Helping young people find their way in the world
Casa Guatemala is just the first step in a long road to a brighter future.
In striving to best prepare our children for independent living and also to provide another source of income for our organization, Casa Guatemala has created various self-sufficiency projects. These include Hotel Backpackers and the Butcher Shop “Granja de los Ninos” in Rio Dulce.
Many of the children who have grown up with Casa Guatemala work in the businesses while continuing their studies or even after they are finished. For those who grew up with us as orphans, our businesses are always there to provide them with a job in the future and help them to gain the experience. Eventually, Casa Guatemala hopes to support ourselves entirely through these and other business initiatives as a self-sustained community.
