cbc and the United Nations Population Fund, UNFPA, subscribed a collaboration memorandum in order to contribute to women, female teenagers and girls human rights in the municipalities of Tecpan and Santa Apolonia in the department in Chimaltenango.

For UNFPA Guatemala and cbc, signing this memorandum is an example of the possibility to establish alliances that allow contributions for human rights to reach sustainable growth, according to the national and international legal frameworks and to the United Nations Global Compact principles, of which cbc is part of.
