BENEFITING: VILLAGE COOPERATIVE INC
The "Kids for Guatemala" group is returning to this beautiful country to assist our project partners in taking the next steps in their development. We believe whole-heartedly in teaching our children the value and importance of giving back. We spend months prior to each trip fundraising as individuals, as families, and as a group. Your involvement in this process is essential to our success.
We hope you will help us to accomplish the following goals:
*Provide the food kitchen with vitamin enriched milk so that 50 severly malnourished children can receive treatment for 6 months
*Build two classrooms for a Primary School in one of our partner villages
*Paint and brighten the learning environment at a school in one of our partner villages
*Provide 10 single mothers in our program with new tin roofs for their homes
*Install new concrete floors for 20 families in our program
*Deliver 60 beds and mattresses to participants in our elderly program
*Supplement the salary for a local project manager attending to the various villages
We have seen the impact of our work firsthand. Increasing access to education in the villages has a direct effect on the ability of families to step up the economic ladder and eventually climb their way out of poverty. We are playing an essential role in this process by building more classrooms, creating more effective learning spaces, and improving the quality of life at home for the families in our program.
We thank you in advance for your continued support!
