XelaAID empowers children and their families to break the cycle of poverty and to become healthy, educated and self reliant. They aspire to ensure that every child in the highlands of Guatemala is educated and every family is safe, healthy, well-nourished, and has opportunities to prosper; and to profoundly enrich the lives of our volunteers.
