Dylan lives in the coastal community of West Suburb, home to approximately 200 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement. The spoken language is Spanish.

The regional diet consists of beans, bananas, chicken, fish, beef, plantains, rice and potatoes. Common health problems in this area include parasites, anemia, malaria, yellow fever and viral diseases. Most adults in West Suburb work in factories or as street vendors and earn the equivalent of $340 per month. This community needs awareness on the importance of education.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Nueva Vida Student Center to provide Dylan with Bible teaching, psychological checkups, nutritious food, hygiene education, recreational activities, birthday celebrations, school uniforms and shoes, handicraft training and academic support. The center staff will also provide meetings and evangelism for the parents or guardians of Dylan.
Straddling the equator, Ecuador has two Andes mountain ranges that split it into three zones: the western coastal lowlands, the central Andean highlands and the eastern jungles of the Amazon basin. The lowlands and islands are hot and humid and the highlands are temperate.

The Ecuadorian population is about 25 percent Amerindian and 65 percent mestizo (Amerindian and Caucasian). The remainder is of Spanish or African descent. Most people live in urban settings. Spanish is the official language but many Indians speak Quechua, the language of the Incas, and practice traditional religions. Ninety-five percent of Ecuadorians are Catholic. Compassion works throughout central and western Ecuador.

Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro invaded Ecuador, home of the Inca Empire, in 1532 and controlled it within two years. In 1822, Ecuador gained freedom as part of a federation known as Gran Colombia. In 1830, it gained independence as Ecuador.

In recent decades, Ecuador's economy has relied heavily on oil export revenue, so fluctuations in world market prices have a significant economic impact. A drop in world oil prices combined with natural disasters in the late 1990s to drive Ecuador's economy into poverty. In 2000, Congress enacted reforms and adopted the U.S. dollar as legal tender, which helped stabilize the economy. In recent years, however, economic reforms have been reversed, making Ecuador again vulnerable to oil price swings and financial crises. And though Ecuador marked 25 years of civilian governance in 2004, it has been troubled by political instability, including the ouster of the last three democratically elected presidents. Rafael Correa is the current president.
