Breaking the Chains

In 2009, the San Juan Alotenango dumpster was visited, it was there where this family met, it was observed that the children of the lady were helping to collect plastics there in the dumpster, because they worked there, the children. They had enough respiratory problems. They have had to work since the father died because he consumed alcohol.

They are originally from Sacatepéquez and the mother had to get ahead with her children working in the dumpster, the lady said that what worried her most were the people she worked with, since the place was dangerous enough for girls like her daughters be there

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 studied at the Scheel Technical Educational Center of Asociacion Nuestros Ahijados and the mother no longer needs to go to the dump, the family's life has changed a lot since the services they have had have been enough, the girls have had the opportunity to receive psychological, medical, dental, clothing and shoes support as well as other family members, the mother was attending literacy classes.

Currently they receive the same benefits and they are also being supported with legal advice, since the daughter who is 17 years old, had problems with the mother and they entered her into a home, but with the support of the Legal Department the lady is already living again with the breast.

The lady is very grateful for the support that is being offered, this because she has been able to notice the change that her children have had and the desire with which her daughters live day by day.
