Community Development

Paraguay Hope supports community development projects. 


Paraguay Hope supports community development projects that help to meet villagers’ basic needs and promote a higher quality of life. Projects can include building and/or renovating schools, libraries and computer labs; promoting clean water initiatives; teaching sustainable farming; and encouraging renewable energy and other environmental initiatives. In the past we have assisted with the construction of an elementary school and a church that also served as a community meeting center. Projects require active community contribution and participation from villagers. Community members contribute substantially to the projects by fundraising, transporting materials and completing the construction. With assistance from Paraguay Hope, villagers are able to take initiative to better their communities.
