"Compassion and social justice across borders"
Casa-Pueblito is a non-profit, international organization that facilitates community development and intercultural learning, with a focus on youth, in Canada and Latin America
WHAT'S NEW at CASA - PUEBLITo
We're close to confirming our exciting projects for the upcoming year and can't wait to share them with you. As always, our projects are designed by communities themselves to address their most urgent needs. Thank you for supporting us as we work for social justice and compassion across borders!
Over 2 weeks, with Tilly Gobble from Photographers without Borders, we traveled across Nicaragua visiting our partner communities. We talked to dozens of community members & asked if we could share pieces of their stories, and lives, with you. Portraits from Nicaragua, an online photo exhibit, is what they shared with us. Visit the exhibit today!
Alumni and Board Member Spotlights
Recently we asked students, teachers, community members, staff and supporters about what Casa - Pueblito means to them. In the coming months, we'll be featuring new alumni and board member spotlights. Visit our Blog page to read about their experiences!
