Poverty in Guatemala

Children growing up in poverty in Guatemala face many difficulties including gangs, violence, drugs, poor education and a lack of jobs, chronic malnutrition and a high teen-pregnancy rate.

That is why we focus on providing educational assistance to keep kids in school, programs in our centers to allow them to learn and grow in a safe environment, as well as nutrition support and health programs.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
