Hope for a Better Future

This is Maria's daughter. Maria is our first client, and is the reason our program was founded. Her needs for food and housing were urgent after the abandonment by her husband. Without an education, Maria had no way to earn more than a few dollars a week. Unfortunately, her situation is common in rural Guatemala. Thanks to a few generous donors, we are now in the process of building a home for this family. They are beginning to believe that they can have faith in a better future. The children are now in school. Our facilitators, Fabiola and Vinicio deliver food staples, and FFF has purchased land that is deeded to Maria. Maria's daughter has a reason to smile.
