Introducing TOMS Giving Partner Children International

July 22nd, 2014 by TOMS

This season, we’re taking you on a journey with us through Guatemala. Last spring, a TOMS team of employees headed into the field to explore, adventure and most of all, learn about the incredible work our Giving Partners in shoes, sight and water are doing every day to help improve communities and the lives of people who live in them. Today, we’d like for you to meet Children International, a Shoe Giving Partner in Guatemala.

8X3A5120

8X3A4602

Children International began working in Guatemala in 1979. They currently serve the needs of nearly 340,000 impoverished children and youth worldwide, including more than 30,000 in Guatemala. At the organization’s community centers, children receive access to health services, educational assistance and material benefits — like TOMS Shoes — designed to help them become healthy, educated and self-reliant adults.

“The biggest impact that CI has lies in giving children and youth the potential to be Guatemalans with the tools they need to win the battle against poverty,” Ana Maria, Children International’s Guatemala director, shared. “Through the combination of health services, education opportunities and life and job skills, our children can become young adults with the capacity to be better people, have better families, and break the cycle of underdevelopment in their communities.”

“TOMS Shoes help children and youth to have an essential tool for their education and health,” she said.

In these community centers, caring and dedicated staff and volunteers nurture these children, who often live in dangerous neighborhoods. The centers offer confidence-building programs that teach adolescents how to avoid negative influences, lead healthy lifestyles, practice financial responsibility and use skills like problem-solving, teamwork, leadership and civic engagement to improve their lives and communities.
