OUR PARTNERS


Building Dignity’s partnerships expand our programming and improve our results. 


Local Partners
  • Escuela Metropolitana de Formación de Emprendedores offers free courses for entrepreneurs to the community.
  • The Moyano Institute of Technology, an IT training institute in Villa El Salvador, worked with Building Dignity to bring computer education to Lomo de Corvina. 
  • The City of Lima partnered with Building Dignity in 2012 to bring 'Mujer Emprende' to the Center for Development with Dignity. The program trains women in the creation of artisanal handicrafts and enables them to generate income through the sale of their work at artisan fairs throughout the city.

International Partners
  • Princeton in Latin America, a non-profit organization in the United States that partners with non-profits throughout Latin America to match them with young, public sector professionals seeking full-year fellowships in the field of development. Each year, Princeton in Latin America (PiLA) matches Building Dignity with a talented young professional who joins our team as Program Director
  • The Omprakash Foundation, a web-based platform that connects grassroots health, education, and environmental projects around the world with volunteers, donors, and classrooms that can learn from and support their work. The network offers volunteer opportunities at over 150 grassroots social projects in more than 30 countries. Omprakash is completely free and provides grants to help qualified volunteers defray travel expenses. 
  • People's Congregational Church (Bayport, MN) awarded Building Dignity grants from 2012, which allowed us to substantially expand the Voices of Youth leadership program. Thanks to this support, Building Dignity more than doubled participation in the program, improved the curriculum, and invested in more youth-led service projects.
We are also thankful for the following university relationships that continue to provide dedicated and committed volunteers to the Center for Development with Dignity:
