The association Ixmucané in the Guatemalan department Huehuetenango is a non-governmental non-profit organisation that was founded in 2000. The work is guided by a set of values and principles based on social solidarity as a reference point to participate in building a more democratic society. The philosophy of the work is founded on respect for differences and cultural diversity, responsibility, transparency and honesty, collective work and cooperation.

We are a non-governmental organisation dedicated to the integral education of Mayan women and other women who are excluded from the different regions and linguistic communities of Huehuetenango. We provide the knowledge and tools necessary to construct an integral human development, through formal and informal educational processes.

Through comprehensive education Ixmucané contributes to women’s critical thinking, to their reflection and participation, empowering them to be part of development processes both locally and in the wider Guatemalan society.
