Our story

In Guatemala, girls continue to be more frequent in sexual violence when their life plan is interrupted; Guatemala is one of the 6 countries. has indicated not wanting to be mothers. During 2018 there were 2,153 pregnancies in girls aged 10 to 14; 100% Of those cases  are sexual crimes and of this cases 89% belongs family relationships.

In Guatemala, access to justice is very precarious, it becomes more acute when women are rural, monolingual and indigenous, which is why, as an ASOGEN located in a department in Guatemala, it tries to fight so that women and especially girls have access to justice and full treatment.

Our goal is to help girls-adolescents who need a comprehensive treatment because of sexual violence, to accompany them legally so that they have access to justice, access to psychological therapies, medical attention, also have the opportunity to empower themselves in their rights as women , technical training so that they can learn some work for its sustainability, in the case of mothers-adolescent girls.

Annually ASOGEN needs around 50 thousand dollars to provide comprehensive care and empower adolescent girls:

  • With $ 140 we help an adolescent in a comprehensive way for a month (legal, medical, psychological and social care), include expenses of the professionals that accompany, some basic resources that they usually need (basic foods or personal hygiene products), transportation to attend their hearings, among other expenses.
  • With $ 50 you can help a girl-teenager to become empowered through workshops, talks and self-support groups, attending a minimum process of 6 months and with $ 100 support to stay in one-year empowerment courses .
  • With $ 50 you will sponsor a teenager to have her materials for 2 technical workshops, such as bakery, pastry, costume jewelry, etc.
  • With $ 30 a month financially helps a girl-adolescent mother to support and feed her baby. (purchase of diapers, milk, etc.)
  • With 120 $ grants to a teenager to access formal education for one year in a school or public national institute, with $ 500 you contribute to pay her studies for a year in a career of professional training in a private school.
  • With $ 5 you can support the payment of paperwork and legal proceedings for a teenage girl for a court hearing, for $ 25 support covering paperwork and legal proceedings for 5 hearing

Our campaign has the advantage that the collection is made by each person according to their possibilities, they can choose where they can help us, comprehensive care, access to justice, training-empowerment, scholarships, etc. You can donate from $ 5, $ 10, $ 25, $ 100, whatever is within your reach! and you change the life of a child-adolescent survivor of violence, you contribute to her recovery from the initial plan of life.
