About our organization

Fundación AFOS (Assistance for the Fortification of Social Organizations) is a non-profit whose mission is to assist the consolidation and growth of other small and midsized non profits in the city of Córdoba, Argentina. Its main objective is to generate initiatives, projects and tools for these organizations to carry out their daily tasks and achieve their long-term goals.

For each project we combine our experience and resources with the help of foreign volunteers and interns who contribute their time, energy and know-how to support our mission. Thus, volunteer / intern participation is a key value, as the talent and knowledge they bring to our organizations reinforce the quality and effectiveness of our assistance.

Another key objective is to achieve the continuity of projects over time through a consistent incorporation of new interns and volunteers who collaborate in current activities and create new ones, thereby providing feedback and improving each project.

I had a very good experience with Fundacion AFOS. They found me a good place to live in a private home, when the first work did not work out they found me a place where I could really contribute.
