Project Description

Guatemalan returnees often face pressure to re-migrate to the U.S. to seek better economic opportunities or to flee violence. Asociación de Retornados Guatemaltecos (ARG) works to re-integrate returnees back into Guatemalan society by connecting them with potential employers, vocational training opportunities, government services and to a network of returnees who have built new lives for themselves in Guatemala. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunities in Guatemala. ARG’s activities promote alternatives to migration by creating economic opportunities and promoting greater integration into their home communities.

This grant is part of the IAF’s efforts to address the root causes of irregular migration in Central America.
