How we work

We are committed to giving socially marginalized communities in Latin America a fair chance at social participation, education, and income to overcome poverty on their own.

... and why

After years of economic growth and social progress, hunger is on the rise again in Latin America. The region is also suffering from the consequences of climate change. Many families, children and young people live in poverty. They need support to rise out of poverty and actively shape their futures.
