Equality for Women and Girls

Let girls be girls – GoJoven Guatemala

Guatemala has an epidemic of underage pregnancy so severe that a quarter of all children are born to adolescent mothers. With this comes lack of education, economic limitation, and abuse. The solution lies with education and with GoJoven, an organization advocating for adolescent reproductive health. They use grassroots organizing to advocate for changes to Guatemala’s child marriage laws and to educate youth about their sexual rights.
