Thelma’s children attend one of the Niños de Guatemala schools. As a single mom, her role as a housekeeper at Good Hotel Antigua was Thelma's first paid job. Nowadays, Thelma and her friends also make traditional worry dolls for our hotels, and through this, we have given her a new opportunity to set up her own business.
Melany was the first of her family to graduate from school, thanks to our charity partner Niños de Guatemala. In collaboration with NDG, Good Hotel Antigua offers the Good Academy, so that children like Melany get an opportunity to gain the skills needed to pursue a career in hospitality so that she can provide for herself and her family.
