We are a non-profit organization that empowers and supports single teenage mothers and their children. We break the cycle of violence and stigmas regarding mental health and gender equality.
In Guatemala, there is a lot of poverty and a lack of opportunities to find decent and stable jobs. In the case of these single mothers, the few options in the country are minimum. We want to change their situation by helping them start their own business and offering them more services to improve their physical and psychological health and their children's. We are setting the stage in Guatemala; We introduce different ways of learning and growing, such as; Mindfulness, philosophy, and holistic ways of living.
We hope to find positive, loving, and caring people interested in helping these children and their mothers enhance their quality of life and give them a more hopeful future.
