Greetings from Guatemala and all of us at the Integral Heart Foundation. 2012 is being a great year of
growth for us with the new kindergarten opened in June and two large solar installations thus far.
We are most grateful to you all! Debora, Mick, Liz, Reinhard, and all the team at IHF.
Our First Board Meeting


On September 10, 2012 we held our first board meeting.
We all connected for over an hour and a half without a glitch.
Our staff members, Liz Flinn, Sponsor Liaison and Reinhard
Prosch, Business Operations Manager gave their reports on
the Sponsorship, Kindergarten, and College Teens programs.
Debora Prieto, co-founder, updated the board on the current
state of Integral Education Program and Mick Quinn, co-
founder, had the latest news on our finances, cash reserves,
and projections for the rest of this year (see details below).
We are most grateful to our board for their stellar support
of our work!
Meet the board


As Joey from Friends used to say; Hi you doin'!?
Our answer is GREAT! So far this year our donations have
increased by 50% over the entirety last year. We are quite
happy with this development. With projected revenues
from our dedicated supporters and planned events for the
rest of this year we are expecting about a $21,000 shortfall
in our overall goal for 2012. Now, considering the growth
we have seen, this might not sound like much, but this
amount is critical, especially in three key areas; College
Teens and Sponsorship Program and Integral Curriculum
Development. To help close the gap.

The Magic of Sponsorship
One of the roles of our Sponsor Liaison, Liz Flinn, is to foster
a heart-to-heart relationship between our children and our
sponsors. Here is just one shining example of this; between
Jessica Roemischer and her sponsor child Katy, seen here
during a video-skype with Jessica, who said; "I had a wonderful
meeting
with Katy yesterday. She's starting to look like a young
woman!  She is
doing better in school she passed all but one
course this last term. She looked happy and was very happy that
her mom was with
her now and that they were both there on
the call. Liz is doing a great job helping me with translation
and
arranging these sessions!!! Thanks so much for making
this
wonderful relationship possible. "

You can also sponsor a child


Building a Brighter Future - Update!!
In April 2012, GlobalGiving.org helped us reach our goal
of raising over $12,000 so that we could open a second
kindergarten location quite near our home to benefit
local children who are in need of nutrition, love and play.

Our second kindergarten, in Jardins d'Antigua opened in
July of this year. The solar installation, thanks to MarySue
Hansell and A Better World on Facebook, was also installed
at that time by our trusted local suppliers, Quetsol.

Our great thanks to Chris and Elizabeth!


Christopher Porto and Elizabeth Schorn rode 300 miles as
part of the Climate Ride 2012 Fundraiser to support the
expansion of our solar light program. Known as Project
Aurora
, this initiative raised over $5,800 to help us deploy
solar powered lighting in both homes and schools. In
partnership with Sun Power Foundation and One Million
Lights, Project Aurora will use donations received to
source and install solar systems for those facing energy
poverty in the hopes of enabling young minds to create
a cleaner and brighter future for us all.

Congratulations and thanks from all of us at IHF!!!
