Support for organisations in Ecuador



This space is intended to shine the spotlight on the initiatives of Ecuadorian organisations that strive every day in the field to improve the daily lives of this country's inhabitants.

Here you will find the NGOs mediated by Une Option de Plus which develop, at their own level, actions in the fields of health, education and raising social and economic awareness.

You too can become an actor or partner in the initiatives by providing human or financial support. Find out how by clicking here.



Une Option de Plus offers the NGOs in its network a level of expertise that helps them create a sustainable structure, by:

-  creating a synergy between them so they can exchange their respective experiences and optimise their know-how;

- organizing workshops, events, meetings and other forums where NGOs can exchange best practice, pool their experience, improve their skills through training, and in this way build a true network of local grass-roots initiatives;

-  conducting audits on their operation, financing, needs, etc.;

-  giving advice on project setup, specific funding research and communication;

-  making the public aware of their involvement;

-  improving their visibility at international scale.



The NGOs we support fulfil the criteria and respect the commitments that allow them to benefit from the Une Option de Plus label.

This label is the official seal of the pledge and passion the mediated NGOs bring to their work, their performance and their management of the support they receive.

It is awarded by a commission composed of a team of French members and local auditors specialised in NGO location and study, following a complete audit.




Une Option de Plus has developed its activities in France and offers training programs for the volunteers of the organizations as well as for all interested volunteers of other organizations. We also undertake awareness activities on international solidarity in schools. Furthermore, we participate in various events of the associative life all year long.
