The Casa del Sol – Refugio de los Sueños belongs to the Fundación Niñez y Vida (Foundation Childhood and Life), an Ecuadorian NGO. It offers integral support during childhood and adolescence for children and adolescents whose rights are being violated.
We work in three main areas:
Education: With our educational work we want to respect natural development processes. Loving care and acceptance are the bases of our work.
We offer scholarships for school and university and keep track of the children’s school situation and progress, supporting them where necessary. Our day center has several artisanal workshops where the kids can try out and explore different handicrafts. Teamwork and mutual respect as well as compliance with certain rules are part of everyday life.
Health: Medical campaigns, lab exams, free treatments and health check-ups as well as help in emergencies, dental care, and therapies are part of the health services we offer.
Social Work: Follow up on family situations, family interviews, prevention work for a good treatment of children and adolescents and their families.
