Challenge

Local communities throughout the Americas face a variety of challenges that impede their advancement in terms of bettering education, improving health and developing economic opportunities. Latin America and the Caribbean are severely affected by problems of poverty and vulnerability which affect 167 million people in the region, of which 84.5 million are children under 17 years old.

Solution

America Solidaria identifies the pressing needs of the community in collaboration with trusted NGOs, works with local leaders and organizations to design and implement programs, and places skilled volunteers in local organizations to support the implementation of these projects. We build networks of cooperation among our fellows, community organizations, and the public and private sectors, each committed to improving the well-being of the Americas.

Long-Term Impact

Education: Increased educational opportunities for children, improved school performance and access to early childhood and special educational services, and improved school environments; Health: Improved positive health choices and increased healthcare for children and youth combating malnutrition; Economic development: Increased economic opportunity for low-income individuals and families by improving access to skills and job training in agriculture and entrepreneurship.
