Casa Guatemala is a registered NGO and receives no government funding. They rely on funds from individuals and groups around the world to provide care for up to 300 children at our village and in the larger community. These children have been wards of the State, but the majority come from families from the surrounding Mayan villages who live in cases of extreme poverty who, without Casa Guatemala, would have no other access to education.
Casa Guatemala strives to equip the children in our care with the skills and education needed to become upstanding, empowered citizens in their communities. We aim to become fully self-sustained through the businesses that we run which provide us with financial support as well as meaningful job-training opportunities for the older children.
The letter can be in any language, and we would be happy to translate the letter into English if you would like. Please try to keep the language relatively simple and make the message between 100-500 words. Our team will handwrite and personalize each letter for the orphans.
