ICA started Guatemala in June 1978, in the village of San Miguel Conacaste, Sanarate. El Progreso was chosen as a pilot project on Human Development, being a part of ICA’s global program. The Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA), Guatemala was founded in January 1979 as a non profit Civilian Association.
We are a not-for-profit, multicultural and multidisciplinary organization formed by trainers, facilitators and advisers at the service of integral human development, in order to promote the development of their communities and organizations through participatory techniques of world class.
We believe in the value of the contribution of each individual to catalyze the collective creativity we believe that the best solutions are found within the communities themselves. Believe that wisdom can arise where it is not expected to come out; No one should be excluded. We believe that self-management is one path to sustainability.
