Quito Dream Center Scholarships
Extreme Response grew out of a small children’s club in the garbage dump in Quito, Ecuador. In June 1997, ER’s founders began working with the 300-plus people who lived and worked among the trash. Back then, the children and babies were next to their moms, picking through the trash. Thanks largely to the efforts of ER, children of the dump workers now attend school and the Quito Dream Center afterschool program.
The Quito Dream Center provides a safe and nurturing environment for these vulnerable kids. We currently have 45 children enrolled and succeeding in their schoolwork.
Every Monday through Thursday, the kids come to the center before or after school (depending on their school schedules) and receive a nutritious meal, homework help, specialized tutoring and basic life skills training. Scholarship money helps cover the cost of operating the Dream Center, food, reading materials and school supplies.
