4-H Central America: Growing the Next Generation of Leaders

Commitment by

Fabretto Children's Foundation

In 2013, the Fabretto Children's Foundation committed to expanding its 4-H Youth Development Program in Nicaragua and Guatemala. This program builds upon the successful 4-H model, which aims to empower youth to reach their full potential through experience-based learning. Fabretto will partner with Share Guatemala and Fundaci?n Nacional de Clubes 4-S from Costa Rica to establish 60 new 4-H clubs across Nicaragua and Guatemala over the course of two years. A total of 60 mentors (group guides) will be trained to lead and empower these groups and 900 students will directly engage and benefit from the 4-H after-school hands-on learning methodology, working on projects that will help them develop practical knowledge in critical areas for their future, including sustainable agriculture, environmental stewardship, small business management, and arts & crafts.
