“Alas de Colibri” is a recognized organization located in the north of Quito that wants to abolish child work and begging in the streets of Ecuador. We work in the promotion and defense of human rights and nature with the help of our specialized team that tries to create a fair, free and solidary society.
The project “Casa de la Protección” is a home for up to 14 girls aged between 10 and 17 years that were treated badly by their families or that suffered sexual abuse. The girls live in rooms of four with their own bathroom and there’s one extra room in case a teenage mother lives with us. We mostly share our daily life in the living room, kitchen or our garden where we realize the different activities.
Our goal is to provide psychological and educational help for the girls to help them find back into their lives or to help them create an idea of their future perspectives.
