Why Guatemala?

All profits from the summit will be donated to support local community programs in San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala

  • Guatemala has one of the highest rates of chronic malnutrition in the world, and the highest rate of malnutrition in Latin America.
  • Seven out of ten children in Indigenous communities in Guatemala suffer from malnutrition.
  • Forty percent of San Marcos natives are living on less than $2 per day per household, according to the Guatemalan Ministry of Agriculture, and that poverty permeates every aspect of their lives, from their physical stature, to their chances for employment, to high rates of unwanted pregnancy, to poor dental health.
  • Rural Guatemalans need your help to break the cycle of poverty and raise their own standard of living.
