Project Niños de Guatemala
Niños de Guatemala is a nonprofit organization that provides education to Ciudad Vieja’s poorest children to develop themselves and improve their life quality and their community’s. NDG’s strength is in the combined support from both international and local people.
To contribute to a better future for the people of Guatemala by initiating and supporting development projects where they are most needed.
NDG finished the construction of “Nuestro Futuro” primary school in zone 3 of Ciudad Vieja in 2008. Classes started in January 2009 with four grades: preschool, kindergarten and two sections of first grade. Today 71 children attend Nuestro Futuro. Students receive classes of the basic national curriculum in the morning and arts and crafts in the afternoon.
As most of the children come to school without eating breakfast, we would like to provide a healthy lunch soon. Also, we will build the second floor of the school this year to house a library and a community center.
Volunteers, padrinos, financial support, funds for lunch program, school supplies, books in Spanish for our library, clothes, hygiene items.
To learn more about the program you’re welcome to join our free tour every Wednesday at 2 p.m. from our volunteer center (6a avenida norte #45, La Antigua).
