THE STORY:

Without knowledge of their reproductive rights, most Mayan girls will never have access to education, opportunity or equality.

Help us help them by donating:

  • $20: Gives 2 Mayan girls the knowledge to determine their reproductive choices
  • $50: Enables 1 female community leader to advocate for reproductive education and services
  • $100: Trains 2 local teachers to provide sex ed to Mayan girl
  • $150: Provides private counseling for 6 Mayan women and girls
  • $200: Covers rapid cervical cancer screenings for 7 Mayan women

There is a crisis in Guatemala that no one talks about: the invisibility of girls. Mayan girls lack access to culturally appropriate information and services that would help them determine their reproductive rights and improve their quality of life. 

The situation for girls in Guatemala:

  • 4.5 million Mayan Guatemalans live in poverty and more than 1 million live in extreme poverty, surviving on $1.25 a day.
  • 65.9% of indigenous children under age 5 are chronically malnourished which affects their physical and cognitive growth
  • Only 14% of Mayan girls in rural areas finish their primary education
  • Nearly 60% of indigenous girls and women 15 and older are illiterate
  • Maya women face a two-fold greater risk of dying during pregnancy or childbirth than their nonindigenous counterparts

Providing reproductive health education and services is fundamental to breaking the cycles of inequality and poverty that plague Guatemala. By empowering Mayan girls and women with the knowledge to exercise their reproductive rights – for example, deciding to delay childbearing at age 13 or speaking with peers about gender-based violence in the community – they will be able to continue and excel in school, improve their self-confidence, and access a greater range of socioeconomic opportunities that enable them to be self-sufficient and create brighter futures for themselves, their families, and their communities.
