In Guatemala, AFSC works to build peace in Guatemala City neighborhoods. Through partnerships with schools, universities, community-based organizations, and public institutions, we are building an urban peace network focused on youth that encourages young people and adults to work together to reduce violence in their communities.

In 10 of the city´s neighborhoods, youth have organized Local Peace Networks, which regularly meet to build understanding among neighbors and plan activities to promote nonviolence.

Who we are

AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
