Fundazucar trains community leaders in responsible citizenship and leadership
In 2021, the Sugar Foundation -Fundazucar- trained 1,562 community leaders from 143 communities in responsible citizenship and leadership participation to execute the Comprehensive Community Development Plans -CCDP- in the short and long term.
The participating leaders prepared and validated the Annual Operating Plan -AOP- 2022 for their communities, it is worth mentioning that the AOPs of the recent year were executed and fulfilled as planned.
Within the Comprehensive Community Development Plans, actions for the prevention and mitigation of COVID-19 are contemplated, so in 2021, 664 basic sanitation sessions were carried out in communities on the South of Guatemala.
Fundazucar has developed 298 CCDP on the South of the country and 108 in the highlands: in Cubulco and Rabinal, Baja Verapaz and Cunén and Nebaj, Quiché.
Leadership and local development
Since 1997, Fundazucar has promoted citizen participation, leadership, and decision-making of the Community Development Councils —Cocode- so that they can identify the main needs of the community and thus formulate and execute Comprehensive Community Development Plans -CCDP-.
In the development plan, the community define and prioritize the projects, as well as the times to carry out their execution. Fundazucar trains on laws, processes and requirements; and provides technical assistance so that the community can manage actions for their benefit with a long-term vision.
