NGO Networks and Perspectives on Child Migration:  Examining Perceptions of Root Causes

The NGO Networks group will work to explore occupational perspectives on child migration and its causes drawing from among diverse sectors of Guatemalan society.  The project will be developed in collaboration with local NGOs to investigate views of precipitating factors for the migration of Guatemalan children, with particular focus on programming strategies to improve educational and future employment opportunities.  The NGO Networks group will explore legal and policy approaches to migration used within Guatemala.  By bringing together community, NGO, and legal perspectives, the group will consider human rights and occupational outcomes for Guatemalan migrant children.
