The Kateri Tekakwitha Fund exists to empower Guatemalan women to break the cycle of poverty by having a positive impact on their lives, families, and communities through collaboration, educational scholarships, and support.
The Kateri Fund has two main projects. The Kateri Education Funds awards scholarships to Guatemalan indigenous young women to attend junior high and high school career training. Through Mission: Guatemala it works with three women's groups as they indentify their needs and helps them initiate the programs they develop to meet these needs through skills development and microfinancing.
