Category: News,


The 2018 Guatemalan census shows the reality of the precarious conditions in which a large part of the rural Guatemalan population lives.

In a joint effort to bring solutions, Progreso and Rotary Guatemala respectively, recently signed cooperation alliances with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) to implement housing, drinking water and wastewater treatment solutions through USAID´s Communities Leading Development (CLD) Project for families living in vulnerable communities of Quetzaltenango, Totonicapán, Huehuetenango, San Marcos, and Quiché.

Progreso is a Guatemalan company, dedicated to the production and marketing of cement, concrete, lime and other products and services for construction with social and environmental responsibility. Rotary Guatemala brings together members who are committed to assist with the most important humanitarian challenges in the country.

The alliances were signed under shared valued interests related to improving the quality of housing, and infrastructure, as well as water and wastewater solutions in the poorest households in Guatemala. The signed alliances will facilitate coordination of actions that have an impact in the short, medium, and long term and that, mainly, allow the generation of sustainable solutions in quality of life in CLD communities.
