  • Description

    Description

    We are a non-profit organization that seeks to support single teenage mothers and their children. 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.

    There is a support service with classes for the children, an urban garden where they can play, learn and share experiences. We hope to find people interested in helping these children and their mothers enhance their quality of life and give them a more hopeful future.
