We are a collection of American and Ecuadorean families bound together through the life of David Byrd-Felker. The Fund expresses our belief that the many talented, but poor, young people in places like Ecuador flourish as human beings and leaders when offered serious, sustained support. They show us what a better, more just world would be like.
