WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT

Photographs compliments of Wikepedia According to the CIA World Factbook, Guatemala's GDP per capita is US$5,000; however, this developing country still faces many social problems and is among the 10 poorest countries in Latin America. The distribution of income remains highly unequal with approximately 29% of the population living below the poverty line and just over 400,000 (3.2%) unemployed.

Since the year 2000, over 3,000 women have been murdered in Guatemala and less than 2% of cases have resulted in convictions, making Guatemala “the most dangerous place for women in all of Latin America”. In 2008 the United Nations ranked Guatemala worst in the entire Western hemisphere in terms of gender-related development, based on low levels of female literacy, schooling, earning power, and life expectancy. Guatemala also has the lowest percentage of women in congress in the hemisphere (8.2%).

Within this climate it is essential that we do all we can to establish a women's empowerment program. Details will be posted in the near future.
