The mission of ATRAVES is to support a community of small Nicaraguan organizations that are carrying out creative, locally autonomous approaches to development, education, health and justice. ATRAVES is an acronym for Asociación TransAmericana de Voluntarios En Solidaridad, meaning "TransAmerican Association of Volunteers in Solidarity." The word is pronounced "ah-trah-VASE," pronounced the same as the Spanish phrase "a través." The phrase means "across," or "by means of," and is the inspiration for our tagline: work across borders/trabajando a través de las fronteras.
