Why We Help Children in Ecuador

21.4% of under-five children in Ecuador experience stunting, which is when a child is too short for his or her age and is the result of chronic or recurrent malnutrition.

17% of children in Ecuador of the official lower secondary school age range do not attend lower secondary education at any time during the academic year.

14 out of 1,000 live births will die between birth and 5 years of age, which reflects the limited access some communities have to basic health interventions.
