Founder and Ecuador Director

Cameron Graham Vivanco is the Co-Founder of Education Equals Hope (E=H). Originally from NC, she has been in full time lay ministry for 23 years focusing on the voids that come with poverty, especially in the areas of education and leadership development. E=H started in Quito, Ecuador, where Cameron and her husband and three children serve as SAMS missionaries and has grown from helping one 15 year old girl finish third grade to serve over 2,000 students in five countries (Ecuador, Costa Rica, Haiti, Rwanda and Kenya).  She also runs Hope on the Ground, a short-term teams program which supports the E=H students and their families. She started ministry in 1995 as the youth coordinator at the Episcopal Church of the Advent, in Spartanburg, SC and has been full time on the mission field for 18 years. She is a graduate of The University of the South, Sewanee, TN and holds a certificate in youth ministry from the Institute for Professional Youth Ministry.  Cameron’s passion for her work comes from a desire to live out her faith so that students know that Jesus makes life better and makes us better at life.
