Working Boys Center Partnership, Quito, Ecuador St. Gabriel’s supports the Working Boys Center primarily through financial assistance and donations of needed educational tools and materials. The WBC is operated by Fr. John Hallagan, S.J. under the guidance of the Jesuits and the Sisters of Charity in Quito. The WBC takes in children up to 17 years old, provides a home and teaches the ten moral values necessary in a Christian life. The kids learn a trade or profession and go on to a successful life, many eventually returning to become mentors to the program which saved them.
