ONE FAMILY'S CAN IMPACT ANOTHER'S ACROSS THE
HELPING CHILDREN & FAMILIES IN GUATEMALA
How You Can Make a Difference.
We offer a variety of ways for you to make a positive and long-lasting impact in the lives of children and families in Guatemala from a financial donation or sponsorship, to participating on a rewarding and life-changing mission trip. All contributions go directly to benefiting our various outreach projects and activities throughout Guatemala, and now Venezuela.
Since the For the Love of Mateo started, it has grown its support from a single orphanage to over ten outreach projects / or associations in Guatemala and now Venezuela.
Upcoming Mission Trips.
Valerie Edwards, the founder of For the Love of Mateo, primarily wanted to start her non-for-profit to support the children at the orphanage from where her son, Mateo, was adopted.
As For the Love of Mateo has expanded, our mission has grown into serving and supporting many outreach projects that we like to call our “Missions of Love.” These missions includes supporting educational projects such as schools and after- school programs that provide scholarships for children to have the ability to change their circumstances and stop the cycle of poverty. "Missions of Love" also support nursing homes, orphanages, teen mom homes, HIV-positive homes, homeless projects, educating and supporting mothers in learning a trade to help provide for their families and also various forms of community outreach.
Due to the fluctuating circumstances related to COVID-19, we will continue to keep an eye on any restrictions which may have an impact on mission trips and keep you updated accordingly.
