The Manos Amigas Centre in Guatemala is a safe heaven that provides education and health care to children and their mothers through self-management and women's empowerment.
A project born in the 80's thanks to Sister Marcella which has changed the lives of over 5,000 children and their mothers.
How are your monies spent?
90% of all donations are spent on the children, the mothers and on the Centre in Guatemala. Only 10% is spent in administration.
The Manos Amigas centre is located in San Andrés Itzapa, Chimaltenango, Guatemala.
The philosophy of the Centre is not only to offer these mothers and their children a home to start a new life. It is above all to offer a period of tranquility and peace to train and learn skills to provide a long-term future in society. in order to be able to train and realize jobs that can later be performed in society.
