The Guatemalan Families Association (GFA) is a charity for families living in Britain who have adopted or are in the process of adopting children from Guatemala.
Our primary goal is to support internationally adopted Guatemalan children to connect with their Guatemalan roots.
We also support charities based in Guatemala. The history of violence against indigenous populations, natural disasters, poverty, and illiteracy can best be dealt with in partnership with Guatemalans.
ALDEA's projects promote self-sufficiency, foster community development, and enhance the education and health of people working to make a better life for their children and communities. Many GFA families have visited the villages where the charities are working. They have seen the difference our contributions make. Together, we will make the struggle to survive and be productive a little easier.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
