BENEFITING: TRANSITIONS FOUNDATION OF GUATEMALA INC
Transitions Foundation of Guatemala provides critical services for persons with disabilities, many of whom are either victims of gun violence or of serious accidents. The foundation focuses on social reintegration, provides mobility through wheelchairs and prosthetics, job skills, medical counseling for maintaining good health, and how to mentor others coming into the program. Additionally, Transitions plays a central role in advocating for policies to reduce gun violence in Guatemala.
In order to cover the bills, Transitions Foundation operates a wheelchair fabrication workshop, as well as a graphic design and printing studio. Each of these locations are primarily staffed by individuals who were patients of Transitions, received medical care, counseling, and life skills, and then became employed as wheelchair manufacturers and/or print designers. In addition to all of this, the foundation provides multiple educational scholarships each year and runs a professional wheelchair basketball team that won the Central America and Caribbean Championship in 2011.
Transitions is growing and needs to expand their operations by building a newer, more modern, and higher capacity workshop to continue providing services for those in need and generate funds to sustain their operations. Right now, Transitions Foundation is in need of funds to ship 6 containers of donated construction and medical supplies that cannot leave port until the shipping costs are secured.
Important information regarding the funds you raise or donate: All donations raised through this campaign will go to Transitions Foundation of Guatemala. The primary commitment for these funds is to complete the new Wheelchair Workshop and Program Center and continue to offer operating support and our other projects in Guatemala. Should funds from this campaign be available after our commitment is satisfied, we reserve the right to re-allocate them to future development projects or special initiatives.
Every dollar counts and we appreciate anything you can GIVE!! No amount is too small.
