Los niños se convirtieron en la parte central de la celebración del exitoso convivio navideño de la Asociación Guatemalteca Canadiense, ASOGUATE, llevada a cabo el pasado fin de semana en el Jamaican Banquet Hall de Toronto.
El salón se encontraba ya en su capoacidad máxima a eso de las 8 de la noche cuando hizo su aparición Santa Claus para entregar un regalo de Navidad a cada uno de los niños presentes.
La felicidad de los pequeños quedó reflejada en sus caritas de alegría al recibir sus juguetes.
Esa misma felicidad se extendió a los padres de familia y todos los asistentes que pudieron disfrutar de una noche mágica llena de mucha música, comida, rifas, baile y entretenimiento.
Al dar la bienvenida, los directivos de Asoguate dieron un agrqadecimeinto a todos los auspiciantes del evento y a los asistentes que con su presencia están apoyado el Proyecto Educativo Guatemala 2020 de Asoguate, el cual será desarrollado en Rabinal, Baja Verapaz.
Tras la bienvenida y entrega de regalos a los niños, correspondió a Julio Filicci iniciar el espectáculo musical. Momentos después, Saúl Torres y su banda pusieron a bailar a todos los asistentes. Durante el intermedio de las presentaciones de la banda, DJ René trajo también diferentes ritmos que sonaron fuerte y no permitieron que los asistentes volvieran a sus sillas.
Durante el evento se llevaron a cabo dos rifas: una auspiciada por Liset Jiménez Rodríguez consistente en varias tarjetas de regalo mas una computadora, y la otra organizada por ASOGUATE con muchísimos premios como una canasta navideña, un televisor, una chandelier, un colchón, tratamientos de Spa, una camiseta de Toronto FC y el premio mayor consistente en un document de viaje por mil dolares cortesia de la agencia de viajes Airliners.
Durante el evento los asistentes disfrutaron de variados platillos centroamericanos y suramericanos pero especialmente del ponche y tamal chapín, el cual fue incluido en el boleto de entrada que solamente costó 20 dólares.
Los fondos recaudados serán utilizados para comprar las mochilas y útiles escolares que serán entregados el 3 de febrero en Rabinal, Baja Verapaz, donde la escuela será también reconstruída.
Muchísimas gracias a todas las personas que colaboraron de distintas formas, especialmente los patrocinadores, miembros de la Prensa y todos en general.

The children became the central focus of the successful Christmas Celebration of the Guatemalan Canadian Association, ASOGUATE, organized this past Saturday at the Jamaican Banquet Hall in Toronto.
The hall was already at full capacity at approximately 8pm in the evening when Santa Claus made his appearance to give Christmas gifts to every child present.
The little ones happiness was reflected in their happy faces when they received their toys.
That same happiness was spread to the parents, those who attended, and were able to enjoy a magical night filled with music, food, raffles, and entertainment.
Once they welcomed everyone, executives from ASOGUATE gave thanks to all the sponsors and those who attended, who with their mere presence were supporting ASOGUATE’s 2020 Educational Project, that will be developed in Rabinal, Baja Verapaz.
After the welcome and delivery of gifts, Julio Filicci started the musical spectacle. Moments later, Saul Torres and his band put all those in attendance to dance. During the intermission of the band performances, DJ Rene also brought different rhythms that hit hard and did not let those in attendance return to their seats.
During the event, two raffles were organized, one sponsored by Liset Jimenez Rodriguez consisting of various gift cards as well as a computer. The other, organized by ASOGUATE with many prizes like a Christmas basket, a television, a chandelier, a mattress, Spa packages, a Toronto FC jersey, and the grand prize which consisted of a trip for one thousand dollars courtesy of the Airliners Travel agency.
During the event those in attendance enjoyed a variety of Central American and South American dishes, and especially the Guatemalan tamal and ponche, which was included in the admission tickets which only cost 20 dollars.
The funds raised will be utilized towards school bags and school supplies which will be delivered on the 3rd of February in Rabinal, Baja Verapaz, where a school will also be reconstructed.
Thank you very much to all the people who supported the cause in various ways, especially the sponsors, media members, and everyone in general.

BBQ y Convivio Navideño

Como parte de su calendarización, el tradicional convivio navideño está programado para el 30 de noviembre en el Jamaican Banquet Hall. Debido a que el año pasado las instalaciones fueron insuficientes para albergar a todas las personas que asistieron, en esta oportunidad tendremos a nuestra disposición el salón grande.

Una vez mas, los fondos recaudados estarán destinados para el proyecto educativo del 2020.
Por favor aparte las fechas y esperamos contar con su presencia.

The event will be organized by the Guatemalan Canadian Association, ASOGUATE, for the purpose of entertaining all of the mothers, spend a good time with family and to raise the first funds for the educational project in Guatemala next year.

