About Us

We work to educate, feed, shelter and heal the impoverished populations of Lake Atitlán.

As an accredited 501(c)(3) non-governmental organization, our mission is to facilitate enduring, sustainable programs that promote community development. Our objective is to stimulate long-term progress through school sponsorships, health initiatives, vocational training and microfinance while providing emergency services to those in critical need. We aim to empower and collaborate with each community we work with to create lasting positive growth.
