Latin America & the Caribbean


People in the Western Hemisphere live in countries that are more democratic and economically open than three decades ago. Yet there remain pockets of insecurity, economic fragility and educational deficiencies that still need to be addressed. Creative has been leading innovative, sustainable development programs in key Latin American and Caribbean countries for four decades.

Creative’s programming in the hemisphere is built on evidence, proven tools and a deep understanding of local contexts. Projects are designed to be inclusive of marginalized groups, operate with local organizations and engage the private sector to ensure that the positive change put in motion lasts long after Creative’s interventions.

Since its first project in 1978 in Bolivia, Creative has expanded to nearly 20 countries in the region to promote citizen security, advance positive youth development, reduce the risk of gang violence, strengthen governance and the rule of law, build educational systems and develop economic opportunities.
