I dream of a Guatemala where all children are safe. I dream of a Guatemala where kids do not have their childhood stolen from them. I dream of a Guatemala where every child has loving adults around to protect them. Where no child must face abuse, neglect, malnutrition, or separation from family. And while I do not know if I will see this Guatemala in my lifetime, I know one thing for sure. El Amor de Patricia will be here. El Amor de Patricia is dedicated to our children. To Yalu. El Amor de Patricia is access to education, medical care, healthy nutrition, and therapy. El Amor de Patricia is safety. It is home. It is love. ~ Kahleah Guibault, Director El Amor de Patricia
El Amor de Patricia’s children’s home, nestled in the heart of San Lucas, Sacatepequez, is a safe haven for abandoned, abused, and neglected children who are loved, appreciated, and encouraged to reach their full potential in a family-style setting. Our home provides stability, healthy nutrition, private education, and comprehensive medical, psychological, and dental care, in a safe and empowering holistic environment. El Amor includes activities that foster a deep appreciation for the Guatemalan culture and offer real-life experiences that enhance our children’s lives in mind, body, and spirit. With a low nanny/child ratio, the kids receive individualized care and an abundance of love.
