World Renew has been working in Guatemala since 1976.
For Guatemala, the road to independence and transparent democracy has not been without its fair share of problems. After ten years of successful social reforms and democracy, Guatemala fell into turmoil after a U.S.-backed coup in 1954. A civil war started in 1960 and left 36 years of conflict and over 200,000 dead. Peace finally came in 1996 and Guatemala is making political strides to end the violence, corruption, and poverty that has so affected the lives of its people.
