In February, committee members Sandra and Sietske visited the day care. They were pleased to see a continued sense of commitment and dedication from the local team in Ecuador. It was noted that the children are doing well at the day care despite the issues that they face within their homes. This was satisfying to see as it confirms that Villa Ticca provides a safe place for them. 

At present the matters of greatest priority are;
* A new volunteer policy involving a revision of the current expectations of volunteers and requirements of a longer staying period
* Improving nutrition with particular focus on breakfast meals
* Actively fundraising within Ecuador by opening a bank account in the name of the foundation
* Expanding the support provided to the mothers through workshops  

We are always trying to improve the care we provide with the best interests of the children in mind.
