Fundación Chankuap was established in 1996 by the Salesian Mission of Wasakentsa, and is located in Achuar. The Foundation was formed as a response to the need to create sustainability to the work of the Mission as well as to expand and structure activities with a special focus on community development. To achieve its objectives, the Foundation has established a strategy to achieve productive technological development as well as to strengthen social, socio-organizational and institutional efforts and external relations. These activities are essential to minority groups living in the jungle and the most deficient rural and urban sectors.
Since 2007, the relationship between Falconi Puig Abogados and the Foundation has been building up and we have had the opportunity to offer our Pro Bono sponsorship not only on Intellectual Property issues, but also to contribute to other parts of the laudable work carried out by the Foundation. We have also contributed advising on matters related to the requirements and obligations of organizations and corporations and participated in advising on issues related to civil and commercial contracts.
The Procare Foundation was established in 1997 thanks to the voluntary contribution of a group of people committed to society who had decided to work with children in the formation of Christian virtues in marginal areas of the city of Guayaquil. Over the years, and responding to the needs of the community, Fundación Procare designs new programs that are not based solely on the spiritual aspects but encompass the complete training of the individual with the aim to cultivate universal human values. In addition to comprehensive training, through the Procare Action program, children receive monthly check-up, including breakfast and vitamins as well as a complete deworming process.
Since 2002 Falconi Puig Abogados has provided sponsorship to the Foundation on issues related to Intellectual Property, including trademark registrations, renewals and watching services of its distinctive signs in Ecuador and other countries of the Andean Community of Nations.
