Mil Milagros Communications Coordinator (Somerville, MA)
Mil Milagros, Inc. is a high-impact non-profit organization, founded in 2007 and based in Somerville, Massachusetts and Sololá, Guatemala (offices in Panajachel and Santa Lucía Utatlán) that equips mothers and teachers with skills and resources to improve the lives of children and families in rural Guatemala.
Today, 50% of children in Guatemala are malnourished, with rates exceeding 70% in rural communities like those where MM works, and only 51% of children graduate from sixth grade in rural areas. MM is fundamentally changing these odds by engaging and partnering with mother, teacher, and child leaders to serve 1,500 children through community-based early childhood development, nutrition, health/hygiene, and education programs. To date, we have trained more than 1,600 leaders to improve the health and education of children and families in their communities.
