Association to Eradicate Poverty
San Jose Chacaya Solola - Community Center with Medical Clinic, Library, Job Training, Classroom, Nutritional Support
Providing Education, Training and Child Support in Rural Indigenous Community - SOLALA Guatemala and Parent Training and Family Counseling in Guatemala City.
During their years of working with children and families, Fatimas realized that the root causes of poverty need to be addressed rather than supporting children and families that suffer from the results. This grew into the Association to Eradicate Poverty
We hope you can join us in our Goal to Raise $275,000 US dollars to purchase the land to preserve, and complete the first phase of the project which is the Community Center.
Whatever the reason for the infants, children and youth finding themselves without a home, food, education and care, it is clear that they all need consistent loving care, psychological support and life skill training in an environment they can consider home. They all need a continuum of safe care without the fear and consequences of being moved from place to place, or released without proper life skills and support and self worth.
Fátimas, in Guatemala City have proven successful in helping children in the worst of situations form a future. When adequately supported and staffed with loving trained professionals we can provide the full range of supports to not only keep abandoned, abused and at risk children alive, but to give them an opportunity for self sufficiency and future opportunites, and with the most important component of all.. knowing that they will always have an address and a place where they are loved and cared for.
We are continuing to raise funds to build the community center in rural Guatemala to provide safety, education, health care and assistance to women and children that are victims of violence in their regions.
In keeping with our proven model for the development of mental health, life skills, and a strong education with deep ties to the local Community, including language, traditions, and respect for the enviroment, we are excited to unroll the many phases of the SOLALA projects.
We hope you can join us in our Goal to Raise $275,000 US dollars to purchase the land, and build the first phase of the project.
Corazones Felices - Family Outreach
Feliz Corazones, or 'The Happy Hearts' program, is run by Guillermo and Gabby, the children of Rosa Maria Vides de Monzon who established the program. They are dedicated to helping at-risk families keep and raise their children. The program is focused on helping poor Guatemalan children to improve their ways of life through the love and commitment of some wonderful sponsors. They currently have numerous children in need of sponsorship.

Guatemala City, emergency child protection services and care.
Guatemala has a large number of children in institutions, many of which are inadequately staffed and lacking in their ability to provide education, health care, physical safety and emotional support. When children or teenagers age out of institutional care they may be released with no family to return to, and they often have insufficient education to obtain a skilled job, and no address to go home to. This results in a life in the streets and a difficult or impossible path not only for a successful and productive life, but also for survival. We try to erase that scenario by providing much more then the essential needs of food and housing for our kids. We want to provide a good life, now and for their futures. The priority is to provide the highest level of education and care while trying to reunite them safely with family, or create new families where they will educated and treated with dignity and love forever.
Fatima's is not an orphanage, and they support family strengthening and new family creation to place children in loving families that is best for the child.
Fatima Children's Home is a loving place where;
