Welcome to the website of the
Latin American Concerns Committee!

  English or español

The committee was established to help Friends share information about projects in Latin America related to the Quaker Meetings in Pacific Yearly Meeting (PYM). These projects support education and scholarships for low income students, address the causes and effects of poverty and violence, meet basic community needs, and provide training in conflict resolution. Many offer opportunities for volunteering and for educational trips to their countries.

to find information about three programs with close ties to Quaker meetings in Pacific Yearly Meeting:
