Chicken Soup for the Soul

ya casi acabamos de picarWhen the sun goes down on Quito many people are leaving their jobs and daily occupations to go home, share their time with loved ones and more than likely, sleep with their bellies full unbothered by the worries of when their next meal will be.  But, as the majority lay in their beds in a deep slumber, the work day of Quito’s poorest begins.

I’m sure some of you may have heard about the book series, Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield, if not, they are filled with inspirational and motivational true stories or essays for all phases and moments of your life.  Instead, the story I’m about to share truly does involve a real and hearty chicken soup that was meant for the souls of those who are less fortunate.

Volunteers Give Love, Time And Resources

1Volunteers more important contribution in our projects is their PRESENCE.

They share daily life of children, women, elders, animals and learn to see the world from another perspective.

For some participants this is an exciting experience, others need more time to understand the importance of their contribution.  Just by holding a child’s hand or fixing a path you will be truly making a difference in someone’s people’s life and believe it or not in yours too.
