What We Do

Planting Seeds International Canada works directly with Plantando Semillas in Guatemala to ensure the positive implementation of the following activities.

Planting Seeds International USA: works to raise funds and awareness to support the programs in Guatemala operated by the Canadian Corporation.


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.
