POVERTY IS COMPLEX
65% of people in Guatemala live in poverty – not just economic, but physical, spiritual and mental. Over our thirty yeas of serving the poor, we’ve identified eight forms of poverty that reinforce each other – that keep the poor excluded, manipulated and unable to build their own opportunities.
DEVELOP. EMPOWER. MULTIPLY.
Even the poorest Guatemalan communities have leaders. When we establish long term relationships with at risk communities we invite the community leaders to engage and participate in a community transformation process. We do this through community centers.
