The Foundation

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 cultural exchange between locals and international volunteers that fosters peace and empowers children and young people.


Our Work

We are run exclusively by the efforts and through the creativity of our volunteers and interns. Volunteering with us makes a difference and is extremely rewarding!

We support local youth by giving them additional educational and recreational opportunities that they would otherwise be unable to receive.

Volunteer with Us

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.
