Our Plan.

We believe that change only happens when you take action. We turn crazy ideas into practical solutions to interrupt social and environmental problems that directly affect our community. As STARTERS we engage in community service and sustainable projects.

Raise Awareness.

By raising awareness of social and environmental issues in our communities, we motivate those with the desire of helping others to take action.

Take Action.

By volunteering and/or developing sustainable projects, we invite people to start with a small action, that leads to a greater outcome – in which we strive to create a network between people and countries.


We link individuals from different parts of the American continent to equip a network of human capital and financial resources by optimizing and allocating these in developing communities.

Sustainable Projects.

We develop sustainable projects that seek to make a long-term impact by addressing social or environmental issues in a community. Our projects seek to engage the community along with STARTERS in order to develop and support the project.

Community Service.

We serve local communities by engaging in volunteering programs coordinated by the organization itself and also by providing a helping hand to other organizations assisting their volunteering activities.
