In 2009, Mennonite Central Committee, from their Colombia office, began to contribute significant support for the refugee ministry. Some refugees become an integral part of the congregation during the time they are in Quito. While this ministry began in response to Colombian refugees, currently people from diverse nationalities are arriving, including many Venezuelans.</p><p>In 2003, the congregation began a peace education program with neighborhood children, including peace education and nonviolence workshops once a month for boys and girls of the sector who are between 5 and 12 years old. The work expanded to include an after-school program EduPaz that gives homework help and broader learning opportunities for neighborhood children.</p><p>In 2020 the Quito Mennonite Church started an initiative together with Mennonite Mission Network for a Peace and Reconciliation Center offering online training on topics like conflict transformation, reconciliation and peace for students in and outside of Quito.  <br></p>
