In July 2023, a diverse group of 13 individuals, ranging in age from 18 to 65, embarked on a transformative journey to Paraguay. Their primary destination was the Leda Project - A Sustainable Development Project in Paraguay, where they learned about sustainable environmental efforts through the fishing industry & cattle farming, and immersed themselves in the world of natural resources.

Leda’s 2018 Special Campaign to buy a Boat

The remoteness of the Leda Settlement has been an advantage in keeping its environment pristine but for it to progress as a global model it needs to be more directly connected to metropolitan areas. The primary means of transportation in the Pantanal wetlands zone is by boat.  Currently, only slow and limited boat service is available and is no longer adequate. A purchase of a new ferry boat for the transportation of food and passengers is essential for the settlements successful development






Pathways to a Sustainable Future Programs provide experiences in seeing how communities struggle to develop in a healthy and sustainable way. Volunteers will learn how to implement creative approaches to hunger eradication and will be able to appreciate how these approaches are often linked to traditional wisdom.  


Making new friendships with people from different cultures and backgrounds is part of the program experience and often is what program alumni remember best.  If you would like to overcome barriers of distrust and misunderstanding and replace them with relationships of concern and cooperation, please consider sharing this experience with us.


Join us and become someone who can truly make a difference!
