Amigos de las Americas (AMIGOS) is a leader in international youth development, supporting young people across the Americas in leadership training and collaborative community development projects. We are creating a world in which young people become life-long catalysts for social change.
This project takes place the the departments of Paraguari and Misiones, Paraguay. Participants assigned to serve with the Paraguayan Ministry of Health (SENASA) will work on a sanitation and latrine-building project. Hands-on construction activities are reinforced by health education activities. Participants assigned to Plan Paraguay similarly pair capacity-building activities with direct engagement in community-appropriate development projects. Plan participants support family gardens and tree planting projects as well as workshops related to nutrition, community health, and environmental protection.
