Summary

Guatemala is the third poorest country in Latin America, with more than 50% of the population living in poverty. Shelter is a basic human need that everyone deserves. Nuestros Ahijados aims to strengthen communities in rural Guatemala by building lasting, healthy homes, allowing families to live in health and safety.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Over 50% of Guatemalan families live in acute poverty. Many of these families are often without basic shelter to keep them dry, safe, and warm. They live in makeshift homes that are constructed of little more than cornstalk or plastic walls with dirt floors. Inadequate housing crushes hope, causes health problems, and works against family unity.

How will this project solve this problem?

We concentrate our efforts on providing families in dire need with secure housing that will protect them from health and security risks. Nuestros Ahijados recognizes that secure homes and thriving communities begin with improving immediate living situations and quality of life.

Potential Long Term Impact

We work with the poorest of Guatemalan families to build houses, making them strong, safe, and welcoming places where families are able to thrive. Practical, and affordable to maintain, these homes become the foundation for developing communities across Guatemala.
