Hello, Niños de Guatemala community!

Something magical is happening in the heart of our vibrant schools – a transformation beyond textbooks and classrooms. Our innovative workshops are crafting a new narrative of education that embraces creativity, entrepreneurship, and the immense power of self-expression.  Thanks to the support of incredible women volunteers who have stepped forward and decided to support our students.

In our art workshop, imparted by Barbara Castañeda, colors come to life,  and imagination knows no bounds. Here, our students discover the profound value of creativity. Through brushstrokes and vibrant hues, they create masterpieces and nurture their mental health. Art becomes a sanctuary, a realm where worries fade and self-confidence blooms. In each stroke, they find solace, strength, and the courage to face the world with newfound resilience.


Meanwhile, in our carpentry workshop, imparted by Suzan Eleveld the echo of hammers and the scent of freshly cut wood fill the air. Here, young hands learn the art of craftsmanship, creating incredible furniture that mirrors their potential. But it’s not just about the end product; it’s about instilling responsibility and the spirit of entrepreneurship. Our students learn that every piece they craft carries a portion of their dreams, teaching them the importance of dedication, precision, and the joy of bringing ideas to life.


These workshops are more than just classes; they are sanctuaries of inspiration where passion ignites and dreams take shape. The skills learned here go far beyond the workshop doors, shaping futures and building a foundation for a lifetime of success.


Join us in celebrating these remarkable journeys of creativity and craftsmanship. Witness the transformative power of education that goes beyond conventional boundaries, nurturing not just the mind but also the soul. Together, we are shaping a generation of innovators, dreamers, and change-makers. Thank you for being a part of this incredible voyage.
