My name is Manichanh, I am a part of a small group of health care workers whom are passionate about our global community and improving the lives of our fellow person. In addition to providing services locally, we also travel to one of the poorest neighborhoods in Guatemala where we support The School of Hope through Education for the Children. http://www.eftc.org.uk/our-work 

We strive to better communities by empowering those disadvantaged. On October, 2015 a group of us will be traveling to Jocotenango, Guatemala to support this sustainable program that is changing outcomes for hundreds of children. We are covering our travel and all associated expenses. We support this school and local clinics who provide additonal care to the surrounding community at large. We are working to strengthen community ties. We have worked and will continue to work with two local community clinics whom also aid this program.

On November 7th, 2015 we are hosting a fundraiser at the Yakima Sports Center. We will be sharing our stories while hostng a silent auction and games. This will cover the cost of medications, medical treatments, and clinical visits for a unique population of children. Please help us with this fundraiser that will enable hundreds of empoverished children obtain access to healthcare. 

We support children and their future. People (specifically children) are the best investment. We support Escuela Proyecto La Esperanza (The School of Hope) in Jocotenango, Guatemala because of their ideals and accomplishments. In order to improve a population you need empowerment and independence. The proven form has been education.

This school provides that. Furthermore they understand that supporting a child whom faces countless socioeconomic and psychological barriers requires a holistic approach. What these children face on a near daily basis makes all of our life obstacles seem pity.

The staff and volunteers here are committed. It's no secret that I hold teachers and social workers in the highest regard. The people here are an outstanding example of why I feel this way. They genuinely care and love the community in which they are improving. They sacrifice so much for others. This is a long term and sustainable commitment. They aren't going anywhere unless these socioeconomic issues are resolved.

If you are able, please help us and help spread the word. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Please contact me direclty with any questions or concerns.

Best to you all!
