Over half of the Guatemalan population lives below the poverty line & only 20% of children ever reach high school. But we believe that when doors open, lives change.

We believe in education.

We believe in employment.

We believe in opportunity.

What we don’t believe is that any of these things should depend on where you’re from.

That’s why we believe in life-changing relationships that create sustainable opportunities.

This is Project Apoyo.

APOYO means “support” in Spanish, and it’s our mission to be that helping hand on the path to stronger communities.
We believe this starts with EDUCATION + EMPLOYMENT.

Here's how you can help

OUR 100% PROMISE

We are passionate about our 100% model that gives every single cent given for sponsorships and business opportunities directly to students, schools, families and communities. On top of your generous gift, we believe in truly connecting you to make real, lasting change in Guatemalan communities. With Project Apoyo, it’s not just a monthly donation and a magnet on your refrigerator. It’s a commitment to changing lives through education + employment opportunities.

STUDENT SPONSORSHIPS

Opening the door to education opens up a world of opportunity. We are so proud to partner with the Education for the Children Foundation to create that opportunity. Students you sponsor will attend their School of Hope until high school where they will then continue to be sponsored through the assistance of their Further Education program. We believe in their mission to break the cycle of poverty!

MICRO-BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES

We refuse to let a lack of resources determine someone’s opportunity. Through our micro-business program, families and students have the chance to not only receive financial assistance through your generosity, but also business mentoring from our team and local leaders (as well as you)! We are committed to creating opportunities for lasting employment.

CLASSROOM SPONSORSHIP

We believe students are only as strong as the teachers in front of them. For that reason, we take the extra step of offering entire classroom sponsorships as well. In our one-year program, teachers will undergo intensive professional development & earn much-needed classroom supplies as well. We believe our impact can multiply by creating strong teachers, thus creating strong students!
