Community Development

We seek to motivate and prepare children for leadership roles in the community. We emphasize teaching values that will instill self esteem, self reliance, teamwork, good citizenship, as well as cooperative, moral, social, and gender principles. Your contribution will not only help to support specialized instructors for seminars and workshops geared towards our young people, but provide needed supplies.

Health & nutrition

Our aim is to counteract pervasive malnutrition that is rampant in the inhabitants of the Baja Verapaz region. With your support, we are able to prepare a very nutritious drink called atole for our younger patrons on-site. $360 per year, or $180 every six months, ensures that a child will have a nutritious lunch every day; that's a monthly contribution of only $30 a month. With $42 you can provide a nutritious breakfast for a child for 6 months, which is a monthly contribution of only $7.

Education

Our main goal is to provide the student community in our area with school supplies, and ultimately help them develop the ability to achieve academic excellence. Many of these children do not have internet access at their homes, so we offer this service in our library as an alternative. We are aware that internet access is needed for the students to complete homework assignments that are well researched, and has current information. It is important to have the necessary materials and a space where students can comfortably read, write, and do the appropriate research to turn in quality schoolwork as required by their teachers. Your financial contribution helps to provide the internet, obtain necessary materials, as well as experienced staff who offer tutorials. However, school supplies are always needed to supply the lists requested by schools. A backpack with school supplies can change the fate of a child.

Reading

The purpose of starting our community work has been to develop the different abilities of children and young students, specifically through reading. We utilize an active method of reading in order to develop critical thinking in each reader. Our continuously growing book club needs new books, and our library more shelves, efficient spaces and the personnel to help our kids. With your contribution, you are helping us to maintain the resources in the library as well as the necessary personnel to perform intelligent reading comprehension sessions.
