Our Mission is to encourage literacy, creativity and a love of the arts by providing a free after school program for children and theatrical entertainment for the greater Baños de Agua Santa community.
We do this by drawing on the creativity and talents of volunteers from all over the world. The Foundation’s emphasis is on sharing the love of books and the arts with the children and adults of Baños.
Fundacion Arte del Mundo is a not-for-profit foundation registered with the Ecuadorian Ministry of Culture and Education.
We are also incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in the state of Illinois, USA. Volunteers, donors and fund-raisers provide all of our income. We receive no sponsorship from political parties, for-profit corporations or religious organisations.We don’t use the services of middle-men or agents so there are no finders-fees or admin charges.
Our volunteers and donors can rest assured that all of the money we receive will go directly to providing services to the community.
