Gerson Osvaldo

It takes ONE person (like you!) to make a huge difference in Gerson Osvaldo's life. By sponsoring him, you're creating Team Gerson Osvaldo and giving him a chance to break the cycle of poverty. Your $36 monthly gift is invested in his future and the lives of children like him in Guatemala. 

And supporting a teen is important because they’re at higher risk for exposure to gangs, pregnancy, drugs and more. Your encouragement will give hope and confidence during a crucial time in their lives.

Poverty in Guatemala

Kids growing up in poverty in Guatemala face some of the toughest issues, such as a massive wealth gap, gang violence and high crime rates, difficulty staying in school, lack of jobs, chronic malnutrition and a high teen pregnancy rate.

That's why we focus on providing educational assistance to stay in school, a wide range of programs in our centers to learn and grow in a safe environment, youth leadership opportunities, fundamental nutrition support and reproductive health programs.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
