Partner Family Central

Partner Family Central

We are a community of families that bridge international boundaries as well as divergent ethnic and cultural traditions, by correspondence.11111111

In our writing to one another twice each year, we learn of the accomplishments, the struggles, the meaning of family, and the perspectives that comer from each writer’s environment and heritage.   Over time, we come to know and understand one another.  In many cases, we plan for the day we can meet in person!1

There are over 300 families partaking in this partnership.  Half of us live in the rain forested village of Santa Maria Tzeja, locate din the Ixcan region of Guatemala.   And half of us live somewhere in the United States, with many of us concentrated in Needham, MA.

The partnership was founded in 1987.  It is based at the Congregational Church of Needham, Needham, MA.

Here’s the place to get caught up with the news of the partnership, or perhaps pick up and idea or tow to incorporated in a letter your will soon be sending.

Are you looking for more families to partner with? We (my husband, 14 year old daughter), and I are interested. We are in Natick and learned of your project through our church in Natick (1st Congregational). We know that most of the families speak K’iche’, but my daughter and I speak Spanish (she is in a native speakers class) and could help translate or just write our own letter in Spanish, whatever helps. We hope we can become a part of your special relationship!
