About

Manna Project International’s mission is to foster communities of young adults and encourage them to use their passions and education in service to communities in need. MPI’s Ecuador team recruits college students and graduates to live and work together as catalysts of sustainable, community-driven development. In the Chillos valley outside Quito, Ecuador, we apply a four-step approach to asset-based community development:

Identify the existing assets, resources and capacities in a community. Drawing from methodologies developed by the World Bank and Northwestern University, we conduct surveys and community dialogues to familiarize ourselves with the institutions, networks and individuals in one or two small, contiguous neighborhoods. Rather than focusing on that community's needs, the surveys identify the existing assets and resources that are the foundations of community-driven development.
