The mission of Women Work Together is to unlock the potential of Mayan girls to stay in school and direct their own futures. Our underlying vision is to end poverty in Guatemala one girl at a time.
Our Guiding Principles
Women Work Together strives to promote positive systemic change from the ground up, led by and for the local community. We support women and girls in highland Guatemala in their efforts toward gender equality by focusing on young teen girls’ leadership and access to education.
Our participatory programs reflect and advance local goals for girls and women to have full access to education, economic opportunity and community engagement.
The research is clear: educating a girl results in improved income, smaller families, better health, better gender relations, and more community involvement. Significantly, educated women send their daughters and sons to school.
