Santa Rosa Group's story

Mrs. Gladys M. was the contact who started the current committee and invited her store keeping neighbors. With the company of the previous assessor, Mayra Lamas, she informed them of the program the Paraguay Foundation offers. A few years passed and nowadays the committee finds itself in their 12th cycle with 17 integrated partners all with independent activities, such as the buying and selling groceries, boxes of cooking oil, boxes of vegetables, fruit, purchasing beauty products etc.

Fittingly, their responsibility and determination stand out. Of course, the integrated partners have matured and grown since the start up to today.
