Caras Alegres

Where kids can be kids. 

About us

Caras Alegres was founded in 2004, thanks to the work of two volunteers (Judith Bank & Marcel Van Der Geest) They came to Canton Xeul to do Volunteer and they noticed that here in the community there were a lot of things to do for children. So they started a little daycare for children where they were able to start taking care of them and offering a safe place. 

Since then we have been developing a series of an important project that has had an impact on the community, especially in children´s lives.

Our Projects

This is how we support the community. 


Afternoon Program

The purpose of this project has always been based on stimulating the cognitive areas of children through a series of recreational activities. While we do this, we focus on the development of creative skills, as well as teamwork.    



School dropout is a problem that affects more children every year. Through the APARES scholarships, we want to give the opportunity to the children of the community to continue fighting for their dreams. 


Community Lunchroom

The Community Lunchroom Project in which 65 children between the ages of 3-14 from Canton Xeul, receive a nutritious lunch,  four times a week. We have developed this project to contrast the great problem of malnutrition


Women on the Way

The project has been developed with the purpose of give help to women and children from the community who have been victims of some type o violence. 


Backpacks for tomorrow 

We have been developing this project. It provides help to 70 children who for many reasons their families can´t afford the education supplies that they need to start the school year.
