Give to Gracia


In Guatemala, 55% of the population lives below the poverty line. Many have little to no income and are homeless. They live in unsafe environments and most suffer from hunger and malnourishment. Without a voice in society, they lack access to education and are subjected to social discrimination.  

Guatemala remains a patriarchal and agrarian society, often leaving young women and girls last in line for schooling. Yet, research shows investment in young women is profitable both financially and socially.

With employment and income-earning capability, these young women gain in confidence and self-worth.
 
 
Your gift is tax-deductible. In helping Gracia, you are helping a young woman in Guatemala to learn basic life skills, empowering her to become self-reliant and breaking the cycle of poverty.
