We provide children with tools and training they need to access education, overcome barriers and be a voice for change. We’ve had an office in Paraguay since 1995.
Partnering for change
Empowering youth to use their voices for change
In Paraguay, we work closely with communities, children and other partners to protect the youngest generation from violence. Then through skills-building, within organized support networks, these young dreamers gain the confidence to promote their right to be heard and get involved in activities and decisions affecting their futures with government support and collaboration.
