Our Vision

We envision that the girls supported by Task-Tarea will break the cycle of poverty, focused first on their families, second on the social and economic well-being of their communities, and ultimately as leaders and mentors to empower future generations.

Our Mission

Task-Tarea is a U.S. – based charity whose mission is to break the cycle of poverty in the Maya villages of Guatemala through education empowerment.
