Solidarity Projects

The Guatemala Accompaniment Project (G.A.P.) facilitates relationships between communities of refugees and displaced in Guatemala and communities in the U.S. willing to sponsor persons to serve as accompaniers. There are currently 15 sponsoring communities in the U.S. and 14 sister community relationships in Guatemala. The goals are to provide a measure of security against human rights violations and to build long-term relationships of mutual support.

Contact: Guatemala Accompaniment Project, gap@nisgua.org, www.nisgua.org. G.A.P. is a project of the Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala (NISGUA), formed in 1981 in response to the need for national coordination voiced by Guatemalan activists in the U.S.
