The Nutritional School Lunch Program Continues!

Thanks to the support of our caring donors, Pueblo a Pueblo’s nutritional school lunch program continues to strengthen in Santiago Atitlán.  Our organization has been providing hot, nutritional lunches for the Panabaj school children all year.  Similarly, since tropical storm Agatha we have provided a healthy snack to the children at Chukumuk as well.  With access to food remaining the leading cause of malnutrition in Guatemala, Pueblo a Pueblo will continue to make great strides in its mission of empowering the indigenous community to improve their own lives.  The second successful harvest of vegetables from our Organic School Garden gives hope for us all that one day the community will be more self-sufficient and that food shortages will be a fading memory.  Until that day comes, however, the children will continue to depend on the foundation built by donors like you who see their potential.  Pueblo a Pueblo and the children thank you for your generosity!
