Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Child Hunger Solutions

Child malnutrition rate is one of the highest in Guatemala: 56, 9% of children under 5 years old are suffering from food insecurity in rural communities. Together with The Department of Health, we offer solutions by overseeing infants and toddlers on a regular basis, providing their families with appropriate information as well as malnutrition treatment, vitamins and anthelmintic medication. All children in critical condition are treated under our doctors’ supervision at the clinic. Nobody is left behind.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Economically disadvantaged people

More than 80% of women in rural communities enter into a marriage as teenagers - at the age of 12 - and become a mother of six children on average. More than 90% of them would rather not have such a big family. We are introducing birth control methods to the local community, offering family planning options - including long-term contraception - to prevent unwanted pregnancy. We believe that every woman has the right to choose when to become a mother and how many children to have.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth
Women and girls

The majority of women find out they are pregnant in the second trimester. This is a very dangerous situation for both the mother and the child as the mother hasn’t been receiving the necessary care and nutrition on time, probably, has been even taking unsafe medication. Improper communicable, maternal, perinatal and nutritional conditions are cause of death for 34% of the population. We are fighting for women’s right to visit a doctor during the early stages of pregnancy in order to protect her and her unborn child’s health. We believe that every life matters.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls
Infants and toddlers

There are a lot of people, suffering from type 1 diabetes, in Guatemala and Nicaragua. This is a genetic disease, disconnected with eating habits, which cause 5% of all deaths. The government is not able to provide treatment for all diabetes patients, therefore we are helping them to overcome the disease with insulin treatments. Most of the patients arrive to our clinics in critical condition and need to be hospitalized. We are doing all we can to stabilize and rehabilitate them. At the same time, we are providing the local community with appropriate information, giving lectures on public health.

Population(s) Served
People with diseases and illnesses
Indigenous peoples

Equity strategies

Last updated: 01/24/2023

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
