Standing Together: Courage Amidst Crisis

During the crises of 2020, indigenous women leaders stood up to defend their rights and advocate for their communities. Please help WJI raise $100,000 by the end of the year, so we can continue to support courageous women leaders as they work to build a more equitable Guatemala.

I am a woman who is no longer afraid to confront the challenges in my life, in my family, and even in my community. I have discovered myself and know that I have value.
