Kevin brushes his teeth daily with the help of volunteer tutors in Quito, Ecuador. The tutors travel to Quito every summer as part of The Quito Project, a student-run initiative that works with a family in Ecuador to bring aid and assistance to the underserved families there. Along with tutoring the children in math and science, they bring them what is most likely their only nutritious meal of the day, and teach them about personal hygiene, such as brushing their teeth and washing their hands. This is one of their favorite study breaks!
