厄瓜多尔筑梦基金会 （Fundación Construyamos Un Sueño）
在这次义工行动中，我们与厄瓜多尔筑梦基金会 （Fundación Construyamos Un Sueño）达成了战略伙伴关系，从今年开始，由安迪读书基金负责为其招募全球志愿者。
The Andy Reading Fund North America branch set foot on a journey to Ecuador in the spring of 2019. In this volunteer operation, we entered into a strategic partnership with Fundación Construyamos Un Sueño. Since this year, the Andy Reading Fund has been assisting in recruiting global volunteers.
The Foundation is one of the most influential charitable organizations in Ecuador. It has a Child Development Center, a professional service team for the disabled, and a public welfare home. It serves more than 3,000 people a year and has won local government awards.
筑梦基金会的创始人Maria Gabriela Mena Bustamante的经历也颇为传奇，14年前还是一个高中生的她赢得了选美比赛的冠军，一直对慈善事业有兴趣的她借着这个机会成立了筑梦基金会，在进入了厄瓜多尔大学最负盛名的社会工程系后，她将基金会作为她的追求。一步步走来，她已经是当地最有影响力的慈善名人。
The experience of Maria Gabriela Mena Bustamante, the founder of the Dream Foundation, is also quite legendary. She was a high school student 14 years ago. She won the beauty contest and she has been interested in charity to establish a dream. The Foundation, after entering the most prestigious social engineering department at the University of Ecuador, took the Foundation as her quest. Step by step, she is already the most influential charity celebrity in the area.
The Andy Reading Fund has established a scholarship for local students in Ecuador to fund students to attend school. During this volunteer trip, members of the Andy Reading Fund participated in the daily work of the Ecuador Dream Foundation. The members follow a professional team of teachers to experience their daily lives in the poorest mountainous areas of Ecuador.
The founder Maria also invited us to bring back our own charity project plan in the second year and return to Ecuador to work with the Dream Foundation to create a better future for the local elderly and children!
