Guatemala

Ahikam is a home founded in the city of Poptun, Guatemala in 2010 for girls who are in trouble. Most of the girls have been molested, or their sisters have. Many of the girls have been out on the streets, or Ahikam has intervened to keep them for ending up there. Their caretakers have died, abandoned them, or turned on them. Around 15% of these girls are pregnant when they arrive at Ahikam. The average age of the girls is 13 years old.
