“Educating our children with love and values is to make a better world” – Vicente Leon Foundation.
Start a social and educational campaign was a job of two in 2001 when Segundo Espin and his wife Luz Elena Ordoñez through their school, “Vicente Leon,” ventured to live philanthropy through the creation of a foundation of the same name.
The aim of the foundation: serve children and youth, especially those studying in public institutions in the city of Guayaquil and Santa Elena Province. After 10 years of hard work, his son Arturo Espin decided to join their work with an unconditional support.
“Annually, the Foundation opened 4 courses of 4 months duration each in ten elementary schools and 15 highschool in Guayaquil and in 6 elementary schools in Santa Elena,” said Arturo.
For this purspose, the Foundation has highly qualified teachers both domestic and foreign. In addition, Vicente Leon Foundation donates didactic resources such as English and Math books, dictionaries, pamphlets, songbooks and CD’s) to schools with whom they previously coordinate this type of help.
“All the books are of my authorship with the collaboration of other teachers of the Foundation (…) these books are sold to the Municipality of Guayaquil, and in return, they donate the material to which the council manages institutions.”
Thus, the Foundation not only meets their philanthropic work, but also benefits directly, as all the gains from the sale of educational materials, go to the funds of the same Foundation.
This year, like other years, Vicente Leon Foundation prepares its vacation courses that offer English, mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer and e-business on web classes; with pieces of 1 month and ongoing certification.
“For us it is important to guarantee our students that they will attend good courses and the end the certainty that they will get a diploma endorsed by the Ministry of Social Welfare.”
