Ecuador Uni 2 CA 2017
Team Member: Ashlin Rowlinson
Event Name: ME to WE CA - Ecuador 2017
I will be going to Ecuador with the organization ME TO WE in May of 2017. While there, I will be working with the women of rural Ecuador and empowering them with leadership skills to earn an income. One thing ME TO WE does really well is that they give a hand up, not a hand out. In other words, they help to make people of third-world countries self-sufficient so they don't need to be dependent on someone else for their own well-being. I believe this trip will be a life-changing experience, but unfortunately I cannot do it on my own. I'm currently in university pursuing my dreams of becoming an international teacher, therefore I'm asking for financial assistance from the people around me to help send me on this educational experience. I appreciate you taking the time to read and share my story. Thank you so much for donating/passing on this post!
