A few folks have begun to revitalize the Friends of Ecuador group beginning with a database-driven website. The site will offer many services including:
- Link donations to ongoing RPCV projects in Ecuador
- Provide a connection to US markets for Ecuadorian fair trade products
- Strengthen ties between Ecuadorian communities in the US and US citizens who have lived and worked in Ecuador
- Connect technically proficient short term volunteers to ongoing RPCV projects in Ecuador
Create a forum for RPCVs to reconnect with each other
- Develop an historical archive of the RPCV experience in Ecuador
- Advance the Peace Corps' third goal, "To strengthen Americans' understanding of the world and its peoples - to bring the world back home."
Look for the site's launch later this year!
