Indigenous women in Guatemala have limited access to participation in the country’s civic life. MolojKino’jib’alMayib’ Ixoqib’ (MOLOJ) works to raise awareness about the importance of including indigenous women in leadership positions within local and national governments, as well as in civil society organizations. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen governance in Guatemala. MOLOJ’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.
