Sonrisas de Esperanza Service trip to Guatemala
Organized by: Mary Sebastian
EVENT DATE Jul 26, 2015
Our first project is to complete the tiling in the kitchen and storage area at Semillas de Amor. We will also be installing a cabinet made by a Guatemalan carpenter in the passway between the dining area and the kitchen. Semillas de Amor is a wonderful children's home in Guatemala. The goal is to teach these children to make a difference in their world. They are provided a home atmosphere where they are family. The children are bi-lingual and attend the Antigua International School, receiving a college prep education. You can read all about Semillas de Amor at their website. www.semillasdeamor.org.
Our second project is working with Guatemalan workers to build a youth center in San Antonio Aguas Calientes for the Niños con Bendición program. This will provide a safe place for the children to learn,play and work in their community. The program is a sponsorship program providing the funds for the children to attend school. They also are provided a meal each day, English, music and dance lessons as well as carpentry and culinary instruction. You can read about the Niños at www.Ninosconbendicion.com.
