Mission

We work with citizens to find solutions to community needs and improve the quality of life for people locally, contributing to human and economic development of our country.

Most Meaningful Change

We opened a community center where different people, groups and community associations find resources and spaces to organize activities, both for their members and for the general population. This has increased the supply of education initiatives and cultural activities, and has revitalized public participation and partnership.
