Accion Humana ONG

Non profit organization
(+502) 5478-5998

Acción Humana NGO was born from the commitment of a group of young entrepreneurs who believe that human beings, through their will, can be responsible and participate in achieving their own goals and objectives, but that in most cases they do not have the economic tools or the opportunities to access educational programs that facilitate the processes of starting ideas, developing skills, acquiring knowledge and much less creating the necessary networking to make their own dreams come true.

The group of young entrepreneurs, seeing the natural and human potential that Guatemala has in each region of the country, decided to form a Non-Profit and Non-Governmental Organization that develops programs, projects and plans that serve to transform the lives of people living at risk. violence and socially disadvantaged factors, promoting human development activities that serve as a means of assistance for self-sustaining projects within local communities.
