Peace Corps Paraguay Turns 50!

We are in a very special year, as we celebrate 50 years since Peace Corps first arrived in Paraguay. There will be many celebrations in both the United States and Paraguay. We are currently raising funds to help current volunteers and their Paraguayan counterparts attend the various events in Paraguay, especially the commemoration to be held at the U.S. Embassy in Asuncion during their 4th of July celebration, as well as other related events and activities.

Friends of Paraguay (FOP) is a non-profit 501 (c)3 organization, created in 1987. Our mission is to promote cross-cultural exchange and support Paraguayan social and economic development through a network of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers and other individuals and organizations connected with Paraguay. 

Membership dues and contributions enable FOP to provide financial support for small projects in Paraguay, publish a newsletter and directory, and maintain this website. Membership to FOP enables you to keep aware of activities of former volunteers and friends, keep informed of Peace Corps activities, make new contacts to help toward your personal, social and professional development, and continue supporting socio-economic development in Paraguay. 


Join Friends of Paraguay via the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA). NPCA membership is free, and affiliation with Friends of Paraguay only costs $15 per year and helps support our various projects.
