Every day children walk around in Antigua Guatemala close to the park, close to the churches or sometimes in front of the schools. They are selling candies, the rest of the children who finish a day full of classes are anxious to get home take a shower, eat, rest and play videogames. Parents are thinking to take them to english, music, and sport classes. In the middle are worried to pay rent, food, security and all expenses in normail life.
But, what happened with the children who were selling candies outside the school. Do they have dreams? Do they have something to achieve in life? Do they love to sell candies to live?. The answer is hard to obtain because we are in our own problems to look around. Is very sad when this children grow up and become an horrible adult, they act with violence maybe for instinct.
We could change their life, we could change their future, but we didn't. Well, this is responsible of the parents, they had to provide all their needs and they didn't. How about if their suffer the same case, so they unconscious start a new circle of problems. The chain of poverty will never be broken.
In Asociación Nuestros Ahijados de Guatemala and The GOD's CHILD Project is part of the mission to help this children in the streets and orphans to improve their conditions of life. While they receive help and orientation to change their enviroment, we try to educate the rest of the family to support their own children in the future, so with right conditions they have all the chances to break the chain of poverty.
In this times is not easy because the world has become an small space to live with a lot of problems around, is changing to fast and life looks to short. But, with small actions the life of people can be change it.
We believe, the children who has to chance to study and get a really good formation increase the opportunities to achieve their dreams and be a doctor, teacher, lawyer etc.
And the best of all, they can help others.
WE APPRECIATE ALL THE SUPPORT WE RECEIVE IN THIS PLATFORM AND IN OUR PROGRAMS IN GUATEMALA.
THANK YOU TO BE PART OF US, WE COULD DO IT WITHOUT YOU
