Goals: Founded in 1987 by Eliana Mariana Galarza Garzón, this project seeks to improve community health by empowering individuals to take an active role in personal and collective well-being.

Results: Initiatives recently undertaken by Vivir include a “Holistic Health House”, which educates patients regarding homeopathic and nutritional alternatives to expensive medicines, and a “Positive Caregiving” program that, via a series of workshops, teaches families how to raise healthy children through a combination of daily healthcare, nutrition, and age-appropriate stimulation.
