Equality for Women and Girls

Out of the Darkness – COINCIDIR

For Damaris Lopez, going to school was the worst part of her day. A shy girl by nature, she was relentlessly bullied and eventually dropped out. She’s not alone – over two million in Guatemala do not attend school, mostly girls. Thankfully, COINCIDIR is there, an organization that works locally to empower young girls and get them invested in their own education. COINCIDIR tackles the root problems of Guatemala’s dropout rate by focusing on women who feel excluded and by educating on the topics of reproductive health and financial independence.
