Welcome to Friends of Paraguay! 


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. 




The FOP Board of Trustees has six board positions available and is requesting nominations. This is a great opportunity for our members to volunteer their time, effort, and skills to grow Friends of Paraguay into a stronger organization. The following positions will be up for election in the next cycle:

  • 6 general board members (2-year term)
  • Term will begin February 2022

Returned Peace Corps Volunteers from Paraguay must be a paid member of Friends of Paraguay as of January 15th, 2022 will be eligible to stand for election. Candidate bios and headshots are due by the close of business on January 21st, 2022.  The election will take place from February 1 - February 5, 2022.  More information will be available as the election date gets closer.  Please send completed bios, headshots, and questions to the governance committee at Questions can be directed to Steven Berk at 740-505-2026.
