As we all know, 2021 was a challenging year at a global level. Which led many organizations around the world to center their donations and income into what's truly necessary and try to maintain projects for what is worth fighting for. At Niños de Guatemala we were able to keep our dream running and it was possible thanks to you and your generous heart, so beforehand, thank you so much for showing your support and kindness to our organization.
The center of our work are our students, in 2021 we prioritized having the three schools efficiently working and providing to our students with the necessary educational tools. As a whole, Breaking the Cycle of Poverty was helpful to operate and maintain our three schools, which benefits the 550 students of Niños de Guatemala. The expenses covered with this project were garbage removal at our three schools, which is not a public service in Guatemala as well as water and electricity bills, workforce especifically to prepare teacher´s cubicles as the new working modality demands having a cubicle covered by glass and wood at a safe distance between each other and maintenance and reparation of water pumps at Nuestro Futuro and El Porvenir schools, as in rural areas water becomes a scarce resource, so it was vital to repair the two water pumps in order to provide with water both schools. These were our priorities in order to be ready to receive the kids back in presence for this school year.
Thanks to all, with your support and solidarity we were able to cover and prioritize these expenses in 2021 to continue providing school facilities to our students and make sure we are ready to receive the kids this school year with all of the necessary goods and services.
