About Us


Via International provides paths to self-reliance for an interdependent world

We integrate community development initiatives with education and voluntourism to build leadership and self-reliance in under-served communities.


We believe when people thrive, community thrives.

We believe that human potential is enhanced through self-reliant activities that promote community development, food security, social justice, and human dignity.

We believe that linking the resources and knowledge of students with the wisdom and ingenuity of the community creates a cultural exchange capable of raising awareness across the socioeconomic spectrum.  

We believe the reciprocal impact of these experiences results in lifelong transformation and value creation at all community levels.
