     Despite their extreme poverty, the indigenous where we work are making positive changes every day. You know the way we work...all projects have to come from the people.  Entire communities are working together to improve their lives.They request our help to improve a school or build a water delivery system. Kids are asking us for assistance so they can go to school and teachers want training. So far this year our health team has treated 3,900 patients. 

     Because of your generosity, families in San Martin, Jilotepeque are learning how to live healthier and aspire for greater change.  We need to continue the momentum.

     Consider giving a Sustainable Gift this year. Your donation can provide an education for junior high and high school students or medicine for a child or elderly person who otherwise would go untreated. Improving a school increases their educational opportunities. There is no better way to honor a special person in your life than to give a gift to change a life.
