Latin America and the Caribbean
In the region of Latin America and the Caribbean, opportunities for social advocacy are limited, and pollution and the exploitation of natural resources threaten the biological diversity of the continent. Violence, corruption and organised crime also cause problems.
FCA’s most important operating area in the Latin American region is Haiti, the poorest state in the Western Hemisphere. In Central America we were supporting women’s livelihoods and female entrepreneurship in Guatemala until the end of 2016, through the funding of Women’s Bank.
Our programmes in Haiti focus on school rebuilding, and generally in the region on the development of sustainable agriculture, education directed particularly at women and the youth, and the communities’ chances to take part in decision-making.
Finn Church Aid has an office in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
