Partnerships

Reciprocity is central to our relationship with institutions whose curricula and pedagogy align with our program activities, while achieving the research and outside the classroom goals of partners.

"Partnerships are a reciprocal relationship between rural communities and organizations seeking to make an impact and learning from that experience"

Partnerships

ViviendasLeón seeks partnerships with Universities whose curriculum supports outside the classroom experiences in research, field work, thesis, capstone, and project development and implementation.

Through partnerships we hope to advance the efficacy, scope and scale of our work among rural communities in Central America in our six program areas: Human Capacity Training, Farming and Nutrition, Reforestation, Water and Sanitation, Small Business development, and Infrastructure development.
