Vivamos Mejor would like to build bridges together with you for socially disadvantaged people in Latin America. They mantain three programms called "bridge to school", "bridge to working life" and "bridge for food and water".
The LatAm team is very pleased to support Vivamos Mejor for the third time, this because of their great and important work.
Problem We Are Trying to Solve
In Latin America, many families, children and young people live in poverty. They need support to rise out of poverty and actively shape their futures.
The LatAM Team has decided to support a project called "More than maize". It is an important nutrition program for Mayan families in Guatamala. In the three indigenous village communities of Pajomel, Chuitzanchaj and Laguna Seca in the department of Sololá, more than 70% of the young children are malnourished. The harvests of Mayan families are threatened by declining soil fertility. Many children suffer from diarrheal diseases due to poor hygienic conditions and are unable to utilize the little food available. Malnutrition and undernourishment have a strong impact on development, especially during the first three years of life, and thus have lifelong consequences.
How We Are Going To Do It
As we are approaching the Festive Season and a new year, we reflect on the year past. "This is the season of giving" and in the spirit of it, what can we do to relieve some of the pain people are facing. This is where we call on YOU.
If you think about making donations, why not support a cause close to our hearts, close to the countries we love.
We would like to rally against poverty in this country and therefore would like to make donation to specific cause. We want our contribution to be one that brings about a tangible improvement in people’s lives. ¡Vivamos mejor!
