Communities and the municipality of Mataquescuintla in the Jalapa department of Guatemala, presented an award to Vidalina Morales for ADES’s struggle against metallic mining exploration in Cabañas.

ADES shared the annual report on Human Rights with community leaders and governmental institutions in Cabañas.

Santa Marta, in Victoria, Cabañas presented its organizing history in the book “Where the Torogoz Nests.” The material systematizes the organizing experience and consciousness raising in the community from the period of 1975-1992.

ADES Santa Marta launched an Advanced Leadership Development School with more than 20 young people from Victoria and Guacotecti in Cabañas and Suchitoto in Cuscatlán. All of the young people have participated in basic leadership processes before, but this workshop is specifically for developing a more advanced leadership level.
