A Community of Support

Each year, MOGUATE attendees will have the opportunity to participate in fundraising activities to support an amazing charity:

Their name might have changed, but their mission hasn't. Behrhorst Partners for Development is now ALDEA.

From ALDEA's website (click the photo above for the link to their website): 

We organize our work around one overarching objective: to reduce chronic childhood malnutrition in Mayan communities.

The cornerstone of our programs is empowerment.
We develop the leadership and problem-solving skills of women, men, and youth to address both the dietary and environmental root causes of childhood malnutrition. We focus on preventing malnutrition from occurring in the first place by emphasizing good nutrition
during the first 1000 days – the short window of opportunity that includes pregnancy and the first two years of a child’s life. Helping communities provide good nutrition and a healthy environment during this critical window of opportunity provides a lifetime of lasting benefits to children.

Sonya Fultz, ALDEA Board member, will do a presentation on Saturday night about the work that is done in Guatemala and how MOGUATE can help. In January of the past two years (2016 & 2017), a group of MOGUATE Mamas went to Guatemala to see, first hand, the work that ALDEA is doing. All of the photos on this page were taken during that trip.

More details will be available at MOGUATE. 

Thanks for your help in supporting this AWESOME charity!
