Serving the Underserved - Guatemala 2017

Softengine supports underserved children in Guatemala

Here at Softengine, we constantly strive to be more than ordinary. We strive to be a business with heart and compassion. We strive to come together to do good in our global community. We are constantly overjoyed when we see these values shine in our employees.

This past January, Softengine proudly sponsored our very own customer service manager, David Glickman’s mission trip to Guatemala. For the third year in a row, we helped Glickman travel to San Antonio Aguas Calientes where he and his group were able to help local, underserved children prepare for the upcoming school year, set to start mid-January.

Most families in the area cannot afford enough school supplies for all their children. As a result, many do not get the opportunity to attend school. Nonprofit Nueva Generación addresses this need by providing children who earn a 75% grade point average or higher with the supplies they need and school performance assessments.

Parents receive education on the importance of clean water. Parents receive education on the importance of clean water.

Each year, Nueva Generación teams up with Temple Beth Or and Congregation Kol Ami, where Glickman serves on the Board of Trustees, to lend a helping hand. This year, with the support of Softengine, our clients and other amazing organizations, the participants in San Antonio Aguas Calientes received 50 backpacks, 40 pairs of sneakers, art supplies, 35 children's books and enough basic school supplies for all 91 children. As well, families received toys, styling gel, makeup, 65 Ecofiltro water purification systems, t-shirts and power bars.

Children participate in a day camp full of play and activities. Children participate in a day camp full of play and activities.

We at Softengine are so proud of David and the incoming success of the children of San Antonio Aguas Calientes. We are grateful to our clients for coming together with us to do this bit of good. We truly are better together.

Glickman with the families. Glickman with the families.
