Health Education and Resource Center (Senahu, Guatemala)
2016 has been a rewarding year for World Link partners. In partnership with the NARU Health Project we established a health and resource center in Sehahu, Guatemala. This was the culmination of an 8 year goal of NARU's founder and director, Yvonne Sinclair. The center's purpose is to provide families and children at high risk with health care, nutrition care, education, trainings and also small business development.
The Center serves approximately 1,500 men, women and children.
Community Outreach Training Programs (Alta Verapaz, Guatemala)
In addition to the establishment of the Center, World Link Partners and NARU also expanded its community outreach training programs which takes basic health care, training and education to the isolated rural communities with very limited access to services and education. The focus of the outreach progam is nutrition and health, sanitation and hygiene, water filters, and food production.
The outreach program serves approximately 200 families
The Health Resource Center was made possible primarily by the generous financial support of The Sabin Children's Foundation.
Education for children of the slums (Chitwan, Nepal)
We are working on 2 projects in Nepal: Education for children of the slums and the establishement of a center which will provide education, training and support. Both are in partnership with Eternal Hope Nepal.
What is life like for a child in the slums? Imagine a life where your days are spent scavenging for trash, with open sewer in the streets. This is life for children of the slums in Nepal; particularly for children of the Dalit (untouchable) cast.
In partnership with Eternal Hope Nepal we provide hope for these children: hope of a life beyond the slums.
Eternal Hope Nepal was established in 2012. Its mission is to provide remedial education and hope for children of the slums. This project is one of our most pressing and most in need. It was developed to educate and give hope to the deprived children of the slums in the Chitwan district of Nepal . Dr. Majarjan and her staff of 9 founders work primarily as volunteers.
In the first year, 2012-2013, 26 children received education, uniforms, supplies and meals. However this does not begin to meet and address the needs of the number of children awaiting education. There are primarily two problems: lack of funding (primarily for teacher’s salaries). The classroom is provided by the Montesori School.
