Challenges in Guatemala
- Social inequality is enourmous: 40% of the populations is indigenous and extremely disadvantaged.
- Guatemala is ranks ninth in the WorldRiskIndex. This calculates the risk of disaster as a consequence of extreme natural events and the societal vulnerability of a country. Guatemala is particularly at risk due to climate change and the very existence of its small farmers is under threat.
- The situation with regard to education is precarious: a mere 41.8% of children in our project areas attend compulsory preschool or kindergarten.
