Paso Por Paso is a grass-roots community based non profit organization that helps low-resource Mayan families living in the beautiful highlands of Guatemala.
The organization is based in Orillia, Canada and operates fund raising events in Orillia and the surrounding area. Over the last 15 years, through the generous donations of Canadians, the charity raised over half a million dollars to support our programs in Guatemala.
In 2005, Hurricane Stan hit Guatemala and all of Central America. The devastation was incredible and whole towns and villages were cut off by mudslides and floods especially in the poorest and most rural areas in which the Mayan population live.
In 2006, a group of retired Park Street Collegiate teachers visited Guatemala Upon their return to Canada these teachers formed Paso Por Paso to respond to the needs of the Mayan families living in such incredible poverty.
