The Mashi Foundation is a UK registered charity that works with children living in poverty in Ecuador.

We work in partnership with local people to enable children to access health care and education. Mashi helps children who would normally not have the opportunity to receive the health care they need. We support them and their families to receive basic treatment they cannot afford to pay for themselves. This includes medication, vaccinations, tests and examinations and help with ongoing needs such as vitamins, supplements, therapeutic input and access to wider services. Mashi works with parents to ensure the best outcome possible for the children. We focus on the physical, emotional, psychological and social well-being of children and young people.

Mashi is also able to assist children to access educational provision. Through a sponsor parent programme, we are able to send a number of children to school. These are children who are living in poor economic situations and would otherwise be working. Deprivation and poverty are barriers to them accessing education but with the support of sponsors, they are able to attend school, offering them the chance to learn and achieve. This is beneficial for the children and their families and will give them a chance in the future to change their lifestyle and open up a world of opportunities.

Mashi also works in a rural area of Ecuador and offers a nursery provision to the families living in this area. The children of these families would otherwise be forced to work in the fields with their parents. This provision allows them to be in a safe environment, having 3 meals a day, with opportunities to play and learn in a secure and positive environment. Working closely with people of the community allows us to best meet their needs. In consultation, we are able to involve them in decision- making and the day to day running of the nursery.

Mashi is completely reliant upon donations and sponsors and all those that are involved with Mashi give their time voluntarily.
