Challenge

In Guatemala there is little support or information available for new parents of children with Down syndrome, and as a result they are often uncertain how to interact with and care for their child. The first few years of life are vital for any child and this stage is especially important for children with Down syndrome. Without support and training parents often lack the skills and information to support their child's early development.

Solution

This project will provide emotional support and training to parents of young children with Down syndrome at regular meetings. The training will provide them with the information and skills they need to care for their child and support them to achieve their full potential.

Long-Term Impact

Parents with the right skills and knowledge to support their young children with Down syndrome will be able to ensure they thrive and develop into happy, healthy adults who can fulfill their dreams for life.
