We have schools and community projects in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Peru and they are running exceptionally well. However, to ease the burden of shared and overcrowded classrooms in all our countries we want to invest in quality infrastructure that will last for years to come. This can only be achieved if we can raise sufficient funds, and of course if you donate, you are welcome to come and get your hands dirty!
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Over nine million children under five in Latin America suffer from chronic malnutrition, this peaking in Guatemala with more than half the children there suffering. Plus, 23 million children between the ages of 4 and 17 not in any education

Potential Long Term Impact
We are creating a 25-year plan to empower a community to bring itself out of poverty through education and nutrition using sustainable methods. We have been working closely with 11 communities for ten years (two of which are in Guatemala) and have educated over 3,000 children opening up better job opportunities for each one and breaking the cycle of poverty. Once we know the 25-year plan is successful it will be able to be replicated around the globe in any community that needs it.
