Take a look at our compilation of videos since 2007. They report about the programs Avanzar runs in the course of every year.
Our videos are in Spanish with English subtitles.
In our new video, we explain how we created a solidarity and savings institution named CAJA SOLIDARIA Avanzamos Juntas together with a number of women with a business idea and a solid entrepreneurial spirit in order to help them get credits to advance their businesses they would otherwise not receive from regular banks. And the impact this kind of organization has on the women's lives.
For this year's fundraiser, a new video was created, showcasing not only women who were able to create a business of their own thanks to know-how they accumulated in courses offered by Fundaciòn Avanzar. It also explains which steps we at the Fundaciòn took in order to make all these different courses available on various social networks, adapting to the new circumstances caused by Covid-19.
On the occasion of our annual fundraiser, we produced this video showing testimonials from women who - through the education offered by Fundación Avanzar - have been able to improve life for themselves and their families. In addition, we highlight two women entrepreneurs who created their respective companies after completing various courses offered by Fundación Avanzar and succeeded in creating jobs for other women, thus furthering the economic welfare of entire communities.
The situation around the coronavirus in Ecuador is still dramatic. Not only is Ecuador one of the most affected countries in Latin America and has suffered in a brutal way with many victims from the pandemic, but also the lockdown deeply affects an economy that was already very weak before SARS Cov-2 came into our lives. Therefore, the support of ONG’s like Avanzar is currently more important than ever before.
For 20 years now, FUNDACION AVANZAR has been supporting underprivileged women living in precarious conditions in Ecuador. In this video you can see how it all began and where the journey has led until today.
The figures speak for themselves: We have enabled 1,000 women through education to lead a self-determined and dignified life in financial independence. At the Ludoteca in the Hospital Vicente Corral Moscoso, 30,000 children have been treated with therapies and have had a smile put on their faces. 30 volunteers from different countries work on site. 5 NGOs have received financial support. Over the past 20 years, FUNDACION AVANZAR has grown from a small idea to an organization now indispensable in Cuenca and employs 7 people in their administration.
