HOW YOU CAN HELP
SaludosNiños! depends entirely on generous contributions from our supporters plus the proceeds from sales in Canada and the U.S. of traditional Guatemalan handcrafts and Panyebar jewelry and ornaments. Since the facilities in Panyebar are made available rent free by a local family, every dollar donated to SaludosNiños! goes directly toward maintaining and improving the early learning and nutrition program.
As of 2018, the annual operating budget for SaludosNiños! is $27,000 Canadian dollars. The monthly budget of $2,270 breaks down as follows:
$ 725 - for 5 teachers’ salaries
$ 1,250 - for purchase of food for 55 -60 children
$ 45 - for needed supplies, materials and miscellaneous expenses
$ 60 - for water filters (we are committed to providing filters to each individual family home as our medical clinics prove that these filters significantly improve health
You can make a lasting difference in the lives of the children in Panyebar. This project receives NO corporate sponsorships and relies primarily on individual donations from people like YOU. Please help - your contribution is so greatly appreciated!
