I remember in school doing cards for all my school friends and exchanging cards, chocolates and sweets.
In the city, residents are more affluent and can make personalized biscuits and chocolates, however is estimated that in the rural communities, 75% live below the poverty line.
This photo of nursery children at the Mayan Families Tierra Linda, in Guatemala's highlands, celebrated "Dia del Carino", Valentine's Day making arts and crafts, having a corn tortilla and getting a stuffed toy to take home.
I would like to share some photos of how people in Guatemala celebrate and to give useful information if you would like to get involved with Mayan families.
