Mission & Vision: 
The organisation’s mission is to consolidate a dialogue and coordination space that promotes equitable and sustainable development and helps strengthen peace and democracy, through participation and advocacy in policy-making. CONGCOOP emerged in late 1992 as an alliance of civil society actors with the shared goal to support the collective and organized return of refugees within the framework of a reintegration process to Guatemalan society, therefore addressing the urgent need to begin building a state of law in the country. Since the signing of the Peace Accords in 1996, CONGCOOP has focused its activities towards fulfilling its comprehensive implementation, with a special focus on the subjects CONGCOOP addresses in its work. We are a coordination of NGOs and cooperatives, gaining strength from its internal articulation as a social actor, which promotes and coordinates development proposals to address equality and justice; and which participates in policy-making as an advocate in the framework of building a country that is multi-ethnic, multicultural and multilingual with gender equity and respect of the environment.
