What We Do
Planting Seeds is promoting a new educational way of being in Guatemala. Through Plantando Semillas’ programs, students build compassion, self-esteem, creativity, and love for themselves and others through a series of positive interactions and self-directed and teacher guided learning opportunities.
At the same time, Planting Seeds recognizes the importance of strengthening the family and community a child grows up in. Planting Seeds is broadening its focus to involve communities and families in their own development. In the community of Zone 3, where a majority of community members work in the city’s garbage dump as their means of employment, Plantando Semillas is developing a community center to best meet the needs of the families in this area.
