Yalu Community Partnership
Nestled at the end of a long and winding road, amidst the picturesque rolling hills outside of Sumpango, Guatemala, you'll discover the humble village of Yalu. In Yalu, a harsh reality prevails—nearly all of its villagers endure unimaginable poverty.
Since 2014, El Amor de Patricia has forged a powerful partnership with Yalu, one built upon the pillars of trust, loyalty, and friendship. We take a holistic approach to addressing Yalu's challenges and empower individuals, families, and the community with opportunities. From providing crucial food subsidies to offering the comfort of a home to tackling larger issues like access to clean water and employable skills, we listen attentively to the voices of the people, ensuring that the solutions facilitated are not only impactful but also deeply rooted in the needs and aspirations of the community.
El Amor de Patricia's story in Yalu is one of collaboration, unwavering commitment, and making a real impact on those in need.
Since El Amor de Patricia started working in Yalu, the boys in Yalu boys have shown great interest in helping their community and leading by example with hope and determination for a brighter future. They show up regularly to help El Amor deliver food baskets, set up beds and stoves, and are always wanting to help.
The Yalu Boys are eager to learn skills to enhance their ability to help their neighbors, keep the roads clean, and be good stewards of the community.
