Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos Guatemala Charity Profile
In 1954, a boy was arrested for stealing from the poor box of a small church in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. The young priest in charge, Father William Wasson of the United States, was unwilling to press charges against this "thief." Instead, he asked for custody of the boy. One week later, the judge sent him eight more homeless boys. By year's end, 32 boys were in residence and Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH), Spanish for "Our Little Brothers and Sisters," was born.
Over 15,000 children have grown up in the NPH family, which now operates homes in seven additional countries: Honduras, Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic and in Peru. Today, over 2,800 children are being cared for in a loving, secure environment.
Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos is a charitable organization serving orphaned and abandoned children in Latin America and the Caribbean. Its mission is to provide shelter, food, clothing, healthcare and education in a Christian family environment based on unconditional acceptance and love, sharing, working and responsibility.
A worldwide community of donors, staff and volunteers enables NPH to help the children become caring and productive citizens in their countries.
Since 1954, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) has cared for thousands of orphaned and abandoned children. The first home opened in Mexico, later followed by homes in Honduras, Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Peru and Bolivia. To date, over 15,000 children have been cared for by this unique and loving family.
Through the generosity of a worldwide network of support organizations, the children are provided with food, clothing, shelter, medical care and an education. "An education," states founder Fr. William B. Wasson, "will take my children out of the poverty into which they were born."
Children of all ages are embraced by this loving family, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, which in English means "Our Little Brothers and Sisters." Some have been abandoned. Others have lost one or both parents and have no one to care for them. Many have physical and emotional scars that eventually heal as they begin to trust their new family.
Through the principles of love, security, sharing, work and responsibility, the children begin to thrive. A careful balance of these five principles helps the children succeed and live in harmony.
