AMG Wealth Management are delighted to sponsor a little girl called Jessica in Guatemala, supporting the incredible charity ‘Education for the Children Foundation’ (ETFC). 

EFTC is an international NGO that works in partnership with disadvantaged families, children and young adults in Guatemala, Central America.  ETFC work to break the cycle of poverty through education and empowerment.  Guatemala is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere with shocking rates of violence, illiteracy and malnutrition.  The charities vision is for children and young people from impoverished backgrounds to be provided with quality education and empowered to become motivated, confident and employable.  Moving on to further education and rewarding employment will improve their quality of life and help them break free from the cycle of poverty that has blighted generations in this area.  ETFC’s hope is that they will become leaders of change in their communities and inspire future generations.  The charity’s ‘School of Hope’ is located in Jocotenango, Guatemala: an urban area where extreme poverty, gang crime, domestic violence and alcoholism are everyday realities.  Food, healthcare, counselling and career guidance at the school remove obstacles to education and enable students to realise their potential.

ETFC had asked if we would kindly like to make a donation for a Christmas gift for Jessica.  AMG happily made a donation enabling the charity to provide a gift for Jessica, a food parcel for her family, a pizza party for her class and food parcels for other families in need over Christmas.

All the team at AMG were overjoyed to receive the latest update that Jessica and her entire grade had enjoyed a wonderful pizza party to finish the school year and family food hampers for those that were most in need were distributed during the Christmas/holiday season.
