CECI-Guatemala opened offices in the country in 1990. We engage in development and support projects, particularly with indigenous populations, who make up over 60% of the population of Guatemala. Specifically, we promote the industries of community tourism, sustainable economic development and fair trade, as well as the solidarity economy. Our support for the fair trade coffee industry is as promising as ever in this regard. With the growing environmental concerns, CECI-Guatemala is also helping to make drinking water more accessible and to improve waste management in the Lake Atitlan region.

CECI-Guatemala also works with populations affected by natural disasters, such as frequent flooding, to raise community awareness about risk and disasters.
