Dollar for Dollar Matching Opportunity to Grow the Village…
Project Somos’ vision is to keep families together and break the cycle of poverty for Guatemalan mothers and children in need. We empower single, widowed or abandoned mothers with essential life and vocational skills, allowing their children to focus on education and play.
A generous donor has offered $10,000 in matching funds for our annual Summer Campaign. The funds we raise during the summer months are critical to our ongoing growth and operations!
Help us take advantage of this golden opportunity. Donate to the Summer Matching Campaign by September 8 and double your dollar to Project Somos Children’s Village!
Consider becoming a monthly donor now and your donations for two months will be automatically doubled!
Over the past year, Project Somos has been focused on meeting the needs of our current families and expanding our programming!
• Our primary school students now attend class onsite in the Village. An excellent teacher guides them through a distance education program offered by a qualified Guatemalan school.
• Our preschoolers take part in afternoon programming to keep their days busy with arts, learning and play! Added bonus – the mamas have more time to work on skill development!
• Mamas are busy pursuing the skills they are passionate about, such as baking, agriculture, and handicrafts.
• We’re growing our agriculture program to provide more sustainable funding for the Village, cut our food costs, and teach mamas relevant farming techniques for their agrarian communities!
We are very pleased with the progress of our mamas and children so far! Take a look at these Before & After Stories to see how far they have come (a new story will be added every week of the campaign).
We look forward to welcoming more families any day now!
