago and other artists adorn the churches, convents and monasteries in the city.
Quito is a convent city. The streets in the center and the different churches that are situated in the colonial part keep this legacy that you can find in San Francisco, Santo Domingo, La Compañia, San Agustín, La Basilica and many more.
People express their religion going to masses on Sundays. The peak of devotion is expressed every Good Friday. On the final day of the Holy Week, the people represent the suffering of Jesus before he was crucified. The procession starts at the church of San Francisco, passes the street Venezuela until La Basilica and returns in the street Garcia Moreno.
In this celebration, the faithful wait anxiously for the image of Jesus, who they worship with with flowers and songs.
