HOW DO WE HELP THEM?
Our founder, Father Nicholas Amico, believed everyone plays a part in solving proverty, even the impoverished and oppressed.  OCIMA provides education, housing and nutrition to many impoverished and oppressed people in Guatemala and Ecuador.

Providing an education to the poor builds up the community and knowledge helps people to find their own solutions to problems versus simple receiving handouts.  Many students who graduate from our school go back to their villages and surrounding communities as ambassadors, teachers and nurses.

But education alone isn't enough, it's imperative the poor  have access to the basic neccesities, clean water, housing and nutrition.  Through many of OCIMA's programs, we are able to provide those basic necessities, that is why your donation is so important and why every penny that comes in makes a difference.   Learn about our Projects and How To Help; your Donation will make a significant difference.
