ViaNiños is a nonprofit organisation working to support vulnerable children, young people and their families in Ecuador. Our aim is to enable Ecuadorian street children to create a better future for themselves and their families. We work in partnership with grassroots Ecuadorian NGOs, that offer support and education programmes for working children. Our role is to offer our partners financial support and strategic advice.
ViaNiños was founded in Munich in 2003 by three former CENIT volunteers who met whilst volunteering in Quito. To this day the organisation is run primarily by volunteers. A sister charity was set up in the UK in October 2008 and another in Switzerland in May 2009. ViaNiños needs your support to enable street children in Ecuador to build a brighter future.
A big thank you to the whole IPC Team for their generous donations! Our kids in Ecuador definitely need our support, and now in the pandemic more than ever. We see high drop out rates in Ecudorian schools and are trying by all means to motivate children to keep learning. But as many families are struggling to feed themselves for the day, schooling is not of such a high importance to them right now.
