Asociación Juvenil de Mujeres Activa


In Guatemala, nearly 44 per cent of young women become mothers before the age of 20, with that proportion rising among indigenous communities. Asociacion Juvenil de Mujeres Activa (AMA) seeks to promote the sexual and reproductive rights of young women in Guatemala’s Petén region in order to bring down the numbers of unplanned pregnancies in the region, and address their root causes.
