"For I know the plans I have for you..."
Driven by a passion to give hope to the orphans and vulnerable children in Guatemala, Fundaniños was established 22 years ago. Today, we serve children who have been victims of some form of abuse, ranging from neglect to physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse, giving priority to groups of siblings. We are constantly striving to provide a place for our kids to become Christian, Happy and Independent individuals.
Fundaniños is a home founded on Christian principals. Our team, through all we do, works to demonstrate the Gospel in both word and deed. Our desire is to encourage the children to build lifelong relationships with God, and walk in fellowship with Him, founding their lives in Christian principals.
Our home is a safe place that provides for the physical and emotional needs of each of the children here. Given the troubled backgrounds of our children, we operate with the understanding that many of the children do not come from emotionally stable pasts and often live in a state of constant alertness or defensiveness. Our hope is that their time here will be joyful and contrast with the many hardships they have faced in their lives.
In an effort to guide the children to become adults who can take care of themselves, we want to lay foundation stones such as empowering their individual life stories. We work with them to develop a life plan, evaluate their interests, expose them to learning opportunities, and develop life skills necessary to sustain themselves. We place an increased focus on independence as they enter their teenage years, and walk alongside each young adult, guiding them as they step out on their own.
