Madres Sanas Hijos Sanos
(Healthy Mothers Healthy Children)
Caring for the education and nutrition of our children since they are born (and even before that) has a huge impact in their emotional, cognitive and physical growth. The role of a mother is key to start breaking the cycle of poverty and malnutrition. That’s why we are committed to empower mothers to take control of the health and nutrition of their own family so they can raise happy and healthy children.
The goal of our Madres Sanas Hijos Sanos program is to improve the food and nutritional security of low-income families who have children under 5 years old by implementing vegetable gardens and running workshops for mothers in the Kaqchikel language on healthy cooking, nutrition, hygiene and education.
Their children are evaluated periodically so we can provide the nutritional support they need to recover their health.

We’ve implemented a holistic approach that focuses on three fundamental areas:
Our methodology is based on the American Creative Curriculum model and the National Base Curriculum (CNB) from the Guatemalan Ministry of Education. These innovative and research-based approaches are led by certified teachers from the community. They receive ongoing feedback and are constantly trained to offer the high-quality education that all children deserve.
