One Clinic, So Many Lives

Imagine as a parent, your little boy has had a fever off and on for days now; he is always tired, and his body aches. You think he has malaria. All he needs is medicine, but you are poor, and can’t even afford to take him to the doctor – much less get him the medicine he needs to get better. But if he doesn’t get help soon, he could end up having breathing problems for the rest of his life. Or worse yet, he could die. You are desperate and feel helpless. This is […]

Professions with a Future

Children Incorporated’s Director of International Programs Luis Bordet recently received a report from our affiliate Colegio Vida (Life School) at the Juan Apostol School in Villa Nueva, just outside of Guatemala City; with the help of contributions from our sponsors and donors, 103 high school graduates of the Juan Apostol School graduated in 2015 with Colegio Vida certifications that will help put them on the path to professions with a future. Cross-culturally, one of the greatest challenges to graduates is the practical application of academic knowledge. With its motto being “An Institution Created to Make a […]
