IFF America in Chile : Institute of Formation Fondacio
The Institute of Formation Fondacio América Latina proposes an intercultural and innovative training in ethical leadership and social project entrepreneurship.

In recent years, Latin America and the Caribbean has undergone many political changes and has developed strongly in a short time. Unfortunately, this development has been very uneven throughout the continent, including Chile. In fact, 102 million people, a total 10.2% of the population, still live in a situation of extreme poverty (ECLAC, January 2019).
To fight against these inequalities and allow Latin American youth to be deeply trained to become actors of social change, is that IFF América, born in 2014 in Santiago de Chile. In this way, IFF America is preparing to fulfill its mission based on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Development Program through objective Nº4 - Quality Education.
The objective of IFF America is to offer to these young people, with a deep social vocation, the training that enables them in the conduct of social projects, based on their own conviction of leadership.
Through this experience, they will be able to actively discern their vocation, acquire the skills, leadership and project management tools, to create in their country of origin projects of high social impact that respond to local needs or to integrate existing social structures. IFF América facilitates a personal knowledge experience that allows each student to assume their life with an attitude of protagonist.
