Helping to Build a Better Future in Tobati, Paraguay
Team Tobatí is an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged youth in Tobatí, Paraguay while at the same time offering high school students from the United States the powerful experience of working directly for a greater good in the developing world. Partnering with Tobatí community leaders and organizations, the Team constructs classrooms and schools, funds important social programs, and supports medical services and initiatives. Each March, high school volunteers from Kingswood Oxford school spend ten days in Tobatí partnering with Paraguayan students from the Macchi School to work extensively on dozens of projects, which strengthen the medical and education infrastructure offered to the region's poor.
Team Tobatí's aid to the region is not limited to the service trips. Throughout the entire year the Team finances significant development projects that make improvements in all areas of community life. The team's mission is exemplified by the Macchi School. This institution, 100% funded by the Team, provides the best education in the state of Cordillera, Paraguay and does so exclusively for the poorest students in the region. Team Tobatí teaches both American and Paraguayan youth that when working together todo es posible.
