About Guatemala 
Family Development

OUR MISSION 

To support and elevate the health, well-being, and education of Mayan children and families in rural Guatemalan communities through philanthropy, aid, and service. 

OUR VISION 

Children and families thriving in health, education, community, and opportunity. 

OUR HISTORY 

We began in 1986 with a small mission being sent to work with Habitat for Humanity in a small village in Guatemala's mountains.  There, we experienced  the empathy within families of the Mayan culture.  We realized our desire to continue supporting the communities living here. We have returned to the same villages since to nurture relationships and improve living conditions. 

 

In the beginning, our work was building homes, but in the past 10 years we have partnered with Guatemala NGO, FUNDENOR, located in Tactic, Guatemala (near these villages). FUNDENOR provides a local presence  in the Verapaces region. We travel to this region once or twice per year to conduct medical clinics, educate on health/wellness, provide scholarships for girls’ middle school education, work on construction projects, and install pure water systems.  We use your donations to support these efforts through churches, organizations and fundraising events.  We believe we have made a truly positive impact on the people, and we hope to see the relationship flourish for years to come.  They are our Guatemalan family, with God’s guidance and your help, we will continue to give suport
