Associate Project Director for Amigos de las Americas in Cuenca
Hello! My name is Cat Gannascoli and I work for a non-profit called Amigos de las Americas. We are a youth empowerment community development organization working in communities in the Cañar-Azuay region facilitate community-driven projects, specifically aimed at engaging youth. This summer we will have 45 high school volunteers from the US and about 5 Ecuadorian high school students working in communities for 7 weeks. Partnership with local agencies is also an important aspect of the organization and we have built strong relationships with Plan Internacional, Grupo Social FEPP, The Red Cross and a group of incredible law students at the university. Currently, I am looking for housing for myself and seven others, who comprise the staff team in charge of the well-being and project implementation of the volunteers. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
