Women’s International Network for Guatemalan Solutions (WINGS) is a Guatemala-based NGO creating opportunities for Guatemalan families to improve their lives by providing them with family planning education and access to reproductive health services. Summit’s support began in 2010 and has focused on WINGS’ outreach to young people, particularly girls, in the underserved northern Guatemalan department of Alta Verapaz and more recently, Sacatepéquez. WINGS’ trained leaders provide basic sexual information to not-in-school girls and young women and men in their communities and offer referrals to WINGS’ 45 volunteer family planning promoters, two mobile units, and two youth clinics.
