32 Volcanes may be a new Guatemalan non-profit but they are well known to Techies Without Borders (TWB). 32 Volcanoes, formerly Asociación Pop Wuj, has participated in the CMES-Pi Project since 2018. 32 Volcanos continues to operate and partner with the guidance of Foundation Todos Juntos (FTJ), a Guatemala non-profit which aims to support public health projects. TWB came to know these organizations through our partnership with Timmy Global Health (TGH), a USA based non-profit. We provide CMES and CMES-Pi to all TGH partners in Guatemala, Santo Domingo and Ecuador.

Located in Quetzaltenango (Xela), Guatemala the 32 Volcanos team lead by the tireless, creative and undefeatable Dr. Carmencita de Alvarado support and deliver educational, health, nutrition, and environmental projects in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Driven by the social needs of the diverse communities the projects integrate all aspects of the communities’ life and health needs.

This new organization comes from the 26 years of experience of Dr. Carmen and Roney Alvarado and has been created not only to maintain and develop their above goals, but also to ensure that this experience becomes a path of mutual, integral development for the Guatemalan people.

“The volcanoes will be there when we are no longer here, and that is what we hope will happen with our work: that it will be a seed that will sprout in more worthy and just futures for all.” Dr. Carmen

Who Knew? A mountain range of 32 volcanoes crosses the entire Guatemalan territory.  The name of this organization refers to one of the most emblematic characteristics of their country. Several volcanos last erupted in the Holocene Period, but Fuego erupted recently in 2018.
