The Story of Alex


Alex was unable to
walk, talk or hold
his head up when
we first visited his
home. After three
months in our first
kindergarten he
is sitting by himself,
walking and we expect
his first words
any day now!

Building a Brighter Future!
In April 2012 will be helping us reach
our goal of 50 supporters so that we can open a new
Kindergarten Project in Guatemala. 

GlobalGiving is a charity fundraising web site, who along
with their corporate backers such as Dell, Google and
Nike has raised over $62 million for non-profit projects.

Empowering Women in Guatemala

Blanca Lysmenia Flores (Lys) is the director of the project
Semilla de Esperanza y Amor (Seed of Hope and Love)
located in San Mateo Milpas Altas, Guatemala. She is a
strong and compassionate leader in a world here that is
dominated by men. Her background is in education,
yet she never thought about being the principal of her
own non-profit.

When we first met Lys in 2010, we were volunteering
for another local non-profit, CasaSito. They asked us to offer
Lys some business training and coaching. The idea was to
help her grow from a little project with just one classroom
and a small office, into a much bigger and brand new
location...  Read the rest of the story of Lys here

25 New Integral Students
A new year of philosophy classes has begun.
We have 36 teenagers in two locations who
will be with us for the next two years!

We first started the year with a pre-test to gauge
the psychological/emotional states of our students
and now we are focusing the basics of critical
thinking, such as the origin of self and effects of
cultural conditioning on individual choice. The
kids are simply loving it. To read more about
the Integral Education program click here.

the profiles of our newest teenagers here.
