Our grantee partners in Paraguay expand economic opportunity, enhance peace and security, improve democratic governance, and reduce the motivation to migrate.
We invest in local organizations that stem corruption, create jobs, reduce rural poverty, and counter the influence of international criminal organizations. Our grantee partners work with underserved populations—including indigenous people, people with disabilities, and youth—in some of the poorest regions of the country, such as the semiarid Chaco.
We awarded our first grant in Paraguay in 1974. Since then, we have provided $26 million through 180 grants to local organizations.
