Welcome to Las Manos de Christine


Las Manos de Christine is a nonprofit organization that broadens opportunities for local children in the impoverished village of El Hato, Guatemala, by providing health and educations resources to the public school and support for locally-led community development efforts. We have been working in the El Hato school since 2010, after our successful work with Camino Seguro in Guatemala City.

We have numerous programs that continue to run within the school, and we have started and completed many successful projects in the last few years.
