AMIGOS participants live in the the departments of Paraguari and Misiones. Participants working with the Paraguayan Ministry of Health (SENASA) collaborate on a sanitation and latrine-building project. These hands-on construction activities are reinforced by health education activities facilitated by the AMIGOS participants. Participants assigned to work with Plan Paraguay similarly pair capacity-building activities with direct engagement in community-appropriate development projects. Plan participants also support family gardens and tree planting projects as well as workshops related to nutrition, community health, and environmental protection.
