Are you interested in making an impact on a global scale?
Heart-Links Lazos de Corazón is recruiting Board members who are committed to community, social justice and our global welfare.
Connecting local to global, Heart-Links works in solidarity with partner organizations in northern Peru as they address the root causes of poverty and social injustices in their communities. We finance and accompany initiatives in education, leadership training, women’s empowerment and health, among others. We also organize an annual trip to northern Peru for people who are interested in learning what it feels like to walk in solidarity with people from another part of the world.
