Proyecto Vamos Adelante
Greenwich World Hunger Association
Vamos Adelante is a private initiative that serves a region of Guatemala where the population harvests sugar cane and coffee beans. Therefore, they are without income for long periods of time. Due to the lack of educational opportunities, illiteracy is widespread and poverty fosters illness and malnutrition. The Vamos Adelante School (pictured above) assists children from nine villages not only with their academic performance but also provides the nutrition necessary to overcome the traumas related to their living conditions. Contributions help to defray school fees, provide academic materials, uniforms and shoes. Please give generously our Lenten Offering and support this amazingly successful venture to some of the poorest communities in Central America.
