Primeros Pasos, Quetzaltenango, Guatemala

Primeros Pasos is a community clinic that with the collaboration of health professionals, health educators, volunteers, and community leaders, offers quality and affordable health care and health education to the rural, underserved communities of the Palajunoj Valley of Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.

Their holistic health programmes include:
  • Medical & Dental Services: aims to provide reliable and affordable local health care to adults and children in the Palajunoj Valley.
  • Nutrition: Nutritional Recuperation Project supports chronically malnourished children and pregnant women by providing both medical interventions and health education, in turn improving family health and promoting healthy homes in the Palajunoj Valley.
  • Healthy Schools Program: provides primary students in the Palajunoj Valley with free annual clinical care accompanied by education aimed to encourage life-long healthy habits.
Primeros Pasos came referred to us by one of their donors- Global Fund for Children- who thought they would benefit from the support of a qualified accountant.
