About the Project

For older children, we offer a free after school program. These are older students who come from schools in Las Rosas. This program serves children 6-14 years, usually between 20 and 35 children. This programming is activities such as handicrafts, ballet, football and English classes, but also free play or mildly stimulated activities in the fields of sports, games and creativity. This runs from 2pm to 4.30pm, Monday till Thursday.

Social Impact

Since the kids in Guatemala only go to school in the mornings, we want to keep them off the street and avoid they fall into the ´wrong´ environment. Mom (and sometimes dad) are working all day and nobody really worries about what the kids are doing. Therefore we are open 4 days a week, to give them the opportunity to be a kid and play like a kid should.
