"I feel really sad because in my family, there is no happiness. My dad is drunk every day and he hits my mom. I am always alone and when I feel sad and have problems, I go into the mountains and cry. I feel so happy that I am now learning letters and will be able to read.”
Learn. Grow. Sustain.
The Project Somos Children’s Village is an eco-sustainable community aiming to break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala by providing quality education and healthy food to families in need.
As an education centre, the Village provides programming to children in the surrounding community who were falling through the cracks of the Guatemalan system.
Project Somos further supports the children’s families by providing vocational training and opportunities to the mothers, as well as parenting classes in topics like nutrition and hygiene.
We believe that healthy, educated children can help break the cycle of poverty for future generations in Guatemala.
