Challenge

Imagine growing up in a place where children are more likely to be seen completing menial tasks to help their parents such as running errands, cleaning the house, taking care of younger siblings or even working than they are to be playing. In our community in Guatemala, these latter scenarios are commonplace. Not surprisingly, our community is also a place where childhood is short and many teens fall into drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy and gang membership.

Solution

Playing board games is a wholesome and fun activity that helps reduce stress; teaches patience, problem solving and following instructions and improves social skills.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide access to monthly board game afternoons for 50 or more children with the hope that taking part in this wholesome activity will encourage them to stay children longer and will help them avoid falling into the mistakes their peers make such as abuse of drugs and alcohol, teen pregnancy and gang membership.
