About Girl Empowerment Project
Guatemala is the most unequal country for females in Latin America, ranking 112th out of 135 countries around the world in gender equality. It also has the highest teen pregnancy rate in Latin America, with sexual assault sadly a common reality. This important girl empowerment program provides not only weekly workshops on social equality, puberty, self defense, and the importance of education, but also provides monthly personal hygiene packages so that girls can attend school and live with dignity. We welcome your one-time donation in any amount or ongoing sponsorship in a minimum suggested amount of $20 per month. Sponsors will receive regular updates and photos.
