Expression. Participation. Transformation.


Voces de Cambio (Voices of Change) is a program for teenage girls in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, that fosters intellectual and creative growth, self-confidence, and leadership. Through creative expression, principally writing and photography, Voces de Cambio believes that young women can begin to challenge deeply ingrained and destructive social norms that preclude them from contributing to the development of a just and democratic society.

Voces de Cambio was born out of the necessity to provide a safe space for Guatemalan girls to begin to imagine a new role for themselves in their homes, schools, and communities. Using writing and photography, Voces de Cambio encourages girls to construct a new “social narrative”, one in which they occupy an equal and authentic voice.
