Nuestros Ahijados is dedicated to "breaking the chains of poverty through education and formation." This project aims to build futures by providing an education for over 400 orphaned, abandoned, and poverty-stricken children in Guatemala.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
More than 50% of Guatemalans live in poverty, surviving and supporting a family on less than $2 per day. Children are the most affected, with almost 75% living this tragic reality. A lack of access to education is at the core of this problem, with poor and indigenous populations being particularly marginalized and deprived of opportunities for education and achievement.
How will this project solve this problem?
By providing healthcare, community outreach, legal assistance, and most importantly, access to education, Nuestros Ahijados takes a holistic approach to creating a better future for Guatemala's most vulnerable populations. With your support, these populations can attain the most fundamental requisite to overcoming poverty - an education. As a result, they can begin to dream of a better future. There is no limit to the change we can affect!
Potential Long Term Impact
By ensuring the health, safety, and education of over 5,000 orphaned, abandoned, and poverty-stricken children and their families, we're fighting poverty, changing lives, and providing Guatemala with a brighter future.
