Hello friends and fam and thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I first went to Guatemala the summer before I graduated nursing school and absolutely fell in love with the people and the country - so much that I went back again 2 years later. Since service teams have been unable to go to Guatemala this year because of COVID-19, I decided to become an ambassador in hopes to raise money so the God’s Child Project can continue to serve the beautiful people in Guatemala.
The Gods Child project in Guatemala, also known as Asociación Nuestros Ahijados (ANA) was founded in 1991. The projects headquarters is called "The Dreamer Center” and it is a beautiful oasis in the center of Antigua, Guatemala. The Dreamer Center is home to a center for malnourished children (Casa Jackson), a school, and a health clinic. They provide medical, dental, and psychological care, as well as education, disaster relief, crisis-intervention, and community-connection services to thousands of extremely poor people from the surrounding villages and mountainside slums.
Unfortunately COVID-19 has affected everyone in different ways, but has especially affected impoverished countries like Guatemala. It would mean so much to me if you would consider making a donation to help the kiddos and families at the God’s Child Project. Below I listed some of the program expenses to give you an idea of costs:
$30 Cost of one month’s supply of diapers for one child-patient at Casa Jackson
$40 Water filter to provide clean water and prevent illness
$70 Medicine for a malnourished infant for one week
$100 Cost of care for one person in our Santa Madre homeless shelter
$150 School supplies for an entire year for one student
$375 Provides a year’s supply of vegetables for a mother in our mother’s club
$500 Pays the average monthly salary for a teacher in our Dreamer and Scheel center schools
$900 One month expense at Casa Jackson covers all expenses for one baby in residence
$2,500 Construction of one new house for a family in need
