Investment in early childhood education is a proven, cost-effective way to promote advancements in developing nations. Children who participate in early childhood education programs are more likely to start primary school on time, continue their education through high school, and have a reduced probability of living in poverty and contracting HIV.
  
READ ME: I worked with another volunteer (Albert B. Kopf) on an 8-year old exotic tree species trials project centered in Cuenca, Ecuador and sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution in cooperation with the Peace Corps.  We, researched seed stock, procured seed from around the world, managed the nursery growth of potted tree seedlings, planted new plots, and measured up to 8-year old tree plots in a project to research alternative tree species that could be used to help commercially reforest the very deforested Andes Mountains of the southern sierra and serve as alternative tree species to the two principal commercial tree species grown in the tropical world (i.e.,''pinus radiata'' and ''eucalyptus globulus'').  We supervised up to 15 man crews in this reforestation project in southern sierra of Andes Mountains in Ecuador.  We continued the R&D of this 8-year ongoing exotic and native tree species experimental plots in various climates through mountains and into foothills of the Amazon Basin in the Provinces of Azuay, Cañar, and Morona Santiago. We published 2 non-refereed final reports to the cooperating and interactive agencies (i.e. USAID, FAO, CARE, Host-country development agencies). We also worked to access funds through grants for community projects such as nurseries, potable water, and bridge construction in the pueblos surrounding the metropolitan Cuenca area.

Programs like this one particularly benefit orphans and vulnerable children by providing a safe haven for those who lack a stable home life and face the persistent burden of discrimination. There are an estimated 700,000 to one million orphans and vulnerable children in Mozambique, a number that is increasing due to the prevalence of HIV.

Currently in its second year, a preschool located in a city in Mozambique provides a safe and nurturing environment for young children. While the school boasts a dedicated, local staff and a growing number of students, it currently lacks classroom facilities. The school has already purchased land and has enlisted community members to donate their time to aid in the school construction. As this project is managed entirely by the members of the community, there are no overhead costs, which means that 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly towards school construction, enabling the community to improve the lives of hundreds of children in the years to come.

Investment in early childhood education is a proven, cost-effective way to promote advancements in developing nations. Children who participate in early childhood education programs are more likely to start primary school on time, continue their education through high school, and have a reduced probability of living in poverty and contracting HIV.

Programs like this one particularly benefit orphans and vulnerable children by providing a safe haven for those who lack a stable home life and face the persistent burden of discrimination. There are an estimated 700,000 to one million orphans and vulnerable children in Mozambique, a number that is increasing due to the prevalence of HIV.

Currently in its second year, a preschool located in a city in Mozambique provides a safe and nurturing environment for young children. While the school boasts a dedicated, local staff and a growing number of students, it currently lacks classroom facilities. The school has already purchased land and has enlisted community members to donate their time to aid in the school construction. As this project is managed entirely by the members of the community, there are no overhead costs, which means that 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly towards school construction, enabling the community to improve the lives of hundreds of children in the years to come.
