About Us

Our Approach

To bring targeted resources to bear in high risk situations where we can have maximum impact in the lives of those we serve. Cadanino directs funds toward projects that align with our mission, we come along side existing organizations and supplement their efforts by creating programs that meet a need for their constituents.

Vocational training for orphans, dayhab for the profoundly disabled at a government home, etc. Where no one is serving a vulnerable population, we use our resources to create programs that are beneficial at meeting a particular need, such as our community center in Colonia Santa Fe.


The Cadanino Foundation

The Cadanino Foundation is a joint effort of the Cadanino ministry founded by James Waller in 2009, and the Skills for Life Foundation, founded by Timothy and Sharie Martiny in 2008.

As we worked together on projects, we began to see how our combined ministries could be better served by combining our efforts to serve the orphaned, vulnerable and disabled in Guatemala.

  • - James 1:27

    27 Religion that is pure and good before God the Father is to help children who have no parents and to care for women whose husbands have died who have troubles. Pure religion is also to keep yourself clean from the sinful things of the world.

    - James 1:27
  • Cadanino endeavors to work within the continuum of care for those we work with, given the resources available.
  • Serving orphaned, vulnerable and disabled children in Guatemala.
