The Mashi Foundation

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. We support them and their families to receive basic treatment they cannot afford to pay for themselves. 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.
Mashi has started working 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.
