Family Planning could have saved Brunilde’s life. Her fate became our destiny.

Our story begins with one woman and how her death in childbirth led to the birth of a Foundation.

The Turimiquire Foundation is the first and only non-profit of its kind in northeastern Venezuela.

We help families control their fertility, educate their children, build community, and gain access to life-changing medical and humanitarian aid.
Turimiquire, pronounced Too-ree-mee-kée-ray, means “Seat of the Gods” in the indigenous Carib language.
LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR EDUCATION, FAMILY PLANNING, AND OTHER VITAL SERVICES:

Family Planning
The first and crucial step towards empowering women is to offer them the means to control their own fertility.

Education
Once families gain control of their fertility, they can concentrate on giving their children the best possible future through schooling.

Sustainable Livelihood
Our low-impact rural development and ecological agriculture initiatives serve a dual purpose – to preserve local ecosystems and promote self-employment for rural populations.

Humanitarian Aid
Venezuela is in crisis: its lower income people are tragically vulnerable to the lack of public services and widespread scarcity of even common medicines.

SMALL FOUNDATION, BIG IMPACT
