Connecting communities and empowering agents of change, ViviendasLeón is dedicated to eliminating rural poverty

ViviendasLeón is a non-profit organization whose mission is to eliminate rural poverty by:


Building capacities for self sufficiency in rural communities

Educating our next generation to become engaged and informed global citizens

For more than twenty years, we have involved international groups of students, educators and families in our development work in Central America, fostering cross-cultural awareness and a commitment to social justice -- while working with rural communities to achieve measurable, sustainable improvements in their standards of living.

I have only appreciation in my heart for ViviendasLeón, because of their consistent presence in the community, giving us technical assistance, and encouraging us to move forward despite the problems that arise. ViviendasLeón is more than an organization, it is part of my family.
