“There are two ways of spreading light:
to be the candle or the mirror that

Water in Guatemala can be too dangerous to drink, not only for visitors, but locals as well. 5% of rural Guatemalan children will die before they reach kindergarten or first grade due to their poor conditions. The water crisis can be fought with your help.
This filtration system will serve multiple families and provide them with clean water.
CLEAN BURNING EFFICIENT COOKSTOVE
These clean burning stoves are a vast improvement over the primitive cooking pits that are too common within the rural regions of Guatemala.
Traditional open flame kitchens create hazardous fumes that are inhaled while cooking. These fumes produce about 40 cigarettes' worth of smoke per hour. Learn more on our "About Us" page about our life saving cooking method.
Many homes in Guatemala do not provide adequate shelter from the elements and routinely fall into disrepair.
The Hard Floored Family Home is a simple structure that is secure and capable of withstanding typical adverse weather conditions.
All donations make a difference no matter how big or small. Please use this donation button to make a customized contribution.
Additional donations go towards providing medicine, newborn blankets, chicken coops, school desks and supplies.
