Our Team

CAEMBA is a project of Fundación Raíz Ecuador

Your donations help those affected by the earthquake in Ecuador.

We work with communities to support and improve opportunities for vulnerable groups, children and women. Our efforts focus on the construction of houses for the most vulnerable and of schools in areas marginalized or abandoned by the authorities, and the creation of entrepreneurship centers where women are trained and empowered to create small businesses so that they are able to support their families.

Bamboo Houses

Living in decent, safe homes gives families the support and security needed to thrive. This improves the quality of life as well as the physical and emotional health of those inhabiting such dwellings.

Community and Women's Entrepreneurship Centers

The goal of these centers is to train and empower women who are often leaders of their families so they can achieve financial independence. Via courses in tailoring, cosmetology, hairdressing and more, women acquire skills to start their own businesses so they can support their families and break the cycle of poverty.

Community centers

We firmly believe that education is the best tool to achieve the advancement of people and society. Children of low-income families must receive adequate education and training in order to develop fully and escape the cycle of poverty into which they are born.

OUR HISTORY

How CAEMBA Was Born

The earthquake of April 16 of 2016 on the Ecuadorian coast left thousands of peasant and urban-rural families homeless and forced to seek shelter from rain, nighttime cold  and insects.

We began to help immediately. We thought that the best thing we could do was to assist by building inexpensive housing very quickly. 

All of CAEMBA's work is done thanks to private donations.

Our work has been possible thanks to the donations of many individuals and organizations. 100% of these donations are used for construction and development of housing for the most vulnerable and destitute.

Our field work takes place locally and with families and people that most urgently require our help. Working with people from communities benefited  ensures the success of our mission.
