32 Volcanes "Creating Community"

32 Volcanes is a Guatemalan non-profit that helps Maya communities fight childhood malnutrition and overcome structural inequality.

 50% of Guatemalan children suffer from chronic malnutrition. This is one of the six highest rates in the world, on par with Afghanistan and Yemen.

Coronavirus is deepening Guatemala’s malnutrition crisis. It has shut down much of Guatemala’s informal economy, causing precarious incomes to plummet and food prices to rise. 32 Volcanes is tackling this head-on.

 Your tax-deductible donation to our U.S. partner will go directly to deliver emergency nutrition supplements to hard-hit rural communities and provide seed capital for Maya communities to put their ancestral knowledge into practice with long-term food sovereignty projects.

Maya Mam community leaders like Doña Luisa are ready to go to work to raise nutritious crops, install clean water filters, and create sustainable change. They know what needs to be done and how to do it. They simply need capital.

 32 Volcanes (32V) has years of experience building sustainable food sovereignty Guatemala. 32V has been featured on several national news programs and in print media for its remarkable record of success, and more recently for its efficient responses to the Coronavirus crisis. Its founder, Dr Carmen Benítez, is an internationally-recognized expert on food sovereignty and public policy.

Foundation Todos Juntos 32V’s partner, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization registered in the U.S.
