Summary

During the year, we aim to provide food parcels or trees to the elderly members of the community to help suplement their diets or allow them to grow their own firewood. We also aim to provide them with medicinal plants.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The elderly are a huge part of family life in Guatemala. They live with the family, under one small house and they help with the grandchildren, cooking, cleaning, working, they do everything! But when it comes to dinner time their isn't always enough food for the grandparents. They are often malnurished as they are forced to wait until there is more food to eat, if more food comes.

How will this project solve this problem?

By providing trees for them to grow, this removes the necesity to walk miles to find firewood. The medicinal plants help when usual medicine is unaffordable for day to day ailments and the food we give out helps to supplement what little food is available.

Potential Long Term Impact

With the elderly running the home the children can go to school and leave the chores to them, allowing them to get a formal, vital education and develop their family out of poverty. The parents can leave the house and childcare in their hands to go out to work and earn more money for the family.
