Central America is home to more than 34 million people spanning across seven countries including Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama. For years the region has been plagued by drought, conflict, poverty, high unemployment, human rights violations, natural disasters, and unstable governments.
In fact, half of Central America’s population lives below the poverty line.
Gangs and other criminal groups specifically target children in Central America, causing hundreds of thousands of children to flee as refugees.
Severe droughts in the region have impacted the lives of farmers, limiting their income and access to food.
The Global Impact Central America Fund brings together three of the most respected, best-in-the-business international organizations focused on helping those in Central America.
Through this fund, you will join with millions of people to change the world by helping to provide refugee support, food distribution, protection from violence and exploitation, job training, youth empowerment, microfinance and entrepreneurship, and a host of other services to those in need in Central America.
Your contributions go directly to supporting real and meaningful work to improve the lives of those living in Central America.
