Units2
Description

This course is designed to provide theoretical and practical knowledge about the nature of the nonprofit sector in Guatemala, a post-conflict society and a developing country. In particular, we will explore the dynamic role of human service agencies – both INGOs (internationally operated nonprofits) and Guatemala-based nonprofits in peace-building. Students will be introduced to the challenges these nonprofits face serving multi-cultural populations within a country still troubled by serious violence.
