Laura & Fabienne - New Horizons’ corner stones

Mrs. Laura Cordova, born in the Manabí province, is the manager of New Horizons Volunteer Program. She is graduated in Social Communications, specialized in public relations. As a college student she worked together with a circle of friends helping the unfortunate neighborhoods of Quito. Her passion has always been social work. She also worked for five years as a Spanish teacher in different schools. This was the point where she started connecting with foreigners, and she became the channel between the volunteers and the institutions.

Fabienne Tieche, a Physiotherapist born in Grenche in Swizterland, has also been greatly interested in social work and when she met Laura the idea of a greater project saw the light of day. They understood that working together they could do so much more.

So, Fabienne and Laura started to prepare a project for channeling the help of volunteers. And together, on January 1, 1997, they created New Horizons volunteer Program. Later, in May 2001, the foundation "Redes Solidarias" was created, with the purpose of working together with New Horizons.
