Project Report | Aug 11, 2023
Help underprivileged children in Guatemala

By Rene Corado | Project Leader

Report from Apr 1-Jul 31, 2023

The El Lustrador Foundation (ELF) is helping underprivileged children in Guatemala with their education.  ELF is raising money to provide for these needs and to keep the school in good physical shape: ELF continues to work with the community that lives adjacent to the Guatemala City Basurero, or landfill, and the kids who attend Manuel Marcos Martinez School and Alberto Mejia. The families in this community scratch out a living by scavenging at the landfill, and their children attend the local school.

The mothers of children who attend these schools work at the landfill everyday without holidays. We want to give them a little happiness and every year we celebrate Mothers Day with them, in May 2023 we celebrate it providing food, drinks, piñatas, clowns etc., they had a great time.

We finished the  construction of bleachers in the new community room, also we help fixing the teachers bathroom floors and other small repairs at the entrance of the schools. Very soon the children will have a new room to play, eat and have other activities, the multi-use room is ready and we will inaugurate it no later than November 2023. The school is painted now and have new toilets and renew bathrooms.

René Corado is traveling to Guatemala in August 2023 to visit the schools and see the new construction.

Our fundraising is going well so far: from Sep 13, 2021 to Jul 31, 2023, we received 14,583 in donations for our goal of $50,000, in 215 donations from a total of 89 different donors. If you are not one of the recurring donors; we hope you decide to join us. 

A great thank you to all of you, the donors, from the Board of Directors of ELF -- René, Linnea, Don, Eddie, René Jr., and Dexter.– as well as our amazing volunteers in Guatemala and USA.

Thank you again for your support with our Guatemalan children. Education is the key to open the door of the dreams.
