Making dreams come true through music! These lucky students are learning to play the violin by a music teacher who travels 4 hours from Guatemala City 3 days a week! We're inspired by his dedication, and thankful to see these kids learn a new skill. These smiling faces is what it's all about! 🎻 ... See MoreSee Less

The design for our Sueños School is slowly coming together! This building will host more than 300 kids. We have certain students that commute up to 3 hours to get to school each day. With our brand new building, we hope to be able to provide better facilities and quality education. We are one step closer! Any suggestions or ideas are always welcome. ... See MoreSee Less

Across Guatemala, 30% of children are married before the age of 18. That means rather than going to college Guatemalan youth are more likely to be getting a job or taking care of house or even starting a family ... See MoreSee Less

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
