As Paraguayan adoptees are now in their young adult years, we are finding there is a need for a travel program suited to their unique interests.

Who is Next Gen: Paraguay for?

  • Adult Paraguayan adoptees, traveling solo or accompanied by those who are part of their lives.
  • Spouses, friends, significant others, children of adoptees.
  • Parents, grandparents, siblings, extended family–all are welcome.

Whoever you decide you would like to travel with, we’ll be inclusive and provide activities they will enjoy.

Each departure will likely be unique with a unique makeup of participants. We’re flexible and will add in activities according to the group that gathers.
