Who We Are

Niños del Lago is a unique, non-profit youth-development organization dedicated to inspiring and empowering vulnerable Guatemalan children to fulfill their potential and become positive, productive members of their communities.


Through an annual one-week, nature-camp experience and mentoring program, we work to bring hope to thousands of children and develop their potential to become positive changemakers and future leaders for a more peaceful and harmonious Guatemala.


Through the joy of play, creative activities, structured learning and leadership training, our three powerful, integrated programs, based on Mindfulness training, encourage children to stay in school and provides a bridge to higher learning through scholarship as early as the 4th grade.


Working in collaboration with a network of outstanding NGO link-partners that operate privately-sponsored public schools throughout western Guatemala, the innovative Niños del Lago program leads to long-term positive social change for thousands of Guatemalan children, their families and their communities.
