Mission Statement


Empowering Guatemalan Women and Communities

Description


The mission of our organization, UPAVIM, is to empower the women of our community, giving them an opportunity to improve the quality of life, for themselves and for their families. We pursue this mission by giving them access to education, employment opportunities, daycare services for their children, health care services, and programs for personal and professional development. UPAVIM is a grassroots organization that has over 20 years of experience in the development of a variety of programs for the collective benefit of the population of La Esperanza, a marginalized area of Guatemala City. Our organization has worked arduously to improve the situation of poor women and their families, and has become a beacon of opportunity and hope in this community.
