Finding Freedom through Friendship, Inc., was established in 2009 to meet the needs of widows and their children in the villages of northwestern Guatemala. The chronic stress of poverty, illiteracy and social stigmas have created an acute need for support services for indigenous women in the highlands of this Central American country.
Our goal is to assist participants accepted into Finding Freedom through Friendship with nutrition, economic empowerment, education of their children and basic health care needs. By networking with long-term volunteers in rural Guatemala, we strengthen our ability to make a significant and long-lasting difference in the lives of women who we identify as having critical domestic issues.
The women of Guatemala are resilient. Through the sharing of resources, knowledge and friendship, Finding Freedom through Friendship travels with them in their journey to self-reliance.
