In 2002, Fundacion Amor y Esperanza (A&E) , CVI’s Ecuador partner, began a nursery in Carmen Bajo’s community. This nursery was started in a local CMA church of the community. In September 2003, A&E began a formal private Christian school beginning with kindergarten. This school received formal recognition from the Ecuadorian Ministry of Education in January 2004 and the school has added a grade per year since that time.  The school has just been recognized as 1 of 7 ACSI ( schools in Ecuador thanks to its partner school in Ecuador - The Alliance Academy.

With the $75 per month, each student receives:
