OUR MISSION IS TO PROMOTE HUMAN ADVANCEMENT BY ENGAGING PEOPLE WITH LOW RESOURCES IN RURAL GUATEMALA THROUGH HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES TO EFFECT LONG TERM CHANGE IN FAMILIES AND ENTIRE COMMUNITIES.
People living in rural villages in Guatemala struggle against extreme poverty, malnutrition, discrimination and environmental degradation. But at the same time they are being enveloped by the encroaching forces of globalization and technology.
We are breaking the vicious cycle of poverty by working hand-in-hand with the indigenous Mayas in San Martin, Jilotepeque. By placing a great emphasis on sustainability, we first invest in the people. Focusing on health and education, we assist them in developing, implementing, and monitoring their own projects while building their capacity to make long term change.
