Early Intervention for 50 Children in Guatemala
 
In 2015 ADISA began an Early Intervention program to provide care for 25 infants between zero and three years old with various disabilities. Volunteers cared for all of the children and significant changes were observed in the lives of each infant and their families. Recently, the number of infants in our program has doubled and now we need to have a full-time teacher caring for the children through home visits and weekly group sessions of Early Intervention in coordination with the mothers. project reportread updates from the field
