Ecuador Cares needs volunteers for NOVA raffle

Ecuador Cares is looking for volunteers to help sell tickets for the annual Christmas-time raffle of Centro Educativo NOVA, a unique school that focuses on an integrated approach to education that mixes traditional and disabled students.

Volunteers will staff tables at popular Cuenca restaurants for short periods of selling raffle tickets. Participating restaurants include Fabianos, San Sebas Café, Sunrise Café, and Tutto Matto Pizzeria.
This year’s raffle offsets NOVA’s 2017 budget shortfall from reduced government funding. Our goal is $3000. The raffle ends on December 15, with prizes drawn on December 16.

NOVA has an enrollment of approximately 105 children, ranging in age from 7-13, and in some cases up to 18 for the extremely disabled. Of the total enrollment, approximately 35 of the children have some sort of disability, including autism.
