Inclusion in any society is fundamental so that people can live an integral life.
This segment of the population does not normally have access to job opportunities, suffer from lack of integration in society, and have difficulty in economic independence and personal empowerment.
Guatemala Inclusiva was created with the purpose or including people with diverse abilities to the work environment.
Employment inclusion is an essential step towards an independent life for these young people and gives them an opportunity to develop their skills and demonstrate their abilities.
Developing at a work level allows obtaining a salary and also the recognition of social value by family and the rest of citizens. It also provides the opportunity to improve their social skills, their autonomy and their quality of life.
Help us to break the labor barrier of people with diverse abilities making your donation TODAY!
PROBLEM: Lack of opportunities.
In Guatemala, 10.2% of the population has some type of disability, that is, close to 1.6 million people. Of them, only 0.04% have a job!!
Our project came up as a symbol for “Catching the “Dreams” of many: That of young people to have a decent job and integrate into society in the workplace. That of their relatives who want to see them as independent beings and with the opportunity to improve their future. And, ours to form a conscious and inclusive society where, each passing day, respect and the value of diversity grows for everyone to have the same rights and opportunities.
We provide opportunities through a job carried out in conjunction with occupational-technical training (customer service, basic culinary skills, basic barista skills, concierge, art classes, among others), that takes place in the facilities of Café Consciente – Food With Meaning, a place that was created to support labor inclusion. Do you also dream of an inclusive world? We invite you to actively participate in leaving your positive mark.

HOW THE FUNDS WILL BE USED
Each donation of $ 6 is equivalent to 1 hour of theory and practice training, services of the personnel involved in the training, and economic compensation to the person with diverse abilities.
The more hours you donate, the more people you can help improve their quality of life.
