In 1999, the people of Venezuela were happy. A few years earlier they were determined to be the fourth richest economy in the world and the riches economy in South America. The country received many tourist and was a paradise.
People voted in someone who promised lots of free stuff. That promise and hope of Free Stuff would soon cost them their freedom and their way of life. The life of political journalist became dangerous. You would either be jailed or killed.
The economy got worse and worse and people soon lived in poverty. Freedoms were lost and everyone became a slave to the state.
Our story took our founders into exile, spread throughout the globe and fighting for causes of freedom on a global scale.
The youth leadership program realized that it will take a village to protect our freedoms. A village of people throughout the planet working together to bring about the change towards freedom and away from cruel government rule.
Most of our volunteers are poor minorities. Others are high school or college students trying to make a difference while getting job experience.
We will continue our fight against Human Rights Abuses & loss of Freedoms by Government regulations and autocracy.

Maibort Petit (co-founder of Freedom Voice) is an extraordinary Venezuelan, tireless fighter against tyranny, the violation of human rights, and against criminals who have used the destruction of the Venezuelan economy at the expense of the misery of our people.
I have boundless admiration for Maibort and I love her dearly.
I have known Maibort Petit for many years as a journalist. During the years of democracy in Venezuela where she was already well known for her work in doing research about the ethical behavior of people in public office.
She is recognized as a serious practitioner of investigative journalism on the mismanagement of public resources.
