The World Vision International Foundation strengthens the knowledge of the volunteer staff working in the communities of Huehuetenango and San Juan Sacatepéquez. The goal is to reduce malnutrition in children under five and infant mortality.
Guatemala, whose name in Nahuatl means "place of many trees", is an eminently rural country, very attached to the indigenous culture and the Mayan heritage of its population. Between 1960 and 1996 it suffered a long civil war, known as the Internal Armed Conflict, which left more than 200,000 victims. We support projects that benefit the Guatemalan society.

400 people benefit from the Futuro Vivo Association Development Program and particularly young people and women.
