We are creating community leaders through person-to-person
sponsorship and a critical-thinking education program that
includes the development of mind, body, spirit and emotions.  

Our three main programs have been affecting change in the
lives of 60 adolescents and their families in the resource-poor neighborhoods surrounding the UNESCO city of La Antigua Guatemala since the spring of 2010. 

Our model is simple; Nourish, Learn, Socialize, Transform.

About Guatemala
Guatemala is a country of
stunning beauty and stark
contrasts. It is a
democratic republic of 108,890 square
kilometers (42,042 square
miles), that’s about the
size of Virginia, half the
size of the UK and a little
bigger than Ireland. 

Guatemala is the next
country south of Mexico
and with a population of
14 million people, it is
the second most densely
populated country in
Central America.

43% of children under five
are malnourished, one of
the highest malnutrition
rates in the world. More
than half of the population
is below the national
poverty line and 15%
live in extreme poverty. 

Poverty among indigenous
groups, which make up
38% of the population,
averages 76% and extreme poverty rises to 28%.

significant, is doing so by using and teaching Integral
This insures a
