Target demographics: Guatemalan schoolchildren ages 5-12 and their families.

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 1,000 children

Geographic areas served: Solola, Guatemala

Mission:
Our mission is to improve the health, well-being, and educational outcomes of children in Guatemala by partnering with schools, families and communities to provide the children with nourishing meals, health and hygiene care, and educational materials. By feeding the children, we are working to ensure that they complete primary school.
Results:
Mil Milagros partners with 5 schools and communities to provide 1,063 students with nutritious hot lunches, hygiene supplies and lessons and educational materials. 350 mothers were trained in nutritious meal preparation.
Some highlights and accomplishments from 2011:
- 95% of our students graduated from sixth grade in a country where, on average, only 30% of students do so.
- Strengthened our partnership with Wuqu' Kawoq, a health NGO based in Guatemala, to develop an Infant Nutrition Program, which treats 228 babies between 6-24 months to prevent the onset of malnutrition.
- In collaboration with Wuqu' Kawoq, provided medical care to 112 young children and 50 mothers in two of our communities.
- Developed a partnership with Salud y Paz, a healthcare NGO, to provide dental clinics to children and mothers in two of our partner schools.

Mil Milagros, one thousand miracles. Well it’s way more than that; way more than a thousand! The initial miracle was that a forty-somethingish Boston woman should have found herself on a fun vacation in Guatemala and be quickly overcome, indeed stricken, by the kids which, as if magnetized, ... more »
