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.
