During the last months of 2021, we held our local meeting of working children and adolescents, where they were able to reflect on their being a worker, as well as the rights to which they have rights and how to enforce them from their reality.
65 children and adolescents from the three markets where we carried out the interventions participated in it.

We started this year with the energy to continue working for the well-being of more than 250 indigenous working children, promoting and asserting their rights.

Thank you for continuing to be part of this promotion and defense of the rights of indigenous working children.
From Melel Xojobal we wish you a Happy 2022!
