The Ugly Truth:
Guatemala has the 3rd highest rate of malnutrition in the world, and 30,000 people die from water related illnesses each year—90% of them are children.
Our mission is to promote opportunities for self-reliance in rural Guatemala. Hands For Peacemaking works through a myriad of projects aimed at increasing the quality of life, health, and education for Guatemala’s poor.
