Building from Ground up: Our Work in the Region
SOS is invested in the local communities, improving lives from the ground up. Public services are in many places not able to help particular the rural communities.
To tackle the rampant poverty there is a focus on youth – much of the Latin American population is under 19 years old, 35 percent of Paraguay’s population is under 14 years old. If they are provided with the right foundations to fulfill their potential then things can improve one step at a time. This partly done through SOS youth centers, where mentorship is provided build their confidence guiding them on their journey to success.
