Deputy Chief of Mission David Hodge visited the El Mezquital colony in Villa Nueva to learn about the projects they carry out in the USAID Guatemala and U.S. Department of State: Bureau of Intl. Narcotics & Law Enforcement (INL) GT with the support of Convivimos to strengthen citizen security.
Schools are strong allies with whom we develop projects focused on offering more opportunities for young people. We also strengthen police capabilities and bring them closer to their community as part of our support to achieve security and prosperity goals. We work in cooperation with the Government of Guatemala and the Municipality of Villa Nueva to prevent and reduce violence in areas at risk such as El Mezquital.
