The Close of this Campaign

Lucy Teaching!

Almost a year already since you supported our first giving season crowdfunding campaign! We learned a lot in that campaign and have continued to learn many things since. This year, we won’t be running a crowdfunding campaign, but we are hosting at least two events over these next few months with the hopes to continue training Guatemalans in civic advocacy. If you are in Antigua, Guatemala, or Boston, Massachusetts be checking out facebook page (@liderazgoguatemala1) to learn about these exciting events!

In the last three months we have facilitated several high-quality personal and professional growth opportunities for Central Americans, including the project we mentioned in our last update with the survivors of Volcano Fuego’s devastating 2018 eruption. With another local organization, SERES, the ALG team went to Escuintla four times to offer an introduction to restorative practices training. For every training we had participation of 10 people, many of which worked for the community governing system. Each of the participants of the training were leaders of some variation and will be integral to transforming the neighborhood of shelters they live in into a healthy and thriving community. We were consistently delighted by the interest and commitment to applying the principles we taught each session. It is our hope that the leaders take the learning they encountered in our trainings and bring them to the areas within their community that need it the most. After more than a year of living in these shelters, the community is aching for some healing and ways to be more active in deciding their future. Restorative practices are the way for them to achieve those goals. 

This is the last report we will be writing for this project and we just want to take a minute to thank you for your help in strengthening the local leaders of Guatemala so that they can be the change this country needs to move forward. Your partnership is invaluable and we are deeply grateful. Stay connected through Global Giving, Facebook (@liderazgoguatemala1) and instagram (@guatemalaliderazgo)
