The core of our work is inviting vulnerable and disadvantaged children to be part of an expansive, inspiring, and mentoring educational experience in our unique forest camp, located in the Highlands of Guatemala, overlooking the famous Lake Atitlan.
COVID-19 has stormed across the world leaving no one untouched in some way. Here in Guatemala, although the government was very quick to shut down the country, the knock-on economic effects are now being felt hardest by the country’s most vulnerable people.
Niños del Lago realised that the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 would mean that we could not go ahead with the planned annual camps due in Oct/Nov. It quickly became very evident that due to the lockdown of the country the most vulnerable children and their families were going to have difficulty accessing food. We wished to do something to help our neighbours and local communities. The decision was taken to use the funds we already had to go towards supplying basic food provisions to as many families as we could through a FOOD-AID PROGRAM.
