Asogen – Guatemala
Every year, ASOGEN receives around 300 new cases of violence against adolescent girls and women both from the department of Chimaltenango and from Sacatepéquez (in addition to some 300 cases that are followed up from previous years).
With our recent Move92 grant, we paid the salary of a new lawyer to our team for a full year. Our team has expanded because our coverage area is expanding.
We have an office in the center of Chimaltenango, but as part of our expansion strategy, we opened an office in Antigua to cover all Sacatepéquez department. We also opened a new office in Antigua to attend the women in the municipia’s of Patricia, Zaragoza, Pathum in Chimaltenango and Jocotenango, Pastores and San Lucas in Sacatepéquez.
We want to be able to offer our services to women closer to where they live.
