The Children We Serve

Every child should feel safe and loved.

But in Guatemala, countless boys and girls are orphaned, abandoned and afraid.

CHILDREN IN CRISIS

These orphans and wards of the state have experienced incredible trauma:

  • Abandoned by mothers unable to take care of them
  • Neglected by parents caught in addiction
  • Orphaned by violence or disease
  • Abused by adults who should have cared for them

The plight of these vulnerable children is heartbreaking.
But your support can lift them beyond trauma to LIFE!

The first 1,000 days of life are vital

as children begin to understand their world.

A REFUGE OF SAFETY AND LOVE

Child Beyond is strategically positioned to help infants and preschool children in their crucial first 1,000 days of life, when they begin to understand their world:

  • Is the world a safe place?
  • Can I trust people?
  • Will my needs be met?
  • Am I loved?

If the answer is “no”, a young child is reduced to “survival mode”. They may withdraw or act out in anger. They may have trouble bonding with or trusting people. They will not mature emotionally beyond their point of trauma. They will likely repeat the cycle of abuse, addiction and heartache as adults.

Your support gives children safety and healing

that sets them on a path for a positive, trusting and successful life.
