Central American NGO Alliance Program
Latina Republic seeks to provide support and resources so that the humanitarian projects of the organizations with whom we partner can obtain long-term sustainability and become impactful over time.
Latina Republic carries out a rigorous selection of NGOs and projects that advance human rights. Once selected, organizations submit applications for grant agreements through which they detail their projects and provide various documentation and plans for their annual goals.
Latina Republic is a California-based nonprofit organization formed to operate exclusively for charitable purposes in support of local NGOs qualified to operate in Central and South America. Through donations, gifts and grants, Latina Republic seeks to provide funding to promising organizations and impactful projects that are based in the region. Our work is accomplished through partnerships, grant agreements and story advocacy.
In Latin America, we maintain a grantmaking relationship with awarded NGOs to support the work carried out by staff and volunteers who work for the NGOs as agents of the NGOs. Latina Republic has identified visionary NGO’s that are succeeding against all odds. It is the work of these valiant organizations that Latina Republic seeks to bring to light and to help support.
We invite you to donate to help these heroic groups transform their communities. 100% of your donations will go towards the transformative work of the NGO’s and community projects we support:
Multiple Disability Rights Foundation: In El Salvador, the complexity of treatment required for children and adults living with multiple disabilities causes those living with multiple disabilities to be excluded from public schools, the workplace and other public sites. To make matters more difficult, El Salvador does not provide disability benefits to the families caring for children with disabilities, which stresses families emotionally, financially and medically.

Future Journalist Program
Latina Republic offers hands-on internships to university students across the United States interested in pursuing journalistic careers in the Americas and advancing democracy, human rights and diplomatic relations between the United States and Latin America. We are dedicated to expanding dialogue in the Western Hemisphere and raising awareness of rich cultural traditions and the everyday challenges and solutions in progress across Latin America and the immigrant experience in the United States.
Latina Republic works with career centers to offer university credit. The interns participate in two rewarding programs: Latin American Correspondent Internship and Immigration Writers Internship.
Through our Voces Program, Latina Republic collaborates with journalists from Latin America and serves as a platform to amplify their voices, showcase their work and highlight local expert reporting on recovery efforts from the impact of COVID-19, the protection of cultural heritage, and the telling of stories unknown beyond the borders of their countries.
Latina Republic’s mission is focused on understanding Latin America, one voice at a time, thus we believe it is vital to make space, celebrate and work alongside journalists from Latin America inviting their talents to report on topics often taboo in local countries revolving around the lives and rights of groups and topics that are repressed, silenced and suppressed. They equally share beautiful stories of cultural heritage, tourism, patrimony, the arts and local community that few know about and that offer new perspectives on countries typically stereotyped or reduced to single problematic narratives. We also believe that solutions journalism from the local perspective offers important insights to solving social problems in the region.