BBQ and Christmas Celebration

For those of us who are waiting for the arrival of summer, ASOGUATE also has plans for our annual Summer Picnic, which will take place on July 20th.

As part of our yearly scheduling, the traditional Christmas Celebration is planned for November 30th at the Jamaican Banquet Hall. Due to the fact that last year the hall was not large enough to accommodate all of the persons that attended, on this occasion we will have at our disposal the large hall.

Once again, the funds raised will be destined to the educational project of 2020.
Please save the dates and we hope to count on your support.

ASOGUATE Construye Aula en Escuela – ASOGUATE Builds Classroom in School

ASOGUATE builds classroom in School in Guatemala

Directivos y colaboradores de la Asociación Guatemalteca canadiense, ASOGUATE, viajaraon la semana pasada al norte de Guatemala para entregar mochilas con artículos escolares y observar el avance de los trabajos de la construcción de un aula de la escuela de Jumuc, Chicamán, Quiché.

La alegría de los niños, profesores y padres de familia que asistieron fue evidente ; sin embargo, la tristeza, el enojo , la frustración y tantos sentimientos fueron también evidentes entre los visitantes quienes pudieron observar la pobreza y miseria en la que se encuentran las comunidades del área.

Ver niños descalzos, con escasa ropa y con mucho frío, en una región húmeda y de nubes bajas asentada en la sierra de los Cuchumatanes, fue l o que provocó las lágrimas de quienes tuvieron la oportunidad de adentrarse en esa Guatemala profunda, la Guatemala del área rural, la Guatemala a donde no llegan el desayuno escolar, la salud, la justicia social.
Y justo nuestra visita coincidió con el informe del tercer año de gobierno, en el cual el Presidente resaltó sus ‘logros’, logros que están muy lejos de ser vistos por estos niños que difícilmente terminarán el grado 6, ya que las limitaciones económicas los forzarán a contribuir con la economía de la casa dedicándose a la agricultura.
Producto de esta situación, Guatemala se encuentra como uno de los peores países de Latinoamerica en lo que respecta a los índices de desarrollo humano, solo por detrás de Haití.

Este fue el segundo año que ASOGUATE entrega mochilas escolares a los niños de Jumuc, una de las regiones mas afectadas por la guerra de 36 años que afectó Guatemala y cuyas consecuencias pueden observarse en cualquier comunidad del área, región abandonada por las autoridades de turno.

Desde hace 12 años, ASOGUATE realiza diversos eventos para recaudar fondos que le permiten hacer estas donaciones en diferentes partes del país, incluídas Guatemala, Chiquimula, Sololá, Quiché y Sacatepéquez, entre otras.

Por este medio ASOGUATE agradece a todas las personas que participaron en el Convivio Navideño 2018, alos voluntarios y, especialmente, a los patrocinadores con cuyo apoyo se logró realizar este proyecto.

Pronto les mostraremos material gráfico del aula ya terminada !!!

Executives and collaborators from the Guatemalan Canadian Association, ASOGUATE, travelled last week to the north of Guatemala to deliver school bags with school supplies and to observe the progress of the construction workers of the classroom of the Jumuc school in Chicamán, Quiché.

The happiness of the children, teachers and parents who attended was evident ; but nevertheless, the sadness, the anger, the frustration and many other sentiments were also evident in the visitors who could observe the poverty and misery in which the community finds itself.

To see children barefoot, with little clothing and feeling very cold, in a humid region with low clouds settled in the Cuchumatanes mountain range, was what caused the tears of those who had the opportunity to enter that profound Guatemala, the Guatemala of rural areas, the Guatemala where the school breakfast, healthcare, and social justice did not arrive.

And our visit coincided with the news that the government, in its third year had the current president projecting his ‘achievements’, achievements that are far from being seen by these children who will be challenged to finish grade 6, as their economic limitations will forced them to contribute to their household economy dedicating themselves to agriculture.

A product of this situation, Guatemala finds itself as one of the worst countries in Latin America with respect to indexes of human development, just behind Haiti.

This was the second year that ASOGUATE donated school bags to the children of Jumuc, one of the regions most affected by the civil war of 36 years that affected Guatemala, and whose consequences can be observed in any community in the area, a region which was abandoned by the current authorities.

Since 12 years ago, ASOGUATE has organized a diverse array of events raising funds that allow it to make donations in different parts of the country, including Guatemala City, Sololá, Quiché, and Sacatepéquez, among others.

Through this medium ASOGUATE would like to thank all of people who participated at the Christmas Celebration 2018, to the volunteers, and especially the sponsors whose support allowed the realization of this project.

Soon, we will show you more graphic material of the finished classroom!!!
