Hello friends and family,
As you know Kyle and I moved to Guatemala in October of 2017 in search of a few things. One of them is becoming involved in our community and immersing ouselves in the culture. Kyle and I took our time to search and carefully selcted a NGO that we trully believe in and trust. We have met with Niños de Guatemala and are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them.
We are both passionate about education and while living in Guatemala it has been eye opening to see that the majority or Guatemalan children don't have the opportunity to go to school. We have seen first hand both children that are able to succeed through education and those that spend their days staying home or selling in the streets. We want more children to go to school and more families to succeed.
We want to give our family and friends the opporutunity to help our volunteering efforts and support Ninos de Guatemala. It is one thing to build a school. It is another to keep it running. NDG relies solely on donations to keep all of thier 470+ children in school, equipped with all their school supplies and with full bellies. They also pay all of their teachers fair salaries and ensure that the school is kept clean and cared for. Every little bit helps when providing these children a quality eduaction.
All money raised goes directly towards the support of our schools and projects, and will aid immensely in the development and the future of the organization.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change to the world."
