Project Report | December 18, 2020
This final report highlights the results and lessons learned from Guatemala's Youth and Gender Justice Project.
Since 2016, USAID/Guatemala’s Youth and Gender Justice Project (YGJP) has focused on strengthening the government’s and civil society’s capacity to provide justice and related services to juvenile offenders, victims of gender-based violence (GBV), and victims of trafficking in persons (TIP). This final report examines and presents highlighted results, lessons learned, and key recommendations from the dedicated efforts of this activity over the past four and a half years. It further examines how these efforts strengthened Guatemala’s institutional and civil society response capacities to guarantee justice through efficient models and upgraded systems.
