Empower women and girls in Guatemala.


Bring grassroots action to life in Guatemala.

When women have the power to make decisions about their own health, the benefits are enormous. Gaining access to services is a critical first step, but they also need the knowledge and tools to make good decisions and the skills to effectively advocate for their rights.

In Guatemala, only 1 in 3 women have access to family planning services. Local organizations are working hard to change this, and with training from CAI, are more equipped to transform women as leaders in their own lives. 

Young women leaders are applying their knowledge in the field with immediate benefits:

  • A creative and inclusive shift in recruitment, education and organizing strategies.
  • An integration of dialogue, arts and cultural-based approaches to engage new members.
  • The breaking through of convention and drawing out of the unique strengths of each member.
  • The analysis of gender inequality root causes.
  • The development of strategic outreach campaigns through radio dramas, compelling visuals and community workshops.
"Anytime that I'm at a loss as to how to best present my work, the [CAI] handbook guides me in best practices."
