NGO Lectures

The Rainbow became an important meeting place for local non-profits and NGOs over 11 years ago when the Evening Lectures /NGO Talks first began. The idea of the lectures/talks is to be a link between the NGO and people interested in getting involved with the great projects that work towards making a better Guatemala.

Every talk we host increases a NGOs public exposure as well as the probability that someone attending may decide to volunteer, donate money or fundraise for the charity.  Since hosting the first talk (Sue Patterson´s) we´ve had more than 50 local non-profits and NGO´s presenting!

A donation of Q25 is asked for to each person attending the talk, the donation given goes directly to the presenting NGO.

ARCAS: Rescuing Guatemalan Wildlife

The Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Association (ARCAS) is the leading advocate for the rights of wild animals in Guatemala.  In the Department of Peten, it manages one of the largest and most success wildlife rescue centers in the world, receiving 300-600 animals of 40+ species per year, the majority confiscated from wildlife traffickers.

Since the establishment of the Rescue Center in Peten, ARCAS has branched out into other very necessary activities including environmental education, protected areas management, marine turtle conservation, sustainable community development, ecotourism and reforestation. ARCAS’s three main project sites are: the Guatemala City area, the remote northern department of Petén, and the Hawaii area of the southern Pacific Coast.

AYUVI: Saving Guatemalan Children with Cancer 

The diagnosis of cancer in a child or teenager is devastating news for the whole family. AYUVI mobilizes the support and required resources to sustain the National Pediatric Oncology Unit Hospital –UNOP-, the only national hospital specialized in the treatment of pediatric cancer in Guatemala.

During the last 17 years, our hospital has diagnosed over 5,000 children with cancer. About 70% of our patients come from poor/rural backgrounds and 50% of them suffer from some degree of malnutrition when diagnosed.

Come and learn about our efforts to save the lives of children with cancer!
