Empowering Indigenous Guatemalan Women and Girls Through Education
The Kateri Education Fund's goal is to annually sponsor the education of twenty young Indigenous women, so that they can continue their studies beyond elementary school. This program gives the students an opportunity to further their education successfully with the help of its scholarship, writing, and internship components.
Mission: Guatemala provides leadership opportunities, skills training, support services and microfinance loans to the women in two groups - one in Santa Clara la Laguna, Solola and one in Chumanzana, Chichicastenago, Quiche. It facilitates self-initiated projects developed from needs assessment conducted by the Kateri Tekakwitha Fund staff.
