Mission Statement

To teach men and women in rural Guatemala to organize themselves to access resources and realize opportunities for better health, education, and employment

Description

We work only in San Martin, Jilotepeque, which is about 1 hour from La Antigua, Guatemala. We achieve our mission by working with men and women living in rural villages teaching them how to build their capacity to make changes in their families and communities. Projects include building potable water systems, constructing schools, improving health by conducting medical clinics, installing Chapina low-smoke stoves, and building composting latrines. We teach individuals how to develop skills to work together in groups. We have worked in over 40 villages in San Martin, Jilotepeque over the past five years.
