Viviana was born in Quito Ecuador and her heart’s desire was going back to her country and help the people she left behind when she decided to begin a new adventure in USA. With a bag and many dreams, she asked God to use her to bring hope and comfort to the poor and needy. God opened the doors for her and with the support of her husband, together they started Beautiful Exchange in 2010. Soon after the formation, several churches and organizations, international and local, joined forces to make short term trips a reality. Thanks to the local volunteers in each country, and your generous donations, Viviana and her team have been able to help indigenous communities, orphanages, and nursery homes, spreading the message of love and hope. Even in the midst of uncertain times and global commotion we can make a difference in someone else's life
