The Need is Great in Guatemala
Guatemala has the largest population in Central America that has enjoyed a relatively stable economic growth over the last few decades. Despite that economic growth, Guatemala’s economic inequality and poverty have increased, especially among the rural indigenous population. While we are grateful to be a part of the solution to end extreme poverty, but there is still much work that needs to be done. With 49% of Guatemalans still living under the overall poverty line of $5.50 per day or less, our team in Guatemala is always looking for ways to improve our programs to effectively mentor and teach the humble hardworking people here.
