The Gift of Soccer Foundation is proud to again have partnered with Hope Christian School to support their Outreach program to Ecuador this May. Last year The Gift of Soccer Foundation worked with Rio Rapids Soccer Club to collect, clean, organize, and package over 500lbs of gear to be taken to the remote jungles of Ecuador.
Hope Christian has been supporting outreach Missions to Ecuador for many years. Chaperones along with students travel to the jungles of Ecuador and provide much needed support and materials to change the lives of many families. Recently the efforts have been focused on partnering with an Ecuadorian Non-Profit Group, Feecuador Elohim. One place that this wonderful organization supports is a feeding center. This center supports around 15 communities from a centralized location providing much needed nutritional support and medical and dental services to the area.
