This past July, Ashleigh Garber, LMT of Mindful Living and Wellness here at Brownstone Station visited Tree 4 Hope in Guatemala - a charitable organization close to her heart.
Tree 4 Hope is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to providing a bright future of long-term hope for children, elders, and their families in Guatemala and around the world through educational, health, and mental wellness outreach programs.
From Tree 4 Hope's Website:
Tree 4 Hope operates Hope Academy—a STEAM-based, Spanish and English bilingual school for girls with support for Kaqchikal, the indigenous Mayan language of the region, and hands-on internships at local businesses—in Santa Lucia Milpas Altas. The school grew from one kindergarten classroom in 2019 at the Miguel Magone orphanage to a new, modern school building with 67 girls in pre-K through Grade 6.
Why is this important? “We meet our girls where they are. Through Spanish we prepare them for life and work in their community; through English we connect them to a global world; through Kaqchikal we ground them in the traditions of their culture.”
