The Fund works through a Guatemalan staff based in Chimaltenango, Guatemala. It supports two programs: an Educational Program which includes scholarships for secondary education, workshops, writing program, and an intern program to provide work experience for young women and a Women’s Development Program which facilitates projects initiated by women’s groups in Chumanzana, Chichicastenango, Quiche and Santa Clara la Laguna, Sololá, Guatemala. Projects to date have included an organic gardening project, a sewing course, and a microcredit program.
