FUNDAL: Making the world more inclusive @ Rainbow Cafe

FUNDAL provides integral educational and development services without cost to children that have multiple disabilities such as deaf blindness. The nonprofit was founded in 1998 after a Guatemalan family adopted a child with deafblindness and realized how few resources existed for people with multiple disabilities. To ensure a more visible and inclusive future, they founded FUNDAL. Through its two facilities in the capital and Xela as well as through it distance program, FUNDAL offers children sign language instruction, physical therapy, vocational training, and family counseling, among other services. Over the past 20 years, FUNDAL has provided more than 3,000 scholarships to its students and trained around 15,000 teachers in workshops.
