ATC engages local communities and empowers women to improve their own lives. They do this work on a shoe string and yet have had a tremendous impact. When women's lives improve so do the lives of their children; the entire community benefits for generations to come. I can't think of a better way to invest my resources. In Guatemala a little goes a very long way.
