Fundación Esquipulas para la Integración Centroamericana is a civil society organization. It is private, non-profit, non-partisan and with social projection purposes. It acquires its name and is inspired by the Peace Accords in Central America, Esquipulas I and II, which contributed to the democratic institutionalization, demobilization in Nicaragua and the signing of Peace in El Salvador and Guatemala, avoiding a generalization of the conflict that it already affected Honduras and, to a lesser extent, Costa Rica.
These agreements allowed for political stability for economic growth never before experienced by the region and also meant the modern political impulse of the Central American integration process, giving way to all the current institutions. However, the political and social agenda in the region is still pending and therefore FUNDAESQ is established to contribute with all the challenges that still have to be achieved in the region.
Fundación Esquipulas is considered a Center of Thought and action that seeks to contribute to the construction of a culture of peace in a paradigm of democratic security, to the strengthening of democracy, in the search of establishing a right state for all, also betting on integration as an instrument to achieve sustainable development in Central America. Its mission is carried out through strategic actions, the generation of analysis and discussion, the creation of plural spaces for dialogue, proposal proposals, political formation, as well as citizen bonding and political advocacy.
For a peaceful, secure, democratic and equitable region that provides well-being to its people, they seek to contribute to the construction of a Central America developed and integrated according to its own destiny.
