Project Ecuador - Salvidas Ecuador

Project Ecuador is an international lifesaving venture for the Long Beach Lifeguard Association. Our purpose is to train citizens in Ecuador to become lifeguards, then to help guide groups to become self sustained professional ocean lifeguard services and ultimately join the International Life Saving Federation. On the job training is conducted each year during "Carnival", the 4 day national holiday celebrating the coming of Lent. Additional support in the form of lifeguard volunteers and rescue equipment is needed to continue the ongoing success of Project Ecuador as we expand from Guayas to Santa Elena northward.
