Marginalized communities in the Guatemala City metropolitan area have limited access to nutritional foods that support a healthy diet and lifestyle. Proyecto de Salud Sangre de Cristo (PSSC) works with schoolchildren, their parents and the broader community in San Pedro Ayampuc and Chinautla to encourage healthy eating and healthy practices. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen governance in Guatemala. PSSC’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
This grant is part of our broader initiative to support economic prosperity, democracy and governance consistent with the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
