Project Launch: 4/3/17

The Ecuadorian Amazon is one of Ecuador's most ecologically diverse areas although the region also suffers from high rates of poverty. Few opportunities for social mobility are available. The Arajuno Road Project has developed a student-centered curriculum to better provide the area's residents with courses to become competent and literate polyglots (Spanish, Shuar, and English). These multilingual skills will prove invaluable as adolescents and adults seek the chance to work in business, the tourism sector, and in other niches in and out of the region. This project seeks to expand the coverage of this curriculum within and outside of the formal classroom setting, offering the chance for participants to receive educational programming at school, in a community computer lab, and through the community centers.
