Our Local Network

We worked together during eight months to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on 500+ vulnerable families in Guatemala City.
We coordinated and developed tools, strategies and actions with a network of 8 strategic partnerships that included organizations with expertise in project management, fund administration, volunteer recruitment, logistics and community participation and diagnostics. Together we strengthened our work and our impact.
