The Guatemalan Families Association

Charity description

The Guatemalan Families Association logo
The Guatemalan Families Association (GFA) is a charity for families living in Britain who have adopted or are in the process of adopting children from Guatemala.

Our primary goal is to support internationally adopted Guatemalan children to connect with their Guatemalan roots.

We also support two NGOs based in Guatemala. The history of violence against indigenous populations, natural disasters, poverty, and illiteracy can best be dealt with in partnership with Guatemalans.

ALDEA's projects promote self-sufficiency, foster community development, and enhance the education and health of people working to make a better life for their children and communities.

Pueblo a Pueblo's projects respond to the devastating poverty and deprivation in targeted indigenous villages. Projects work to build the community’s ability to thrive on its own while achieving health, food security, and education for local families.

Many GFA families have visited the villages where these two charities are working. They have seen the difference our contributions make. Together, we will make the struggle to survive and be productive a little easier.

Charity No: 1105241
