When you make a financial donation, it goes directly to paying these important expenses:


  • Staff salaries (6 staff members);

  • Food for the children's lunches and snacks (48 children);

  • Water filters (for the school and for each family home); 

  • Other such as supplies and materials for building maintenance/improvements, classroom supplies, teacher training, learning materials, etc.

Every gift, no matter how big or small, makes a lasting difference in the lives of the children and families in Panyebar.  In addition to donated funds, SaludosNiños! welcomes gifts of toys, books, backpacks, teaching tools, shoes and clothes.



SaludosNiños! depends entirely on generous contributions from our supporters plus the proceeds from the sale of Guatemalan handicrafts in Canada and the U.S. Brian and Sheila - our Co-Founders - cover the annual cost of rent for our school so every dollar donated to SaludosNiños! goes directly toward the early learning and nutrition program.
