It's Teachers Appreciation Day and we would like to thank our teachers for their hard work. Our mission is possible thanks to you!

Our teachers are working without pay. Five months ago the local government promised to pay a fair wage but until this day they have not received a single payment. A very sad situation that at the same time motivates us to continue fighting for a better future for our children and their families.

They remind me of where I come from, to appreciate everything that I have, and to work harder for what I want. My next goal is to build a school by the time I am 30 years old.

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
