Gender equality is a tangible problem in Guatemala, and it affects more than just women; it impacts their families, from one generation to the next. Together we prove how important women's role is in society. Become part of the change by volunteering in women empowerment.
Unfortunately, girls and women are not as valued in the Guatemalan Culture. However, when a girl is educated, she carries this knowledge and passes it onto her children. When a girl learns to read, the woman she grows into is more likely to read to her children. The program's vision and purpose are to provide education, nutrition, counseling, mentoring and long-term sustainability programs.
Come and volunteer with us in the most eye-opening and rewarding program of showing women their actual value and worth!
