Reviving the local economy

Active in Ecuador since 2009, Acting for Life ha increased its commitment to the regions most affected by the natural catastrophe that hit the country on April 16, 2016.

In the days that followed the 7.8 magnitude earthquake, priorities for dealing with the urgent problems facing the inhabitants and local associations shifted. After the initial emergency work and reconstruction of basic infrastructure, Acting for Life focused all its resources on reviving the rural economy in the north of the country. For several weeks, thanks to the support of Air France and the Agence Française de Développement, Acting for Life and its local partners, CEPESIU and CEFODI, have been helping small cacao producers, fishermen and tourist services. The focus is on jobs and improving local incomes for the 1,500 or so people living in Muisne (Esmeraldas Province) and Pedernales, Jama and San Vicente (Manabí Province), the districts that were hardest hit.
