Indigenous leaders in Guatemala support returning migrants
The USAID-funded Tejiendo Paz (Peacebuilding) project works in the Western Highlands of Guatemala to support peace initiatives. Delia Catú, a Maya Kaqchikel woman, works for Association Pop Noj to help youth reintegrate into their communities of origin after trying to migrate abroad. Delia discusses the factors that determine if people will stay in their communities, such as being able to depend on basic services.
Tejiendo Paz works with indigenous leaders like Delia to support the topics they prioritize in their own communities and build their capacity to collectively address the issues.
