TOGETHER FOR A JUST WORLD

Central America

Every day people from Central America and Mexico migrate to the USA. They flee from organized crime, poverty and lack of prospects. Since 2015, we have been working specifically on safe migration and on the development of local projects that aim to provide in particular young people and young adults with a place to stay.

 

 

Our new regional program runs until 2021 and focuses on safe migration routes for migrant workers from Central and South America. Also, the mission is to offer local projects for the local population to counteract poverty and violence.

Improving the living conditions of people with disabilities with handicrafts

The everyday life of people with disabilities in Guatemala is characterized by exclusion, intolerance and poverty. Our partner organization Artesanos de ADISA was founded by and for people with disabilities in order to give them the opportunity to earn their own money and improve their participation in society.

Food security for small scale farmers in Champerico

In Central America, El Niño has led to the worst droughts in decades and has caused a food crisis. About 3.5 million people are affected, with more than 1.3 million people in Guatemala. The consequences are particularly catastrophic for small farmers: the drought has destroyed a large part of their harvest.
