The Riecken Foundation promotes a network of innovative community libraries in Honduras and Guatemala that awaken the spirit of discovery and social participation through activities in the libraries. We have shown that community libraries are essential to a democratic society. Libraries are institutions that citizens use to make informed decisions and reach their full potential. They provide essential knowledge, encourage critical thinking, and encourage self-education and lifelong learning.
For over 36 years, Potter's House has walked alongside individuals, families and communities living in poverty and extreme poverty to develop long-term relationships and provide opportunities for holistic development through our 5 programs: Family Development, Education, Health and Nutrition, Microenterprise and Community Development.
From physical and mental transformation to spiritual transformation, we want to empower people in poverty throughout Guatemala and make significant changes in their lives and communities.
