Target demographics: vulnerable, impoverished and orphaned children

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 500 children with our education, nutrition and healthcare programs at Casa Guatemala: 235 in our primary school alone and approximately 265 children aged 0-6 in our clinic from the local Mayan communities

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: help out with translating or fundraising as on site volunteering is in Guatemala

Geographic areas served: Guatemala

Programs: Primary Education, Shelter, Nutrition, Healthcare, and Sustainable Agriculture. FOGC is entirely run by volunteers so that all donations can go directly to support the children in need in Guatemala. Our main beneficiary is the Casa Guatemala school and orphanage (http://www.casa-guatemala.org). Casa Guatemala provides a safe home, hot meals, medical care, education and a healthy environment to up to 250 children in Guatemala who have been faced with abandonment, abuse, neglect or extreme poverty.

Mission:
Friends of Guatemalan Children's (FOGC) mission is to promote the health of Guatemalan children by providing financial assistance to organizations and establishments that provide nutritional and medical assistance to those children and to relieve the distress of orphaned and abandoned Guatemalan Children through provision of food, medical care, adoption assistance and similar activities.
Results:
FOGC provide financial, administrative and logistical support to Casa Guatemala and have done so for almost 30 years. We have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for grants for CG; assisted with the coordination of volunteers, schools, social clubs and church groups visiting; arranged for large shipments of supplies for the orphanage, school and clinic; and helped to organize trips of medical teams who have provided cleft lip and palate operations and other important surgeries to thousands of Guatemala's poorest people.
