Our Mission: WINGS creates opportunities for Guatemalan families to improve their lives through family planning education and access to reproductive health services.
Vision: a Guatemala where every person of or nearing reproductive age:
-Has pertinent knowledge and complete access to reproductive health and family planning services;
-Is free from cultural or religious constraints to use family planning methods;
-Is able to use family planning methods safely and healthily;
-Can openly and comfortably discuss reproductive issues with their partners and/or parents; and
-Expects access to family planning and reproductive health services to be the “norm” in Guatemala.
WINGS works closely with Guatemalan NGOs and governmental health centers, conducting outreach in rural communities, subsidizing the cost of birth control methods, providing cervical cancer screenings, and holding seminars on reproductive health to rural, poor, and indigenous Guatemalans.
