Volunteer with Niños de Guatemala

Niños de Guatemala

Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala, Central America

Niños de Guatemala is a Dutch-Guatemalan nonprofit working to break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala by providing quality education to those who need it most.

Niños de Guatemala empowers communities in marginalized areas of Guatemala. We achieve this by providing education that extends beyond the traditional classroom across three levels: students, their families, and the larger community.

We take a holistic approach to education providing psychology and social work services alongside a nutritional program.

We aim to be sustainable both at the organizational and community level through initiating and supporting social business activities and fostering an entrepreneurial spirit.
