During their annual board retreat this past February, a group of Child Aid supporters and board members had the chance to travel to Guatemala and visit schools in four K’iche speaking communities near Lake Atitlán. The group got a first-hand look at how Child Aid’s programs are helping both teachers and students gain new skills and transform their lives. Watch a slideshow of photos from the trip.
Child Aid was the official charity of the 2012 Portland Color Run. Big thanks to everyone at The Color Run, to all of our amazing volunteers, and to the 15,000 people who came out and made the event a huge success. Proceeds from The Color Run will go to our Reading for Life literacy program in Guatemala.
