75% of Guatemalans live below the poverty line. This makes something as seemingly simple as going to school extremely difficult for many families.

THANK YOU!
We don't know where to begin, but we cannot thank everyone enough for their support last night at our 4th annual fundraiser!

Bedell Cellars was, as always, a gracious host, and Riva Packard and her team were amazing! We couldn't have pulled this off without them. Points East was a hit, as was the fun and funky North Fork Photobooth Company. Thank you to American Beech, Lombardi's Love Lane Market, North Fork Table and Inn, Grace and Grit, First And South, Stirling Sake, Bay Breeze Inn & Bistro, and Lucharitos for providing delicious food for all of our guests, and of course the table with authentic Guatemalan food! Jon Schusteritsch took some amazing photos for us as well. We'd also like to thank all of the local businesses that donated wonderful items for the raffle and silent auction. A special thank you goes out to northforker for their support and joining us!

We also have to thank our team, including our fearless leader Jazmin Carrillo, photographer Dave Benthal, and volunteers Alice Mirra and Rachel Bosworth.

In case you missed it, here's a video from our last trip! Check out David Benthal Photography for more of his amazing work.

That's awesome!

Education in Guatemala is unobtainable to many children.

ClassroomThe mission of  Programa Sueños is to make quality education accessible to all children. We believe that through education we can encourage children to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of those around them. It is our belief that when a child is given the tools to dream they can change the world. 

 

 

 

“Dreams are achieved through education”

grandpaPrograma Sueños is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization responsible for assisting and promoting education for low-income children in San Antonio el Angel, Guatemala. Our goal is to provide students with the tools they need to succeed in school. Our effort to help the children of San Antonio El Angel achieve their dreams through education, is dedicated with love to my dear grandfather Eusebio Ochoa Oliva, as a small recognition of his lifelong dedication and passion for helping his community. We are humbled and deeply grateful for the good example he has set for us all.

    Jazmin, I just read your story in news day and I am so touched by your heart of compassion and willingness to give so much to help the children of San Antonio el angel. I am not Guatemalan but have a great love for the people and the country of Guatemala. I have been there seven times since 2007 and will be there again on February 4th. I first went there as a Spanish student and made friends that I now look forward to visiting each year. I mainly stay in Antigua but if I have an opportunity I’d like to get to know more of the country. It is a beautiful place with beautiful people. Thank you for all you are doing. I live in Nassau county which is far from matti tuck but If there is anything I can do to help your programa sueños besides donating (which I just did) please let me know what I can do.
    Thank you again!
    Lorena

    Dear Jazmin,

    I also read the newsday article today. I am married to a Chapina. I have visited Guatemala many times in the last 22 years.
    It fills my heart with happiness and pride to see what you are doing. I am very interested in finding a way to contribute besides money (which I will do).
    You are a special person.

    Michael
