We help build lasting solidarity between the North and South.
We firmly believe change starts in our own communities. By engaging with Canadians in meaningful ways, we promote greater awareness of the challenges people in Central America and Mexico face and the ways our partners work to overcome them. Similarities and differences are explored, knowledge and experiences are shared, and bridges are built when people in the North and South connect.
What We Do
We provide unique opportunities to travel to Central America and Mexico, and learn about the region’s challenges. Our tours enable travellers to connect closely and directly with our grassroots partners and participants. These transformative experiences are a chance for you to explore the history of the host country while immersed in the local culture.
Every year, representatives from our partner grassroots organizations in Central America or Mexico visit Canada to engage directly with Canadian audiences. Our visiting partners deliver compelling presentations and lectures, host roundtables, and meet personally with our supporters across the country.
We engage with young Canadians to help future generations better understand the issues in Central America and Mexico and learn how they can become agents of change. Our presentations, workshops, and dedicated programs are educational and fun, and are carried out across high schools, student associations, and on university grounds.
Once a year, Horizons recognizes the exceptional volunteerism and leadership of Canadians and partners in Central America and Mexico who address social inequality and injustice.
We work alongside other like minded groups and non-governmental organizations in Canada to promote positive policies and practices in Central America and Mexico.
