Fundación Azulado is an Ecuadorian not-for-profit organization whose objective is to prevent child maltreatment and sexual abuse through educational programs directed to parents, teachers, and children. The impact of working with these three groups is powerful and increases the possibility of real change in family and school environments. When teachers, parents, and caregivers change their mentality, the impact over time is enormous. We also provide psychological treatment to children and families who have experienced situations of abuse, thus working on the underlying problem of child abuse in Ecuador.
Since 2011, the AZULADO Foundation has assisted more than 20,000 children and has trained more than 650 teachers from low income schools, through school-based prevention programs. The programs take place during several sessions and have been carried out in the cities of Quito and nearby valleys as well as in Otavalo, Guayllabamba, Manta, Guayaquil, Machachi and now in the area affected by the earthquake of April 2016. Additionally, we have worked with more than 500 parents in parenting programs and we have held talks with more than 6,000 parents.
What we do:
Our mission in FUNDACION AZULADO is to create a society that protects children and treats them with respects and tenderness so they can become confident and integral adults.
Where we work:
We work in elementary and secondary, private and public schools, companies, public institutions, and the community in general, in the development of educational and awareness programs for all types of child abuse and sexual abuse.
