Disney's Friends for Change Ecuador

This year, the Riverstreet gang had the opportunity to travel to Ecuador and ride a canoe up the Amazon to film a remarkable gathering in a remote rainforest village. On behalf of Disney's Friends for Change and with the help of international nonprofit Free the Children, we documented the building of a school as a collaborative effort between the people of the village and 30 Disney volunteers who came from all over the world to help. We learned so much about the power of a community working together for the good of everyone – what the Quechuan people call "minga."
