ECLA Alumna Founds Non-Profit Organization to Help Guatemalan Children

ECLA Alumna Founds Non-Profit Organization to Help Guatemalan ChildrenThree years ago, Fiamma Rupp-Gembs spent a year in Guatemala volunteering in the garbage dumps of Guatemala City.  In her time there, she recognized a gap in the assistance offered by existing aid programmes in the country: she wished that an organization would be created that would involve more intercultural exchange and communication.  A year later, she founded her own aid programme.  Lead by her “desire to create a new system for aid organizations which would foster development but at the same time would not create new dependence,” she now heads “Sichere Perspektiven – Secure Perspectives e.V.”, called “Seguras Perspectivas” in its Guatemalan seat.
