Protection Scholarship Program


Protection Scholarship Program

This program provides school scholarships to all students who are orphaned by father and / or mother. The Municipality of Guayaquil, implemented this program through the Directorate of Social Action and Education and with the pro bono collaboration of Fundación Ecuador. It was established to defend and fulfill the right of children to be educated and protected. 

On Friday, July 20, 2012, at the Rodolfo Baquerizo Moreno Plaza, the first installment of 130 grants were distributed under this program.

The grant consists of:

  • School supplies.
  • Bus passes on public Metrovia transportation.
  • $200 to contribute to the student’s tuition and board in local low-income private schools.


A total of 674 students have benefited as of late June 2016. 22% of these students have repeatedly received this benefit since the program began.
