Building a Home for the San Antonio Preschool
 
After operating a Preschool Nutrition Center in the small town of San Antonio Palopo, Guatemala since 2010, we need to establish a permanent building to house the over 50 preschoolers that rely on the center for daily nutrition and education. Currently the preschool operates in a temporary shelter which is dark, cramped, and not conducive to learning and growing. project reportread updates from the field
Save our Elderly & Kids in Crisis Feeding Center
 
We are at risk of losing our San Jorge Elderly & Kids in Critical Need Feeding Center. Nearly 60 elderly and 15 kids without primary caregivers rely on the center for daily nutritious meals in a safe, nurturing environment. Without this center, these elderly and children will become even more vulnerable to malnutrition and other health dangers. By gaining the building, we can continue our feeding programs and expand to include other educational and community development programs. project reportread updates from the field
