Poverty in Guatemala

Kids growing up in poverty in Guatemala face some of the toughest issues, such as a massive wealth gap, gang violence and high crime rates, difficulty staying in school, lack of jobs, chronic malnutrition and a high teen pregnancy rate.

That's why we focus on providing educational assistance to stay in school, a wide range of programs in our centers to learn and grow in a safe environment, youth leadership opportunities, fundamental nutrition support and reproductive health programs.

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