about us

Manos de niños - Unum GuatemalaManos de niños - Unum Guatemala
Our motto is "together we
are one". We are committed
to the conviction that we can
generate a greater impact by
uniting groups of people and
institutions in a line of work
with the same goal.

Who we are

UNUM was born with the purpose of creating strategic alliances between institutions in order to promote teamwork, and increase efficiency of jobs that are carried out within our country. These strategic alliances are meant to bring together different organizations serving with their expertise to support communities in a holistic way in the areas of nutrition, education, and teaching Christian values and principles.


We are a group of people determined to promote inter-institutional alliances and teamwork between movements and businesses with whom we share the dream of a better and transformed Guatemala. We believe that together we’ll be able to break the cycle of poverty and contribute to the transformation of our country.


To be a role model when it comes to community transformation, which can be replicated inside and outside of the country: intentionally and holistically developing people who we aim to serve and preparing them to live successfully. We want to do this through empowering local people, which will  be our clearest example of personal growth while also inspiring other members of their community.


In 2018, while visiting public schools in various villages around Guatemala, we noticed all of the different necessities in the schools and how much work there is to be done. We believe that through providing training for teachers and nutritional programs for students, we can make a significant change in the fundamental aspects within their communities. We started to contact many organizations and businesses to work together to achieve this goal, helping us achieve a greater success than we could imagine in our first year of operations.

our causes

$1 a day

The donation of $1 will allow a child to have access to a meal and to purified water in the classroom, it will also ensure that teachers within the school are being trained to have proper practices, and children to be exposed to Christian values and principles within the school. This also allows a school infrastructure improvement project for the community.

A dollar a day: niños comiendo - Unum Guatemala

The goal for 2020 is to serve 275,000 meals, serve in new communities, and fully implement the vision of the organization.


$550 a year will guarantee that one student will have access to study high school at their own community without having to commute or spend money on school activities. This will also provide for a meal at their school, textbooks and school supplies.

As an organization, we want to maximize your donations towards the children and ensure that most of your donation will go directly to our $1 a day and scholarship programs. To be able to achieve this, we could appreciate if you can donate directly to our administrative fund so we can cover all the expenses that are related to the daily operation of the organization.
