Thanks to the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland, we also had a long lasting project with the Cofan indigenous community in Ecuador, which has now been taken over by the community itself. The Cofan lost 90% of their land as a result of oil extraction and other developments. With our help the Cofan built a Youth Association which aims to build young people's skills, knowledge and self esteem to help them become advocates for human rights in their communities.
