TECHO is an organization present in 19 Latin American countries, which seeks to overcome the situation of poverty that millions of people live in overcrowded and under resourced settlements, through the joint action of its inhabitants and volunteers.
For over 36 years, Potter's House has walked alongside individuals, families and communities living in poverty and extreme poverty to develop long-term relationships and provide opportunities for holistic development through our 5 programs: Family Development, Education, Health and Nutrition, Microenterprise and Community Development.
From physical and mental transformation to spiritual transformation, we want to empower people in poverty throughout Guatemala and make significant changes in their lives and communities.
Like many other Latin American countries that share the Pacific and Caribbean coastline, Guatemala is experiencing a crisis of development and overfishing, exacerbated by the lack of opportunities, income alternatives and the scarcity of scientific knowledge about the true state of the different fishery resource populations, mainly chondrichthyans. Faced with this situation, Mundo Azul Foundation has initiated its efforts to generate scientific information that advances the level of knowledge about sharks, rays and other fisheries.
