Our mission is to empower the poorest, at-risk children of families working in the Guatemala City garbage dump community by creating opportunities and fostering dignity through the power of education.
We are a top-rated charity working in Guatemala City since 1999 to bring hope, education, and opportunity to the children and families trying to make a living around the city’s garbage dump—one of the largest landfills in Central America.
Inspired by the vision of our founder, Hanley Denning, we are educators, healthcare providers, donors and volunteers from around the world. Together we educate more than 550 children and 100 adults from nearly 300 families. We guide our students as they achieve their goals and change their lives.
