FUDI foundation provides training programs to poor people in rural areas so that they can generate sustainable income. The aim of the program is to help young indigenous women to develop entrepreneurial skills in order to enter the labor markets. These beneficiaries are taking workshops in bakery, embroidery, and handicraft so they can sell their creations in the Guatemala market. Funds were used to buy kitchen and computer equipment.
ACOE (Asociacion para la Cooperacion Educativa) promotes training programs for rural and marginal urban young women in the Aldea Santa Catarina Bobadilla, in the Department of Sacatepequez. The project seeks to strengthen the entrepreneurial skills of indigenous women in extreme poverty, to improve their income by organizing cooking classes and training in business management. Kitchen equipment will be purchased.
