Africa Day

Donation Made to Afro-Ecuadorian Cultural Center on Africa Day

Quito, Ecuador - A UPF-Ecuador delegation visited the office of ”Fundación de Desarrollo Social y Cultural Afroecuatoriana Azucar” on May 28 in order to deliver a contribution to the fund to construct an Afro-Ecuadorian Cultural Center.

The Director described the way of life of Afro-Ecuadorians, the plan for the Culture Center, and the activities of their organization. The descendants of black African slaves brought by the Spanish during their conquest of Ecuador, Afro-Ecuadorians constitute an estimated 5 percent of the population, concentrated in the northwest coastal region and urban areas. They experience regional inequalities, racial discrimination, and poverty. They have made notable contributions to national life through music and football.

In turn, the visitors described UPF's character education curriculum for children.
