Fundación Aldeas de Paz is a sustainable, grassroots NGO located in Santa Elena de Uairén, Venezuela near the border of Brazil.
Founded in 2001, we seek to promote a cultural exchange that fosters peace and empowers young people.
We are run almost exclusively by the efforts and through the creativity of our volunteers.
Our work is mainly directed towards the youth of Santa Elena de Uairén by giving them additional education that they would otherwise be unable to receive.
Aldeas de Paz gives you the opportunity to make a difference in the community of Santa Elena de Uairén through a variety of volunteer programs, while meeting individuals from different cultures and backgrounds, learning Spanish and enjoying the breathtaking landscapes of the Canaima National Park on the Venezuela-Brazil border. We believe that through this cultural exchange, local and international volunteers gain valuable experience for their future and are prepared to be role models for change worldwide.
