People for Guatemala, Inc.

Mission: To promote human advancement by engaging the poor in rural Guatemala through health and community development to effect long-term change in families and their communities Our goal is to break the vicious cycle of poverty by working hand-in-hand with the indigenous Mayans in rural mountain communities in San Martin, Jilotepeque. We engage the people to participate in projects to improve their health and overall well-being. At the same time they learn skills and strategies to promote sustainable development in their communities.
Saving Lives - Improving Health in Rural Guatemala
 
The 90,000 people living in rural villages in San Martin, Jilotepeque lack even the most basic health care. Most have no access to treatment or medicine. We operate 12 clinics each month. Our health team is sensitive to the indigenous culture. We focus on educating patients about nutrition, hygiene, how to manage chronic and acute diseases, prenatal care and child development. Without our care men, women, and especially children will go untreated because families lack resources to see doctors project reportread updates from the field
Bringing technology to rural schools in Guatemala
 
Children and teachers living in rural Mayan villages do not have the opportunity to gain computer skills. Our project will install 155 computers at 10 critically under-served schools. We will provide computer training for 70 teachers, who will use this information to teach 2,500 students math, science, and reading skills using age-appropriate educational software. This education will provide better opportunities for the children, the teachers, and the community as a whole. project reportread updates from the field
