Our Mission


We work primarily with disadvantaged children and adolescents in an extremely poor barrio of Nagarote by providing an afterschool program and tutoring program at our community center, primary school and university scholarships, and support for a model preschool/teacher training center.

We also run a model organic farm, Seeds of Youth, to serve as a learning lab for our youth and local farmers to learn about sustainable farming methods.

We value…

  • education, community service, leadership development and environmental and economic sustainability;

  • empowerment over charity;

  • a long-term sustainable relationship and cross-cultural experiences between our communities; and

  • the democratic process, human rights, and social justice for all people
