The National Peace Corps Association is a nonprofit organization encompassing a network of over 50,000 individuals and more than 140 member groups. The NPCA and its member groups produce advocacy campaigns, global education programs, and provide community, national and international services. It is governed by a board of directors, and is managed by a professional staff. It is separate from the United States Peace Corps, which is a federal agency.
OÍSTE is a quarterly online magazine, written and edited by Peace Corps Colombia volunteers, highlighting projects in the community, spotlighting volunteers, staff members and counterparts, and commenting on daily life on the Coast.
Founded by Colombia RPCV Maureen Orth, the Marina Orth Foundation has dedicated itself to creating an education model that can be replicated so that primary and secondary students in Colombia and elsewhere, no matter their race, gender or economic background, can compete globally and make a positive contribution to the world.
The purpose of the Magdalena Foundation is to improve and promote academic excellence and to provide job opportunities for the poor, thus alleviating poverty in the State of Magdalena in Colombia, South America. The foundation offers scholarships to meritorious high school students who graduate at the top of their class and wish to pursue higher education but lack the financial resources for this objective.
Focused on education, Fundehumac offers integrated support to scholars of primary, secondary and higher education. All the students must maintain meritorious academic work and make contributions to the social programs of the community.
