Creative Learning has been awarded a grant by State Department to develop the Guatemala Reconciliation and Reparations Program (GRRP). This 15-month project will establish a Working Group with members of the Government of Guatemala, civil society organizations, and victim’s organizations, working together to channel information into formal processes of investigation and reparations, addressing the painful issue of human rights violations in the 36 year internal conflict. Recognizing the extent of abuses under military and non democratic governments is a necessary step in the process of national reconciliation. The GRRP will develop the capacity of local Guatemalan institutions to organize evidence obtained from exhumations and victims’ testimonies, and the Working Group will prioritize issues and select communities for reconciliation activities.
