Besides being one of the poorest countries, UNICEF states that Guatemala has the highest percentage of chronically malnourished children in Latin America and the fourth highest in the world. Due to poverty, women with very young children are forced to go to work, leaving their kids unattended. Children are often left in an unsafe environment with little food and beverages.


The full-day Day Care is established for the kids of poorest families in the rural area of Xela, Guatemala. With the dedicated care of experienced local nannies, our project creates a safe space to grow in a hygienic and cosy environment for babies and kids. Daily provided nutritious meals, medical attention and basic educational skills helps them with their early childhood development.

Long-Term Impact

In the long-term, most vulnerable victims of poverty, women and kids will have improved life quality. A safe local day care for women enables them to work more free while gaining confidence and creating a better future for the family. Day care will also lead to an improved health for babies and kids in the most important years of their development and diminish long-term effects of malnutrition which is key to a child's long-term success and productivity.
