Classic Coup supports global education. With proceeds from our shirts we send books to Quito, Ecuador. There Kaleo Kids, a non-profit organization providing shelter, education and assistance to children, distributes them.
In the Amazonian region and the Sierra about 24% of the population suffer from malnutrition. Ecuador is below the Latin American level in primary education registration with less than half the children who attend school completing basic education. While 8 Indigenous out of 10 are registered for basic education, only 2 of them complete it.
Below are children in a Quito orphanage that the founders of Kaleo Kids, Sherry and Darin Coyle, fell in love with on their visit to Ecuador in 2009 (see text below).
Below are some of the elementary/middle school favorites recently sent to Ecuador.
