Build a learning centre


The schools in neighbourhoods where Compassion serves are under-resourced and struggle to provide children the education they need to escape poverty. You can build a new learning centre at a Compassion centre where children can study, learn computer skills and have access to a library.

Fifty years ago, not one person in Miraflores-Cochapamba knew how to read or write. This rural village in the highlands of Ecuador has few services and little contact with the outside world. With little education, it was impossible for families to escape their grinding poverty.

But when Compassion began partnering with the local church here 15 years ago, things started to change. Now a learning centre has been built for the children of this forgotten village. Children can go to the centre to learn computers, use the library, get help with homework and play games. Through the education they’re getting at the centre, they are learning how they can escape poverty.
