Empowering women through sustainable livelihoods

Posted on Updated on


The Association of Women of the Highlands (Asociaciõn de Mujeres del Altiplano, AMA) is an inspiring example for a federation driven by women supporting other women to create sustainable livelihoods. What makes AMA so special is that their work is deeply rooted in the local cultural and natural setting and is based on existing knowledge. AMA encourages works with 13 Mayan communities on identifying sustainable livelihoods that impact individual and community wellbeing at large in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala’s second largest city. Learn more about AMA’s inspiring work in the recent “Our World web magazine” initiated and driven by the United Nations University (UNU) here.
