Community & Family Development

While early childhood education is the foundation of Planting Seeds’ work, we have extended our programs to reach children, youth and families in Zone 3 in Guatemala City.  Zone 3 is home to the repository for one-third of the country’s garbage and where most families earn their income by collecting and selling recyclables.

We are currently running a number of programs in Zone 3 with the aim of engaging youth, strengthening parents’ roles as the primary educators of their children, and engaging community members to be in charge of their own development.
