ACTing together for greater cooperation in Guatemala
From 18-21 April, six European ecumenical agencies will start a new journey in our cooperation model in Guatemala.
Christian Aid, ICCO, Bread for the World, Norwegian Church Aid, Church of Sweden and LWF launch the joint programme ‘ACTing Together/JOTAY’ in Guatemala. Jotay is a Mayan kaqchikel word that means ‘sprout’.
The joint programme will focus on gender justice, sustainable management of natural resources and Rule of Law. All of them are fundamental in the Guatemalan context as injustice and violence affect millions of indigenous people.
The launch includes meeting with the embassies of UK, Germany and Sweden, church leaders and government institutions, and a public debate on new strategies for the accompaniment to civil society in Guatemala.
ACTing Together/JOTAY is an important part of the Christian Aid Global Partnership perspective.
