This dynamic program serves preschool children from birth to age 6 and their families through quality education and home visits.

ASAPROSAR’s microcredit programs offer loans to people— especially women— who are excluded from the formal banking system.
Because malnutrition is rampant in many rural areas, ASAPROSAR encourages the farmers to grow nutritious crops, how to prevent soil erosion, and use organic fertilizers and pesticides.
This study/travel course will provide students with experiential learning opportunities in three areas: Spanish language immersion, culture, and service.
