Community involvement improves life in Guatemala City

Local peace network in Guatemala City

Women gathered around a table, in discussion

In El Mezquital, Guatemala City, women formed a local peace network to improve life in their community.

Living in the biggest settlement in Central America usually means living in dangerous conditions. This was the case for Virginia Davila and Maritza Rodas, members of one of the American Friends Service Committee’s local peace networks in El Mezquital, a neighborhood located south of Guatemala City.
