We are changing Guatemala

We have worked fior the past 10 years in Guatemala, generating sustainable impact with over 10,000 people and 124 communities across Guatemala´s rural area.  

We work with groups of women living in vulnerable communities that understand the impact malnutrition has on their family´s future and are willing to work towards a healthier lifestyle for them an their children.

We provide intensive training in food and nutritional security, food preparation, child stimulation, agricultural activities, local associations for savings and credits and income generation.

We are family-centered, even though our primary focus is in woman, we have specific initiatives both for husband and children.

Our mission

Prevent chronic malnutrition through skill development in women and their families.

Our vision

A new generation of healthier Guatemalans with access to better opportunities.

Our Team

Our primary strenght relies in our Team. We have over 50 technicians in our team who train and develop families throughout the whole program.
