Welcome to Friends of Paraguay!

Friends of Paraguay (FOP) is a non-profit 501 (c)3 organization, created in 1987. Our mission is to promote cross-cultural exchange and support Paraguayan social and economic development through a network of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and other individuals and organizations connected with Paraguay.

Membership dues and contributions enable FOP to provide financial support for small projects in Paraguay, publish a newsletter and directory, and maintain this website. Membership to FOP enables you to keep aware of activities of former volunteers and friends, keep informed of Peace Corps activities, make new contacts to help toward your personal, social and professional development, and continue supporting socio-economic development in Paraguay.
