The situation in Ecuador
Ecuador has some very poor areas, and many children do not have access to basic healthcare. Violence is a major problem, and homicide is one of the main causes of death for young people. This can partly be explained by the fact that women and young people with atypical backgrounds have little place in society. It is difficult for minorities to integrate.
