Latin America is the world´s region with the highest income inequality according to the 2019 Human Development Report of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), released in December.
The report indicated the richest 10% in Latin America concentrates a larger share of income than in any other region (37%). And vice versa: the poorest 40% receive the smallest share (13%).
Concerned about the inequality present in the region and the great disparity in Latin America, we have been working for more than …… years in the field, strengthening and collaborating so that girls, boys, men and women can overcome this problem and have opportunities where they can develop their skills and abilities.
We promote and protect the rights of girls, boys, women and men living in economic poverty, in one of the most unequal regions of the planet.
