Kenan Scholars in Ecuador

This summer, fourteen Kenan Scholars traveled to Ecuador for their annual service-abroad trip. In Quito, students partnered with UBECI, a local NGO committed to providing education for at-risk children. Students helped organize workshops with a focus on gender equality, spending a week building connections with children in the community.

On Isabela Island in the Galápagos, Kenan Scholars transitioned to a more environmental focus. Working with the group “Manos Reciclando,”—a group of women using art to demonstrate methods of sustainability—students learned the importance of recycling on an island with a delicate ecologic balance. Through beach cleanups, craft classes, and school visits, students contributed to the ongoing conservation efforts on the island..  ???
