We are so grateful to everyone who donated to our programs this last year!
Together we made a difference in the lives of over 1,500 families, working alongside our 16 Guatemalan partner villages as they led initiatives toward healthier, stronger communities. Watch this two-minute video to hear directly from people in one of those communities, Cojulyá, about just what our 2018* donors' support has meant to them.

Installing these properly vented, safe, efficient stoves for the 250 families in Xeabaj, Santa Apolonia, was truly a team effort!
As with all our sanitation projects, community members provided basic coordination and oversight, manual labor, locally available building materials, and the full cost of hiring masons for the construction. Our sister organization, Asociación Bpd Guatemala, supervised the project and supported the local development committee in coordinating the process. And in this case the donors from ALDEA's 2018 tour group, who visited Xeabaj in February, provided the remaining resources needed for this project to happen.
