The Galo Plaza Lasso Foundation was born in 1995, in the beautiful Andean countryside of Zuleta, and its principal goal is to revive the thinking of ex-President of Ecuador Galo Plaza Lasso, one of the foremost representatives of liberalism in this country.

Since then the Foundation has worked together with the community of Zuleta.  Our development projects Condor Huasi, Zuleta Embroidery and the library of Zuleta are names which are now part of daily life here and are making a significant difference in the local community.

Education, conservation and development define our challenge.  We invite you to join us and become part of the ambitious but achievable dreams of the Galo Plaza Lasso Foundation.
