We’re addressing the root causes of poverty in Guatemala with a unique integrated approach focused on four key areas: agriculture, community development, education and health care.
At the heart of our work is our strong network of local leaders, corporate and church partners and a community of thousands of volunteers. Together, we’re building the foundation for lasting change across Guatemala.
More than nine million Guatemalans live in poverty today, with nearly 4 million of those people living in extreme poverty.
More than a thousand HELPS volunteers travel to Guatemala each year. Medical professionals, master educators, construction experts, interpreters, and supporters, they are the heart of what we do.
Our Agriculture, Community Development and Health Care programs mean extra income and savings of more than $60 million annually for the poorest Guatemalans.
