Travel with Agros
You’re invited to join Agros on a Vision Trip and have a firsthand look at the ways we’re breaking the cycle of poverty for farming families in Latin America. Each Vision Trip is about a week long and includes opportunities to visit the communities where Agros works, meet the families Agros serves, and see Agros’ model in action. In the past, activities have included participating in a coffee harvest with Agros partners in La Bendición, Nicaragua, celebrating the inauguration of a new health clinic in San José, Nicaragua, and meeting the goats of Agros’ business center in the Ixil Region of Guatemala. Hearing direct from Agros partners about their lives, goals, and successes is an essential and inspiring feature of every Vision Trip.
Vision Trips are designed for individuals who have made or who are considering making a personally significant gift to Agros.
