PROJECT SIMPLE provides meals and clean water to those who cannot or have a hard time providing for themselves. Since 2018 our community center has been able to serve over 35,000 meals in Chajul, one of the poorest areas in Guatemala. We now have a total of 28 people involved in the project including our cooks and those in most need (either young, orphans, elderly, or ill). Each person involved in the project has been hand selected and invited to join by their fellow community members. Our project is actively investing in the community, creating local jobs, serving food to those in need, and providing a safe space for those involved to socialize and relax for a moment.
With the help of monthly donations we are able to sustain the community center in Chajul, Guatemala. A special thanks to everyone involved. With our current donations we are able to offer meals to 26 people as well as our 2 cooks. To learn more about the financial details and steps taken to begin the project, please click here.
- Growth -
Proper nutrition is important at all stages of life. Healthy eating habits help maintain and aid in the physical and mental growth. A strong healthy immune system can help prevent and fight off illness.
- Development -
Nutrient dense meals are vital to brain development affecting ones cognitive skills, ability to focus, absorb, develop, and retain information. In consequence the need for children to consume nutritious food, especially those under the age of 5, is valued as high priority.
- Security -
Food security is a privilege and often an uncommon occurrence for many. We feel that by providing this to those in most need, we can offer relief, gifting the chance of choice, offering opportunity, and a taste of individual freedom.
EVERY $1 HELPS
There are many on our waitlist to help in Chajul & the surrounding villages. Our goal is to continue to provide weekly meals to 26 and be able to invite more people and open another kitchen! In order to do so, we need to raise at least $600 a month to sustain our work, if you are able, your donations are now tax deductible! We are a volunteer based organization so EVERY PENNY goes directly to the cause.
