In the field of research, bullying is a worldwide known phenomenon that has been studied since the 1970s in Europe and the United States of North America. With the process of the investigations, the consequences left by the bullying of the victims were found, because during childhood and adolescence, the personality is developing and this phenomenon leaves traces on the boy or girl that have an impact on their ability to relate socially and in their subsequent behavior patterns.

It is also important to mention that the tendency to adapt many victims makes them join the group of aggressors who harass them to attack others; likewise, another percentage of them, in the spirit of not being the only victims, lash out at those they consider weaker. This generates a chain of aggressor victim where the most affected is the weakest in the group. Therefore, it is important to detect who shows aggressive characteristics to implement direct intervention programs with them.

Finally, it must be remembered that it is a right for all children to be educated in a place with the right conditions to achieve integral development and phenomena such as bullying make it difficult. For that reason, the phenomenon investigation is increasing all over the world.

By definition, the phenomenon of bullying attempts against the proper development of future citizens; Consequences are known in the victims, in the aggressors and also in the witnesses who are not directly involved in the situation. In addition, academic repercussions are known for the group of students that, according to international research, undermine the goal of achieving educational quality.

There is no doubt about the need to inform and sensitize the general population about the relational dynamics within the school, especially when it endangers the integral development of future citizens.

In The God’s Child Project schools, we look forward to provide an environment where our kids can feel free and joyful about their life, we try to provide an area where they can be themselves and feel confident about everything that they do.

Thank you for believing in us and always look forward our mission!


Is indredible how life changes in a second in this new world.

One day you dream at school what person you will become and another day you ask how you will survive.

At this moment someone is making a decision that will change its life forever. Sometimes this decision can take a second. Life is a precious gift that every human being has received. In what moment people choice to participate in traffic in persons. Those decisions are based in money, power, influence. The reasons maybe cant appear in the surface.

The true. Every act of a person has consequences in others, these can be damage collateral or direct. The criminals live their lives not expecting consequences. But when they comes usually cause a collateral damage. If they are children they will grow up in a criminal world starting a new chain of slavery. 

So, the criminals really know what they are? or they are living their life because couldn't take decisions. They don't had a good guide, a good parents or family worried about their environment.

The victims probably can take some decisions but these were affected for others called criminals. Somewhere  someone is taking the decision to travel illegally their acts are in a good way because is to improve a life conditions but in other place someone is waiting for this opportunity to take advantage of it.

The present is caused for a life a decisions. Some of them were mistakes necessaries to learn, to discover the essence of life.

Probably we have taken good decisions because we can, but we have to consciente than others couldn't. If we can take the change to correct many problems of our world, the moment is now.

We have the power to decide to help others and change the world in a second.

Hi my name is Sebedeo, I am 10 years old, I was born in the department of Quiché, my father died in an accident because he was an alcoholic, before dying several times he tried to abuse from me. My mother is the one who takes care of us, but to be honest brothers are the ones that are really taking care of me, most of the time I'm with them because my mother always has a lot of work and she gets up very early in the morning and always arrives at night and sometimes I don’t see her very often.

We came to live in Antigua because in our town there are no good opportunities to work, thank God we are safe here, but we do not have the love of our mom. Since I was 5 years old, I have worked, I get on the buses to sell sweets and chewing gum, my sister also does it, in some occasions I have also worked to shine shoes and also to wash cars.

My mom had many friends, sometimes I took them to the house to stay and sleep there, I listen to everything they say and do. Due to this situation we were referred by the Court to the Asociación Nuestros Ahijados, because my mother did not want to put us to study and just wanted us to work.

After selling candy, shining shoes, being at risk in the streets, not having to eat, I am in the Dreamer Center School, I am very happy to receive classes and not have to work hard, I’m in first grade, all the days I receive breakfast and lunch, besides that I have a safe place to be and people to play with.

My mother is the only one who works and she also attends a group of women from the Association called "Mothers' Club" and receives vegetables every Friday, thanks to the support of the Association my life has improved, I feel very happy and wanting to achieve my dreams of being a veterinarian.

The lady is originally from San Felipe de Jesus of Antigua Guatemala, she is currently 19 years old. She grew up in a family with 5 siblings and their two parents, being of very scarce economic resources. To make things worse, Rosa is the older sister and she was the one who helped her mother take care of them, sometimes even working cutting wood or selling sweets in the streets.

Rosa had not received academic training and was already 11 years old, could not read or write, and the mother did not worry about that since she (the mother) had been raised in this way. The father of the family was dedicated to drinking alcoholic beverages all the time and he used drugs of all kinds; he never contributed money to the family, he only beat and insulted everyone, all the time, the mother did not present any objection because she was intimidated by him under death threats against her and her children.

However, the most futile and abject act that could culminate the actions of this despicable father, was the sexual abuse of the eldest daughter on more than one occasion, and threatened him with death so that he would not say anything to any person. After about six months, the young lady could not contain her sadness and disappointment in life before such a desperate situation and tried to take her own life, so the mother noticing this, intervened and prevented the attack of her daughter could be avoided .

Faced with this situation, the family mother sought help without caring about the threats of her partner, who at that time already belonged to a gang (called in Guatemala as gang members), but no place offered them a correct orientation. Until the lady heard about Nuestros Ahijados through neighbors who advised her to go, for which she asked for help for her daughter and her other children.

Nuestros Ahijados proceeded through the Legal Department, to denounce the corresponding authorities to initiate a legal process against the father for the crime of sexual and psychological abuse and mistreatment of women, among other things of which he would be accused, for belonging to a gang.

After initiating the process, the authorities found after two months that the father had fled, was captured and prosecuted for his crimes; The project gave all the support in the legal, psychological, medical and academic area to the young lady and all her little brothers, who started studying at the Centro Soñador. The father is still serving his sentence and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

She was the first victim to enter the ITEMP program in year 2, 009 because the living conditions were not good, besides that she works in the dumpster with her sister and her mother, they collected plastic and ate the waste that they found there, they were exposed to some disease as to sexual abuse. She is originally from Ciudad Vieja, and since she was a child she had to work. After knowing what the girls' lives were like, the US State Department, together with Asociación Nuestros Ahijados, began to support this family, the end of which was that both the women and the girls would no longer continue to collect garbage and they had the opportunity to study. They had the opportunity to receive psychological, medical, dental, clothing and shoes support as well as the other members of the family, the mother attended the Mothers Club and received training in jewelry and pastry, besides that they received financial help with the in order to defray the expenses that they had in the home. Currently the young lady continues to receive support with clinics, clothes and food, besides this she is receiving legal support because her husband died in an accident three months ago, the man came from work at dawn, the company driver lost control and they had an accident, unfortunately the lord lost his life and left a 4-month-old girl, the Association's lawyer is advising her so that she can receive what is fair by taking into account the irreparable loss of her husband. Despite the loss of her husband, the young lady is very grateful for the support she has been given, since the company where the husband works did not want to be responsible.
