We’ve come so far — and we know there is more to do.
Phase IV – Essential construction
Finishing all essential projects such as El Nido, allowing the gates to be opened. Donate to these projects now
Phase V – Initial operation
Phase VI – Final construction
Construction of the remaining aspects of the forest camp that are desirable but not essential, such as the tree house village and the game room.
When the forest camp is fully operational, up to 75 children each week will relax, eat well and gain valuable and positive experiences through games, creative activities and by learning to be mindful.
Next challenges – replication to other areas
Issues of child poverty and lack of education are also prevalent in other areas of Guatemala and the neighboring countries of El Salvador, Nicaragua and Honduras.
We believe that our model, where children have an educational camping experience with mentoring and mindfulness training for one week a year, is replicable across these areas and beyond.
We can see that in the future other camps could be opened across Central America, using the expertise and experiences gained at the Panajachel site.
