Who We Are
Connecting global communities to systematically improve the overall livelihood and well being of women and children.
Our focus is Guatemala/Central America. We aim to improve the health and life aspects of impoverished children by facilitating change through local leadership and local communities.
The chronic malnutrition rate for children under 5 in Guatemala is 49.8 percent, the fourth highest in the world, according to the World Food Program. We want to see every child in Guatemala have access to a daily nutritious serving, and we have accepted the challenge for 2012 to provide 10,000 daily servings.
We see education as the key to breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala. We have partnered with local schools to encourage them in providing an excellent education for poverty stricken children. Illiteracy is 31.1 percent in women 15 years of age and older and reaches 59 percent among indigenous women.
We believe that people in Guatemala are the solution to fix any problem devaluing their community. RU4Children offers a great avenue to connect leaders and organizations to troubled communities in order to help facilitate change.
