América Solidaria (AS) is an international network in the Americas. Founded in 2002 in Chile, and with offices in Bogota, Colombia; Port au Prince, Haiti; Lima, Peru; Montevideo, Uruguay; and Washington DC, U.S.; America Solidaria promotes effective volunteer engagement in the countries of the Americas.

 

As one of the very few Latin American nonprofit organization that alleviate poverty outside of its borders, we improve the quality of life for individuals living in poverty and promote integration and solidarity in the Americas by engaging highly qualified professional fellows to work on community programs with a focus on health, education and economic opportunities.

 

América Solidaria identifies pressing needs in the community, works with local leaders and organizations to design and implement programs, and places skilled volunteers in local organizations to support/implement these projects with focus in health, educational and economic opportunities, for children and youth living in poverty.
