Causes For Change International Started in the Landmark Education SELP in 1996

Causes for Change International is a 5013c registered charity based in Chicago. It was founded in 1996 by Chicago business woman Zully Alvarado while a participant in the Landmark Education Self Expression and Leadership Program. Zully, born in Ecuador, contracted polio at the age of two and for most of her childhood was not able to do what other children were able to do. Thanks to the help of a Catholic Priest and his family in Chicago, Zully was able to come to the United States for medical treatment and education. Children in the developing world who have disabilities have a tremendous challenge. She created Causes For Change as a way of contributing to children and families in some of the poorest regions of Ecuador. For more information on Causes for Change International visit
