I have been coming to Guatemala and taking note of Guatemalan affairs for 30 thirty years now since 1980. There are many excellent NGO (non-government organizations) in the country that are doing fine work for and with the most impoverished and disenfranchised of the population, which frequently are the Indigenous Maya who make up more than half the total population of the country. 500 years of colonization, has kept and continues to keep the people impoverished. The work of Wuqu Kawoq is truly unique in its mission and approach to meet the needs of the People on their own cultural and language level. How novel and caring to find such people. My granddaughter (indigenous from Okla/ Kans) had hoped to assist as a volunteer during our current time here (July~Oct.5, 2012), but it did not materialize.
Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
