Almost ready to start the project!

We are very happy to announce that due to on offline donation this project is almost funded and ready to start!

We are now working with Alfredo and Irene Salazar from Asociacion Guatemalteca para el Sindrome de Down to prepare to start the project as soon as possible.

We can't wait for activities to begin and to see the positive impact it will have on children with Down syndrome in Guatemala.

Thank you for your support to make this project happen! We will keep you updated with regular reports on how your money is being spent and the change it is making in Guatemala.

Over halfway to our fundraising goal!

We have raised a fantastic 2,038, over half of our fundraising goal. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! We are very exciting to be getting closer to starting this project and supporting parents of children with Down syndrome in Guatemala. We will be working with Asociacion Guatemalteca para el Sindrome de Down, a dedicated organisation based in Guatemala City. The organisation was founded in 2005 by Alfredo and Irene Salazar, after their son was born with Down syndrome. They sold their family home and used the funds to open a school providing support, education, therapies for children with Down syndrome in Guatemala. If you haven't already, please consider donating again or sharing the project with your friends and family to help us reach our target and get the project started.

This Campaign Ends - But Our Work Continues!

We have decided to end this fundraising campaign, having raised a fantastic £3,735! We have decided to focus on one Global Support campaign to fund our work in countries around the world. Thank you to everyone who has donated!

We will continue our important work in Africa and other countries around the world that need support. Earlier this month we spent a week in Nigeria training people to facilitate self-advocacy groups for people with Down syndrome.

If you would like to continue supporting our work, please click on the links below. You can help with:

  • Our project supporting parents of children with Down syndrome in Guatemala;
  • Our Global Support campaign, providing support to people with Down syndrome worldwide.

Thanks again to everyone who donated or fundraised for this campaign. Your support has made an enormous difference to the lives of people with Down syndrome in Africa.
