We are an non-governmental organisation in Guatemala welcoming international interns, which is part of how we finance the services we provide to primarily very low income indigenous​ ​women. We have a policy to offer care to all women who come to us. This means that we do not turn away​ ​a​ ​client,​ ​even​ ​if​ ​they​ ​do​ ​not​ ​have​ ​the​ ​money​ ​for​ ​their​ ​appointment.


Our intern program has been functioning for almost twenty years and we have given over 100 students​ ​an​ ​insight​ ​into​ ​midwifery​ ​and women's healthcare​ ​within​ ​the​ ​guatemalan​ ​culture.
