Project Description

Rural women in Guatemala are often excluded from civil society and lack opportunities to earn income. Fundación para el Desarrollo y Fortalecimiento de las Organizaciones de Base (FUNDEBASE) provides training and support to 25 rural women’s groups on how to engage effectively with their local governments and create income-generating opportunities. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen democratic governance in Guatemala. FUNDEBASE’s activities encourage civic participation to enable marginalized groups to propel their own development. This grant is part of our broader initiative to promote economic prosperity and democratic governance consistent with the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
