Help Us Fight Poverty in South America

Colombia

Colombia ranks as one of the happiest countries in the world, but 37% of the population there lives below the poverty line. CI's presence, with 10 community centers in the country, is working to rewrite a story that is too often shaped by poverty.

Ecuador

Thanks to its global position, Ecuador feels like four different worlds, spanning rainforests to mountains, and its population is descended from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Unfortunately, Ecuador struggles with poverty, with almost a quarter of its population living below the poverty line.
