On 11th October 2007, The Scholar Ship, a multi-country study abroad program based on a cruise ship arrived in Ecuador. As part of our academic program in the country, we set to discover and understand how children understand their concept of National Identity while gaining perspective of their lives, the challenges they face and how NPOs, NGOs and Government are helping shape the single most important natural resource of the nation: their Children.
Our journey took us to Guayaquil and Quito two very different cities that have each a different attributes that have created social tension in the country.
During the video we visit local schools, vaccination drives sponsored by UNICEF, and we are guests on location of PLAN & NACE, organizations that are empowering children reporters to produce, develop and deliver documentaries that are showcased through ECUAVISA, one of the major national TV/Media outlets.

It is our aim in this entry to open a window in Latin America and further understand our common challenges and our common humanity.
