Summer volunteers are making a big difference at Open Windows

At Open Windows, we greatly benefit from the help of volunteers who are medical professionals.  Dr. Dian travels to Open Windows Guatemala several times per year to help Open Windows children with medical problems.

Pictured above is Dr. Dian.  Dr. Dian has been visiting Open Windows for years, and he recently completed another visit to Guatemala in which he cared for numerous Open Windows children.  
 Dr. Dian has been instrumental in assisting Open Windows in providing medical care to children in our program.  Medical volunteers make a huge difference in the lives of our children.  

Our Co-Founder, Maria Teresa Quinonez, posed for this picture with a young child named Andrea.  As a result of Dr. Dian's visits several years ago, he discovered a heart abnormality present in her system.  Andrea had heart surgery several years ago, and now she is growing up and living a normal life.  Two weeks ago, she had her first communion, where this picture was taken.  Dr. Dian was able to share in the happiness, excitement, and gratitude of this important occasion in Andrea's life.  

Dr. Dian is evidence that volunteers really do change the world for the children in our program.

It's not only international volunteers who make a difference at Open Windows.  Mothers of our Open Windows children also provide the Open Windows library and after school children's program significant support.  Mothers assist in providing healthy snacks to the children who participate in our programs so that youth can get the crucial vitamins and nutrients that they might not otherwise receive at home.  

Whether it's providing medical care, or helping to distribute nutritious snacks, volunteers from near and far make Open Windows a successful educational enrichment foundation and NGO.

Dentists will arrive in June to make a difference at Open Windows

This month, we are happy to welcome a new group of volunteers at Open Windows.  Soon, a group of dentists will arrive in Antigua.  These dentists will volunteer with our foundation for one week. They will be giving dental cleanings to children at Open Windows, and even better, will be providing children with a much needed application of fluoride. Our dentist volunteers will also be helping children with difficult dental problems by partnering with a  dentist in Antigua.  

At Open Windows, volunteers help the children and families of our community receive the services they so greatly need.  We appreciate the hard work and dedication of our volunteers!

If you wish to learn more about volunteer opportunities with our foundation, we invite you to make a difference with our foundation today.  Please email Teresa Quinonez at for more information.
