FundaOGI´s mandate is to empower youth to engage in community building, dialogue, and democratic processes. The organization develops and implements educational youth programming that focuses on the four core themes of Human Rights, Environment, Collaborative Leadership, and Social Entrepreneurship.

Projects are designed with the goal to increase youth capacity to transform knowledge into creative youth action projects that promote social change in their own lives and communities. FundaOGI works both locally and internationally to promote human rights and youth action. In only three years, the foundation has grown to host 64 volunteers, from 18 countries around the world, and is achieving visible results in the area of youth engagement without having received even a single penny of government or private funding.
