This project will work with Asociacion Guatemalteca para el Sindrome de Down to provide training and emotional support to parents of babies and young children with Down syndrome.


The challenge

In Guatemala there is little support or information available for new parents of children with Down syndrome. This means they are often uncertain how to interact with and care for their child.

What we will do

4 months of support and training for 30 parents of children with Down syndrome.

We will work with Asociacion Guatemalteca para el Sindrome de Down to provide 30 parents in Guatemala City with 4 months of support and training. This will cover:

  • Emotional support as they adjust to the news that their child has Down syndrome;
  • Accurate information about Down syndrome;
  • Training on key skills to support the early development of a child with Down syndrome.

Long term impact

Parents with the right skills and knowledge to support their young children with Down syndrome will be able to ensure they thrive and develop into happy, healthy adults who can lead fulfilling lives.
