Creating a brighter future for children in Guatemala

Team members needed:
4th annual Guatemala English Camp

Join us in providing a rare opportunity for local kids to learn from native English speakers. No special skills are needed – just the ability to speak English and a love of working with children and young people. Trip dates: June 17 - 25, 2017; apply by March 15th [ more details ]
Kids in Lemoa thank you!
Milk Distributed on February 13th

Thanks to everyone who donated to our Christmas Milk Program, we were able to include every family in the village. That means extra nutrition for children in hundreds of area families. [ photos ]
