UNITED BY FRIENDSHIP INC Overview
For many families in Central America, each day is a struggle for the basic necessities of life such as clean water, health care and basic education.

United by Friendship partners with Central American communities to provide clean water systems, improve health care and educational resources and provide economic development. The beneficiaries participate in identifying their priorities and contribute a portion of the cost of the projects.UbF has on-site local volunteers assisting and coordinating the projects. UbF has strong working relationships with local leaders in the communities they serve. Additionally, UbF volunters from the United States make annual visits to the project sites, strenghening networks and friendships in the course of their mission.
