Food in Ecuador

Working Boys Center

Donate to help transform lives


With few chances to increase their income, the urban poor in Quito, Ecuador, struggle to provide their children with adequate food, and increasing gang activity has made matters worse.

As hunger and other hardships increase, gangs try to recruit poor boys and girls to their way of life as a way to escape poverty. With your support, a dedicated Catholic ministry team can support impoverished families at their homes and at A Family of Families Center, distributing nutritious food and showing the loving face of a compassionate God.

Our Global Work

In everything we do, we remain focused on the Lord, serving with humility, fervor and love, and advancing Catholic evangelization. We work in partnership with church-based ministries and other faith-based organizations, creating and ideal synergy for the greatest impact.

In that rare event that more funds are received than are required for a specific project, the additional funds will be used to meet the most urgent needs.
