Get to Know the Community Assistance Program

Empower a Leader, Educate a Nonprofit, Build a Resilient Community

Through its Community Assistance Program (CAP), Hearts of Gold partners with small nonprofit organizations and their community leaders in the Azuay province of Ecuador that serve marginalized populations. We believe that nonprofits are the backbone of a strong society. We support, inspire, educate, and invest in community leaders and grassroots organizations and their staff to make their work sustainable, efficient, and impactful. The CAP uses mentoring, capacity building workshops, dialogues and networking to have a large impact and long term solutions for nonprofits and their struggling communities.
