Guatemala is located in Central America and represents the geographical center of the American continent. The state borders Mexico to the north, Belize to the east, Honduras to the southeast and El Salvador to the south. 42 percent of the total population are indigenous and mostly members of the Maya.
With the help of our partner FUNDAP, we enable particularly vulnerable groups such as the poor, single mothers or young people with disabilities to receive qualified schooling and/or vocational training. We then accompany the participants into professional life and support them in setting up small businesses.
Besides poverty, corruption and inadequate health care, the population of Guatemala suffers from chronic malnutrition and unequally distributed or lacking educational opportunities. Children and young people in particular feel the effects of this on a daily basis.
