Guatemala is a beautiful nation with a rich culture and history, but unfortunately, economic inequality and poverty have become increasingly prevalent, especially among the rural indigenous population.
We believe every person deserves the opportunity to thrive, regardless of their circumstances. That’s why many of our training programs have been translated into the local Mayan dialect to better serve the indigenous communities.
According to the World Bank, a staggering 49% of the population in Guatemala lives below the poverty line, struggling to survive on $5.50 or less per day. Even for those with jobs, almost 95 percent earn insufficient salaries to meet their family’s basic needs.
But there is hope. Individuals and families can transform generational poverty into sustainable self-reliance through our in-depth classes, individualized mentoring, and access to small loans. We offer business and vocational training tailored to everyone’s needs and goals, empowering them to either start their own business or work for someone else. Our clients also receive ongoing mentoring to help them keep progressing toward their goals.
The impact of our work extends far beyond individual success stories. It creates a ripple effect of prosperity throughout local communities, promoting sustainable economic growth and improving the quality of life for everyone.
We urge you to join us in caring for the people of Guatemala. With your compassion and support, we can continue to positively impact the lives of those in need.
