What is PROAES
- This is a program of student support where a nutritious breakfast is provided everyday to help the education of the children and to support the scholastic needs of each child. It also supports the spiritual and moral instruction of each child.
When the Program was Established
The PROAES started their work in March of 2004 by the motivation of concerned people who wanted to help the children of Guatemala with limited resources.
In the Guatemalan society there is a large group of people with limited resources. They cannot provide the nutritional or educational needs of their children. This results in Children dropping out of school prematurely and then participating in antisocial behavior.
To maintain a high educational level of each child.
To provide a nutritious breakfast to help them function at a higher level.
To prevent the participation of children in antisocial activities by giving friendship and role models.
To provide them with tools to meet these goals.
To have young people who will be an example to others.
To offer moral and spiritual growth.
To offer Guatemala the opportunity to have future citizens with values and principals.
To diminish the percentage of children who will enlist themselves in antisocial groups.
To improve the quality of life of each child and the future families formed by them.
